SJP extends training academy to Edinburgh


St James’s Place is to expand its academy programme into Scotland with the launch of an Edinburgh operation.

The firm launched the programme in 2007 with the aim of training future SJP advisers and has academies in London, Manchester and Solihull.

The Edinburgh unit will take in candidates from next February, with interveiws beginning this month in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast.

SJP Academy director Adrian Batchelor says: “The opening of Edinburgh demonstrates the success of the SJP academies to date. Edinburgh was chosen to further extend our regional coverage and create greater opportunities throughout the North-east and Scotland.

“I would encourage anyone who is thinking of a career change to consider the opportunities the Academy has to offer which include being in control of your own business and work-life balance.”
