SJP rolls Academy out to Manchester

St James’s Place Wealth Management has expandeded its academy programme by launching a trainging programme in Manchester.

The SJP Academy is a two-year training programme aimed at second-careerists, especially professionals in other fields with no previous experience in financial advice.

Candidates can then build their own wealth management businesses by becoming partners within SJP when they graduate. SJP has been running the academy programme in London since January 2012 and is on its seventh intake.

It is currently interviewing for the Manchester programme, which will begin in June. There will be around 15 places.

SJP Academy director Adrian Batchelor says: “The idea of Manchester is to expand the Academy – we are looking at other parts of the country as well. At the moment training is in London but people from all around the country are interested so we chose Manchester to attract people in the North East and Scotland. As we haven’t done this before we are waiting to see the response we get.”

Previous Academy graduate Sophie De Rouet, now a partner with SJP, says: “The expansion of the academy will provide even more opportunity to those who want to pursue a career in wealth management.”
