Welcome to our new apprentice

We are pleased to announce that Jess Harding has joined Allen Tomas Financial Management as an apprentice Financial Administrator.

Jess has joined us after completing her GCSE's. From a young age, Jess had the ambition to work in financial services, so when an apprenticeship was offered, she sa
w this as a great opportunity. She is determined to achieve the position of a Paraplanner by successfully completing her qualifications with the Chartered Insurance Institute and her training within our firm.

Outside work, she enjoys street dancing and has competed in the World Championships in Glasgow being placed 11th out of 57. This gave her a massive confidence boost leading onto her finishing 1st in the British Championship Duos. In her childhood she lived in Spain for 7 years, attending Spanish school which means we now have a fluent Spanish speaking employee!
