What you will experience
On joining PPF you will have an opportunity to help our clients grow and achieve their goals, whilst also growing yourself and achieving your own personal goals.
You will be able to help build and shape PPF as we grow, and take an active role in improving processes and making the role your own. Your thoughts and ideas will not only be listened to, but encouraged and explored.
You will be able to work from home or wherever you want, as long as you have an internet connection – and have flexibility to set your own schedule around your family/life, so you don’t miss out on all those important life milestones – basically what suits you and your clients. You will work in a business that focuses on results and outcomes – not how many hours you put in.
You will join weekly Zoom team meetings, and depending on where you are based you will also join our monthly in person days at The Residence in Bishops Stortford.
You will be required to join our annual team day, and also have the opportunity to attend XeroCon with the team, and other industry events and training opportunities.
You will get to work with some pretty amazing clients, across a range of industries. You will work in partnership with some really lovely people who value what you and PPF do.
You will have an amazing team to support you: people who love what they do, love this company, and care for each other! You will feel valued, appreciated and supported, and will be a part of something special that is really helping others to build the life they want, whilst also doing this for yourself.
