Before starting university some years ago, James previously worked for us in our admin team. Then after graduating from Roehampton University, where he spent 3 years studying Business Management, he came back to work for us again.
James then sadly left again us again, but this time to fulfil his wanderlust and to enjoy a wonderful year travelling around Australia. In his own words
"The best part was definitely scuba diving in the great barrier reef, but highlights were also skydiving in Airlie, bungee jumping in Cairns and just a great time driving around, taking in the stunning scenery, wonderful beaches and enjoying the sun".
Now James has returned, and he’s decided to come back to Magus and follow a career in Financial Planning, joining the Magus Adviser Academy, our structured career program. He’ll be working across every part of our business so he can gain lots of knowledge, experience and new skills. It also means James has a really varied role and he likes the fact he gets to deal with lots of different clients.
"I really enjoy the interaction I have with our clients, every day brings something new. I like the diversity and the fact that no 2 days are ever the same’.
Team spirit is also very important to James, he likes the close-knit family feel here at Magus and it’s what keeps him coming back.
"One of the best things about working at Magus is the team. Everyone is very professional, supportive and highly skilled, so I’m always learning something new - there’s also a real family feel and sense of fun here too, which makes it a really enjoyable place to work’.
Outside of work James loves to be outdoors hiking and camping, with a soft spot for the beautiful Lake District.
