A financial services company in Chorley has announced that it is launching a new graduate recruitment scheme.

Sylvia Bentham, managing director of 1st Chartered, revealed that she is in discussions with a local university about securing high-class graduates for her firm.

The move, which is designed to lay the foundations for the company's regional expansion plans, will see university leavers trained to be paraplanners, then advisers, Citywire reports.

"I intend to give the graduates a lot of client contact and work dealing with the client information so that they learn the business quickly," Ms Bentham told the news provider.

"That includes writing up the notes from client meetings, which I will dictate to them."

Ms Bentham added that she will be selling her systems and controls to independent financial advisers who are failing to meet their retail distribution review obligations.

Meanwhile, Mike Locke, director of public affairs at Volunteering England, claimed recently that the National Citizen Service will "draw youngsters in".ADNFCR-1068-ID-19915236-ADNFCR
