I want to change career

Whatever your background or experience, becoming a financial adviser is both accessible and achievable.

People who study with us come from a range of different backgrounds. We’ve helped people who:

  • have previously worked in completely different fields – from teaching, to the oil and gas industry
  • are changing careers after having spent several decades in one profession
  • started working in a particular industry after university but decided it wasn’t for them.

Importantly, Quilter Financial Adviser School isn’t just for school leavers or university graduates, but for anyone of any age who wants to retrain.

Even if you think your previous experience is unrelated to financial advice, the likelihood is you’ll have valuable skills – such as dealing with people and time management – that will be highly prized.
