Returning to Becketts after completing my final year at university has proven to be a great decision.
Working with a team of likeminded individuals who consistently aim to improve, makes for a work place with an abundance of job satisfaction. The work you do is appreciated by your colleagues and support is always offered. For these reasons I couldn’t recommend Becketts highly enough.
I?ve been at Becketts for just over 2 months now and already feel part of the team. The advantage of working in an open plan office is that everyone interacts with everyone else and when the team is as welcoming and friendly as the staff here, that can only be a good thing. I must also say that having a Managing Director, Ian White, who is so focused on the wellbeing and happiness of his staff is refreshing in a day and age of fine margins and pushing for profitability.
Having friendly staff is backed up by the professionalism of the company as well and having offices to reflect this. The offices are something to be proud of and because of this we hope clients will want to come and conduct their meetings in them. Studying for further qualifications is actively encouraged and this has resulted in a support staff almost as qualified as the advisers they are supporting. This shows me the company truly believes in trying to improve standards within the industry.
I feel very happy here and, within two months, I already know this is definitely a company I want to be at for the long term.
I joined Becketts as a Senior Consultant in the Private Client team August 2018, having previously worked for a number of smaller IFA firms in the Suffolk area.
I have found the environment to be supportive, positive and friendly. There is a real emphasis on ?team?, with open communication between all areas of the business.
Management constantly seeks both client and employee feedback to continue to drive improvement, and I am certain that this positive ethos is apparent to our clients.
Part of the reason for me joining Beckett Financial Services was the prospects they offer and the chance to really develop myself.
As well as that, since being here I have realised what a really positive atmosphere there is around the office.
I would recommend anyone looking to move forward in their career in a professional and friendly environment to apply here.
I have already recommended several people to join Beckett Financial Services in various roles.
As an employee, I have never felt more important to a company; my suggestions are heard and encouraged, and the level of support I have been provided - both professional and personal - has been incredible.
I was looking to join a firm that would allow me develop myself and open up new opportunities to me, and Becketts seemed like the perfect place to do so. Since I have joined I have felt welcomed by everyone, and already feel like a firm member of the team. Views are welcomed by the management and they take a real interest in what you have to say.
I have never felt more important at a company than I do here.
I would recommend Becketts to anyone who is looking to develop themselves whilst also working in a friendly and positive environment.
I have been at Beckett's for several weeks now, working in their Healthcare division in Kibworth, Leicesteshire, and I am learning something new everyday.

The Kibworth office is a great place to work and I couldn't have asked for a nicer group of people to work with, who have all taken the time to support me.
I would recommend anyone looking for a career in financial services who wants to work in a friendly environment to apply to Becketts.
I have been made to feel very welcome and included by everyone and not just those in my team. Everyone has been more than willing to help with any questions I have and colleagues, at all levels regularly check in with me and ask how I am getting on so that I feel very supported.
The office has a great atmosphere and I would fully recommend Becketts as a place to work.
After graduating from University in July 2017, I didn't really know what to expect when I joined but my first few months has proved to me that Becketts has been the ideal place for me to begin my working life.
I was made to feel like I was part of the team instantly and the level of support I have received since has been exemplary. I feel my work is valued by all the team, no matter the level, which is very rewarding.
Based on my experience, I would deeply recommend Becketts to anyone, whatever level of experience, who wants to work in the financial services sector. The perfect start to life after University.

Becketts is a great Company to work for, with a fantastic group of people who have all taken the time to support me and help me get settled in to my role as quickly as possible.
I had visited the Beckett?s office a number of times before joining as an employee and each time I was made to feel welcome. Since joining, I have been fully integrated into my team and made to feel important for every piece of work that I complete which is very rewarding as an employee.
Staff welfare is the best I have seen of any company and Becketts will make sure you are always happy and motivated.

Becketts is a very caring company, and I am so pleased to be working here.

Working here, I am really made to feel an important member of the Employee Benefits team that I work in. I would recommend Becketts to anyone looking for a career in Financial Services.
I joined Becketts in February 2018 and this move to a Professional Company made me realise I should have done it a long time ago!
I was made to feel extremely welcome on my first day and have been made to feel at home and part of the team, with everyone being so helpful and friendly. It is a pleasure and delight to work with a mixed group of people of all levels and ages.
I would not hesitate in recommending Becketts to anyone, the level of support, training and benefits are second to none.
Coming into an industry of which I had no knowledge or background, I was somewhat apprehensive. However, from the day I started, there has been warmth and encouragement which has driven me to learn more, and strive to always better myself.
Even though I have little experience, my work is highly valued. Everyone is made to feel appreciated. Training and support is exceptional, and there is always someone to help.
I can strongly say that I have been given the best start to my career within the financial sector.
After completing my A levels I chose to begin full time work at Becketts over other options such as going to study at university. I have now been at Becketts for two months and taking on a role here was honestly the best decision I could have made. Everyone at Becketts has made me feel very welcome, encouraged and have filled me with confidence.
They have achieved an excellent working atmosphere in which everyone is respected equally and so I would recommend Becketts to anyone of any level of experience.
