As a Disability Confident Committed Employer we have committed to:
Having met with Ian and Gavin as well as numerous phone calls (!) I arrived at Becketts on 1st July having been promised that this would be the place to work for a ‘long in the tooth’ IFA! I have not been disappointed! In fact, the experience to date has been very positive and made to feel welcome from the first day. The team I am working with are so helpful and motivated to make sure that the client receives the best possible service. This gives me great confidence in the experience for clients in a world where service seems to figure low down on the list of priorities for many organisations. I look forward to working with the Becketts team for many years to come and happy to recommend the company for clients and prospective employees.
I joined Becketts on the beginning of November shortly after finishing my four years of University, this involved relocating away from home and being some distance away from most friends and family. Because of this, I was exceedingly nervous to make a start to working life. One month later it’s safe to say I’m happy to have chosen Becketts; from the first day I was introduced to a friendly and helpful office of people who helped me settle in quickly. I am very grateful for the abundant level of support I’ve received from my team to become competent in my new role. I would strongly recommend joining Becketts to anyone looking to kickstart their career in financial planning.
I joined Becketts in early October 2021, over a year since finishing my Business Studies degree at the University of Lincoln. I was excited to finally start in career at an established financial company and what a great place to start. Right from the first day, the environment was extremely welcoming and everyone made me feel comfortable as a new member of staff. My team have been amazing helping me learn and answering my seemingly endless questions! The employee benefits as well as the general culture surrounding the working environment is exceptional at Becketts and I feel privileged to be a part of it. Becketts is ever growing, but the clients and employees are always at the forefront of everything they do. I look forward to continuing my personal development and growing alongside the company for years to come.
I joined Becketts after working in isolation throughout the lockdowns and in a small office with my previous employer. I was excited but anxious about joining a larger business and an open plan office. I have enjoyed how welcoming Becketts is for new employees. The social groups like the film club, book club, nights out and football games are a great way to quickly feel involved in the team. I would have no hesitation in recommending Becketts as a company with integrity and a good workplace ethos, which looks after both their employees and clients with equal attention to detail.
I joined Becketts after a lengthy lockdown, furlough and return to work after illness. The resultant low level of confidence and high level of trepidation on my part have been met with unfailing support and encouragement from the management team and my work colleagues. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Becketts as a company with integrity and a good workplace ethos, which looks after both employee and client with equal attention to detail.
Although I have only been with Becketts Financial Services for just over a month, I have been made to feel part of the team straight from the start. Despite working at home in lockdown, I have been fully supported by both senior management and by my colleagues. I have been encouraged to engage with other members of staff, to fully understand the workings of the company, enabling me to complete my role with a good understanding. I would go so far as to say Becketts is like a ‘Breath of fresh air’ in their attitude to their working environment, with a sense of fun to bring us all together.
I joined Becketts mid-November 2020 during exceptional times when most colleagues were working from home. Right from the first day everyone made me feel very welcome and my concerns over learning about my role from home were soon eased. There is nothing your colleagues would not support you with on all levels and I feel very well looked after by management. Becketts is a company that not only puts the client in the focus in everything they do, but also care about the wellbeing and personal development of their own staff. I would highly recommend Becketts to anyone considering a new position on any level.
I have been with Becketts since September 2020 in a year which can only be described as unprecedented. Any nerves I had prior to joining quickly disappeared on my first day, as I have been made to feel part of the team and supported by all my colleagues. Becketts is an extremely supportive and friendly environment to work in and the senior management are very receptive to new ideas. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Becketts to someone that is looking for a role within Financial Services.
I joined Becketts in July 2020 when they bought Brown Shipley’s Employee Benefits business. It was in the middle of lockdown during the Covid 19 pandemic so under very unusual circumstances. Becketts have made myself and the Team very welcome through online training and virtual meetings. It is clear that the different departments work very closely together and that the firm is professional in their approach to clients. I have felt from the beginning that the management are very caring towards their staff. I am very happy to be part of the Becketts Employee Benefits Team.
Despite having had the strangest start to a new job by starting in the middle of a pandemic I can honestly say that I have been impressed by the level of support I have been given. The care shown to me personally and management of the expectations of a new role in these challenging times has been a very welcome change. I feel right at home already.
I have now been with Becketts for two months and have felt totally justified in my decision to accept a position here. I have been made to feel very welcome by all and have received great support from my team as I learn the ropes. Becketts stands outs for its calm, professional and supportive working environment, which is nurtured by senior management. I enjoy coming to work and am eager to see where my career with Becketts will take me.
I joined Becketts a little over two months ago and at first was nervous to change industry but the nerves quickly went away, as on my first day I was welcomed by the whole team. Becketts is such a supportive and friendly environment to work in, especially as there is a very strong culture of looking after the employees from the senior managers.
Becketts support the team through study and career progression, and I am really excited to see where my career progresses within Becketts.
Joining Becketts within days of finishing university I was excited yet slightly nervous given this has been my first experience of full time employment. However, now just over two months in, I feel fully integrated into the private client team, largely down to the positive and encouraging atmosphere that is created around the office.
Personal development and progression opportunities were key factors in my decision to join Becketts. After only a fairly short period of time, I feel through the possibilities to study professional qualifications coupled with a supportive working environment, I am encouraged to perform to the best of my abilities.
I would recommend Becketts to anyone whether they’re someone looking for an entry into the financial services industry or seeking positions with more experience.
I have been at Becketts for just over two months and have been impressed with the positive atmosphere around the office. I had forgotten quite what that feeling was like! Being a newbie at the age of 61 was not something I was looking forward to, but I immediately felt at home as everyone made me feel very welcome and were very supportive.
For a variety of reasons, my first two months here have not been as straightforward as I might have hoped, but Richard Branson’s popular quote ‘Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your clients’ has been in clear evidence. I am firm believer in this approach and it is obvious to me that this is concept is central to the Becketts ethos.
I have been at Becketts for two months and am blown away by how welcoming everyone has been. Whenever I have required assistance with anything, there has always been a colleague to help and explain the reasoning behind the process. Being surrounded by professionals with such a strong knowledge base in their field is aiding me to further my learning and pick up information at a remarkable rate. I am already very proud to be working under the Becketts name and can’t wait to progress in my career.
I have never worked with a more friendlier bunch of colleagues before. Becketts is an office with an excellent work atmosphere and a work ethic common amongst all staff and that is clients come first.
Everyone at Becketts has made me feel very welcome. I have been particularly impressed by the supportive and cooperative environment. The company is professional, yet friendly, and I have already referred a friend for a job opportunity. The client is the focus in everything Becketts does and I’m already proud to be working here
From the moment I accepted my position with Becketts I have been warmly welcomed by all of the staff and made to feel a valued part of the team.
The Kibworth office is a lovely place to work and I have been impressed with the time, care and attention the team have shown to me in order to make me feel settled and empowered in my role.
Professional and friendly, I couldn’t ask for a nicer place to work. I recommend Becketts to others considering a career in the Financial Services without reservation.
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.

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.

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.
I had visited the Becketts' 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.

I would not hesitate in recommending Becketts to anyone, the level of support, training and benefits are second to none.

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.
