Who are Wesleyan
Wesleyan has had the interests of its members at its core since it was founded in Birmingham in 1841.
In recent years, it has developed a highly successful business model providing tailored financial advice and products to select professional groups, notably GPs, hospital doctors, dentists, teachers and lawyers and a range of commercial financial products for the organisations in which they are employed.
Each segment is served by dedicated Financial Consultants who work only within that segment and thus build-up specialist knowledge of their professional customers.
At Wesleyan, we believe everyone has the right to proudly be themselves. Supporting each other, our members, customers and our communities as well as having a clear sense of purpose and passion for all we do, really makes a difference.
We know the best teams are made up of inclusive groups of diverse people, and everyone's contribution counts. With the support of our partners and employees, we're building a culture where difference is encouraged. We set out to recruit the best people for the job irrespective of age, disability, sex, race, religion or belief, gender reassignment and sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity.
We are signatories of HM Treasury's Women in Finance Charter, a founding member of Women in Business network (in our home city of Birmingham), and have a five-year membership commitment to WISE, the campaign for gender balance in the UK science, technology and engineering sectors. We are members of Stonewall's Diversity Champions programme, and we are committed to strengthening our position in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index.
We are unable to employ anyone who does not have the legal right to live and work in the UK. If you are from outside the EEA and do not possess immigration status which allows you to live and work in the UK, we will be unable to progress your application as Wesleyan are unable to provide sponsorship. Therefore, in the recruitment process all candidates are required to provide the necessary right to work information and documentation.
Any unsolicited submissions from agencies will be accepted as a direct application from the candidate and no fees will be payable.
We reserve the right depending on application numbers to close or extend the closing dates for positions; we would therefore recommend an early application.
