What does a typical day look like for you?
My day usually starts with an informal team meeting to catch up on any client developments and talk through priorities for the day.
Then it’s on to our client work. As a new trainee you’re guided through each process step-by-step, and are supported by your teammates, manager and buddy. This helps you settle in and pick up the skills you need quickly and confidently whilst being fully supported.
As you progress, you take on more responsibility and become the client’s main point of contact for different types of work, such as settling payments, updating investor records, or other queries about the fund.
After two years, I was promoted to Fund Administrator, which meant taking on more challenging work such as setting up new funds and taking on new clients, which I enjoy.
At Aztec, we have fantastic support with internal training and professional qualifications. As an administrator, you’re encouraged to study for your ICSA professional exams, which lead to qualified Chartered Secretary status. I hope to be fully qualified in the next few years.
On a personal level, Aztec has also been really supportive of my footballing commitments; I play for the Jersey Bulls and they’ve provided financial support to cover my travel expenses to away matches, and are flexible with time off around matches. They’re even laying on a team social event for the whole team to come watch us play soon which is incredible!
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Building close relationships with my clients – I get a lot of satisfaction from helping them with their growing funds and success. I also love the active social scene here. We have a welcome lunch whenever anyone new joins the team, as well as quarterly team socials. Recent activities have included the silent disco bus, a Jersey RIB tour and a mini-golf event. We also just had our epic après-ski themed Christmas party.
Would you recommend Aztec as a place to work?
Absolutely! Aztec is a growing business, and a very supportive and rewarding place to work, and you’ll gain professional qualifications whilst earning at the same time. I’m so glad I took this path!
