Infinity’s manifesto for millennial recruits – are you up for it?
Written by Vanessa Vrdoljak on May 17, 2018.
Are you a millennial? If so, you might be fed up of the stereotypes associated with your generation – glued to your phones, eating overpriced smashed avocado on toast by the bucketload while not paying bills and in debt up to the eyeballs with a degree which isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.
Here at Infinity, we don’t see millennials that way (although the phone thing might just have a grain of truth in it!). We recognise that you are a generation brimming with energy, savvy with social media and that the future of our businesses depend on you.
We also know that you don’t do things the same way your parents did. Your priorities are not the same and you are looking at alternative ways of living and working. So here is our manifesto for hard-working recruits who want a role with a difference:
1. We will reward high achievers
We know that for many millennials, it’s not all about the money but that said, you do need to make a living. We believe in rewarding hard work and results and our pay structure reflects that.
2. We will encourage new ideas and free thinking
One of our consultants wanted to write a book to help expats meet their financial goals – we helped him achieve that goal. Others have identified specific audiences that they want to target and we’ve provided the tools for them to do that via blogs and social media. We love it when our consultants are innovative and dynamic and we will do our utmost to make their initiatives happen.
3. We will support employees who want to make a difference
One of our consultants in Hong Kong is on a mission to promote LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace and we have put our wholehearted support behind him. Together we’ve even managed to win an award for our work in the LGBT+ community. We’re open to ideas and will help you make things happen.
4. We will have some fun!
It’s a cliché but work hard, play hard just about sums up our company philosophy. What’s not to love about get togethers in exotic locations complete with dunk tanks and sumo wrestling? (That was this year’s annual conference in Penang).
5. You can change lives
You might have preconceived ideas about what a financial planner is like - but leave those at the door. Yes, you’ll need to be comfortable with figures but this is most definitely not just another boring number-crunching role. Above all you need to be a people person. And if you’re looking to do a job that matters, any of our financial advisers will tell you just what an impact great financial planning can have on people’s lives.
If you like the sound of all this, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s have a chat!
