We offer better rewards than almost any other graduate employer. But we have higher expectations than almost any other graduate employer as well. Here, you have to give nothing less than everything, every day.

Your initial package

As an example, if Dubai was chosen for your first foundation training year after Malta, we will pay you an income and accommodation package that is circa £24,000 p.a (as exchange rates vary). But this is your NET take home amount. This equates to around £30,000 gross in UK, since income tax, national insurance, and student loan repayment is deducted if you work in UK. But Dubai has no such taxes.

Each graduate Business Development Academy income package varies depending on cost of living. Dubai above is an example from the 5 available. For those with a year’s experience or more our global office packages also vary dependant on the country.

On top of this there will be bonus earning potential via commissions and incentives which could take you to the earnings levels below.

At the end of graduate field training you will undertake an intense conversion training culminating in you becoming a Wealth Manager/Adviser. Year 3 and 4 earnings will be based upon the same package, or a similar package dependent upon location. Be tenacious, put the hours in, aim high and keep bettering yourself, and based on our past experience of successful candidates and our existing Wealth Managers and Advisers, this is what we expect you to earn in the next four years.
