Job Title: Employee Benefits & Payroll Administrator

Part Time (approximately 15 hours a week)

Location: Hybrid working (office and home)

Our Company:

Alex Simpson established Harding Financial Ltd in 2011 with the goal of becoming the South East’s premier independent financial planning and employee benefits firm. The Retail Distribution Review had just been announced by the Financial Services Authority, and was to be enforced on 1st January 2013. At the time many advisory firms were downsizing or even leaving the industry to avoid the more stringent legislation and qualification requirements. Alex saw this as a brilliant opportunity to launch Harding Financial and improve the reputation of independent financial advice while providing clients with a highly professional and personally tailored service.

Our team has steadily grown and everyone shares Alex’s commitment to trustworthy advice of the highest quality. Some might even say we are obsessive about creating the best possible outcomes for all of our clients.

Everyone at Harding is proud to know that we do more research, talk to more people - in and out of the industry - attend more seminars, read more books and articles, take more exams, continually boost our knowledge levels, debate and discuss, live and laugh, smile and frown more than any other business you’ll ever engage with.
