The recruitment process continues to be a "major obstacle" for the majority of wrap platform Nucleus members, according to a recent survey.
In a survey of platform members, 73% said they found the recruitment process difficult and a further 66% stated they used a recruitment agency to help them fill positions.
Nucleus has today published a guide to adviser recruitment in its white paper, 'Recruitment for financial planning practices'.
Nucleus business development director Barry Neilson said: "Many firms have now developed an infrastructure that can support additional advisers and paraplanners and recruitment now forms a key element of their growth strategy. When recruitment is carefully considered, it can be a reasonably straightforward process.
"We hope that our white paper will have cleared some of the fog surrounding recruitment and allow firms to plan for a clear and structured process."
