Accredited paraplanner Claire Goodwin is set to join outsourced business The Paraplanners later this month.
Goodwin, a member of the Institute of Financial Planning's paraplanning working group, is due to join the company on 20 January from financial planners the Taylor Oliver Partnership.
She will be working alongside fellow paraplanners Kim Bendall, Kat Mock and company founder Richard Allum, as well as Gemma Dennis, who leads The Paraplanners' client administrative management service.
Goodwin said: "Having never worked in a team of paraplanners before, I'm absolutely delighted to be joining such a great firm. I look forward to getting my teeth into some of the technical challenges and getting to know the people who make The Paraplanners what it is."
Allum added: "It's a real compliment to the team that we've built at The Paraplanners that we're able to catch the eye of talented paraplanners like Claire. We're ever so pleased to welcome her to the team."
The Paraplanners' Kim Bendall won the Professional Adviser 'Paraplanner of the Year' award in 2013.
