Freelance paraplanners

by Richard Allum on 26 May 2008

We have been asked by several people to set up a category for paraplanners working on a freelance basis and so here it is.  We will aim to add articles specific to freelancers and also those running or working within an outsourced paraplanning business as there are a growing number of these including mine We have also added a separate section on the Forum where you can start your own topics.  If you are a freelancer or outsourcer (if there is such a word) and would like to write an article or comment on an issue (e.g. how you do it, why you do it etc) then please feel free to get in touch.

Whilst there does appear to be quite a few individuals who have managed to set up a business as freelance paraplanners there seems to be little opportunities for individual paraplanners such as myself to earn that little bit extra by doing 5-10 hours work on a evening.

If anybody is interested in offering such an opportunity then please get in touch as I know of quite a few Paraplanners who would be only to willing to offer a few hours a week to individual IFA’s.

Hi from Australia,
As a tip for would-be freelance paraplanners who would like to take on work over the weekend or weeknights, I normally recommend you take on lower-complexity work. The reason for this is that there is less likelihood of needing feedback from your IFA during your normal work hours. Only a small tip but worth considering.

Cheers

Rich
