    Hi guys, im considering doing my diploma in financial planning over the next 12 months. I'm just wondering how hard it would be to get part time work after that to get experience? I could then stay in my current job (not related) and also get experience part time so that I dont loose a tone of money in a career change. Any info or advice would be great.

    Hi there,

    I have not seen many/any part time jobs offered for planners. The only option might be an office looking for a part time assistant. Don't overlook it as an idea though. It was my 'foot in the door' 7 years ago, and the fundamental tasks performed by others have been appreciated by me ever since moving into an advisory role!

    Best of luck, Lloyd.
