Event title: Changing careers and transferrable skills.

Date: Wednesday 11th May

Time: 12 – 12:40pm

Platform: Zoom

Cost: FREE!

Hosted by Luiza Todd of BTS, the session will focus on what it’s like getting into financial services as a second careerist; the pros, the cons, and how to identify your transferrable skills.

Ben Stebbings is a financial planner working for Unity Wealth Management in Fareham on the South Coast. He is a career changer having recently made the switch to financial services. The desire to become a financial planner was born out of wanting to build his ideal life and be able to do the same for his clients. This combined with the experience of seeing the value an adviser can bring when witnessing a meeting with his father four years ago that allowed him to retire from a career he despised, inspired Ben to make the move. In a previous life, Ben spent seven years in various commercial roles within the sports medicine and orthopaedic industry and before that seven years as a cricketer. Both careers provided valuable experience and skills that he is now applying to his role as a financial planner.

Anuj Dal is a current professional cricketer at Derbyshire County Cricket Club with 65 First Class Appearances, previously at Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and former England U19s cricketer. He is also the Vice Chair of the Professional Cricketers’ Association. Anuj first started looking into the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning in 2019 when he was into the last year of his contract at Derbyshire. Unsure whether or not his contract was going to be extended, he began looking at alternative career options. Anuj attended an academy open evening at St James’s Place which sparked his interest even further and has since managed to get 5 of 6 exams completed with R06 to be done in January next year, alongside his cricketing career.
