A Midland company is looking for recruits to spearhead its campaign to persuade people to prepare for the one certainty in life by making a will.
Financial planning company The Premier Group believes too many people are neglecting to make a will - risking potentially serious financial repercussions for loved ones.
The company, based in Shirley, Solihull, has launched Premier Wills and Estate Planning to encourage new and existing clients to ensure assets are protected.
Managing director David Morris and technical manager Amira Norris are fellows of the Institute of Professional Will Writers.
They are looking to recruit and train a team of up to 40 specialist will writers and estate plan-ners. No experience is needed as the company will provide the necessary training and put recruits through the required Institute exams.
Amira Norris said: "The area of estate planning has been transformed in recent years and it is vital that people get themselves a will or risk the consequences.
"The public no longer need to go and see a solicitor to have a will written and, in fact, many lawyers do not want to get involved in the process through lack of confidence and expertise.
"That's why we believe there is a major opportunity for a team of fully qualified specialist will writers to provide the service and we would be delighted to hear from anyone that may want to find out more about building a career in estate planning. Only a small proportion of the UK population has got a will and the fact is that everyone should have one. If they don't, the consequences could be dire and the wrong people could benefit from their estate.
"We are launching a major drive to make people aware of the problems that can be caused for the loved ones left behind if you don't have a will.
"There is a huge need for an awareness campaign as more and more people have assets of over £285,000, particularly with the rise in house prices over recent years, putting them over the inheritance tax threshold."
David Morris said: "Death is the only certainty in life and we have all got to make sure that our estate goes to the people that we want it to go to, rather than those we don't - including the taxman.
"The will writing service is a natural progression of our business. It will provide clients with an additional service and fits in with our ethos of being a one-stop-shop for all financial needs."
