Ryan Etchells – Client Support Administrator

Ryan is part of the LIFT-Academy graduate programme and a popular member of the team.


I joined LIFT-Financial Group in August 2016, fresh out of college as an apprentice. I've moved around the company in the past three years, starting out as a Technical Support Apprentice and then becoming an administrator to the Servicing Team. I then spent some time in the Group Team before landing where I am now, in Client Support. This has boosted my product knowledge and my understanding of the financial planning process immensely. I’ve also been able to see first-hand how all the teams are interlinked to provide the best service possible to our clients.


I joined the LIFT-Academy programme in May 2018, when it was rebranded from the Graduate Scheme, enabling it to be more inclusive. During my time here, I’ve passed 11 exams and gained the CII Diploma in Financial Planning. Having the financial support to complete these exams has helped me greatly and I am hoping to progress on to Chartered/Fellowship status and beyond!
