Your future with us
We’re glad to hear that you’re considering a future with us here at Empire Financial Group. Like the way we do business, we recruit a little differently too. We like to tell you about us right at the start so you know who we are and what we do so you can make an informed decision about whether we are a potential fit before we even meet.
At Empire, we are forever evolving – we place a large emphasis on consistently delivering a professional client-focused offer, and seeking the input of our team on how we can continue to be a market leader . We take a team approach to our clients’ finances, with our experts combining different specialties so the client benefits from the strengths of everyone in the strategic financial planning team. We offer our clients the whole team, so that we all get to know them, their circumstances and their needs.
We are industry leaders and recognised as experts in our field – our opinions contribute regularly to The West Australian, The Sunday Times and we’ve also found ourselves providing commentary to the Channel 7 nightly news. We spend time with companies talking to their teams, from boardrooms in the city, to remote minesites presenting to FIFO workers. Professional and business associations like the Institute of Public Accountants, the British Business Network and Business Women Australia call on us to facilitate training and education to their members. Most important of all though, is the reputation we have with our clients. The graphic below shows the results from a recent independent Beddoes Institute survey placing us in the top 3% of financial planning practices in Australia based on the responses of our clients.
We’d love you to review our website and Facebook page to see lots of other examples of what we have achieved.
Empire is proud to support a variety of community activities. We are the hosts of the annual Empire Ladies’ Sparkling High Tea, and our position in the community has meant we’ve been supported by leading politicians such as the Hon. Liza Harvey (former Deputy Premier and Minister for Women’s Interests) and the Federal Minister for Women Senator the Hon. Michaelia Cash. The 2015 and 2016 functions raised much needed home starter packs for the women and children at the Path of Hope’s women’s shelter. These vital packs assist women to reintegrate into the community and regain a sense of much valued financial independence.
We support the Financial Planning Association’s annual Future 2 Foundation annual Melbourne Cup event, and grassroots sports with our major sponsorship of the Western Knights Junior Soccer Club.
We have a growing business and an expanding team. Our awards are a reflection of our dedication and commitment to our customer service and we are proud to be recognised by the Beddoes Institute with a Most Trusted Adviser designation.
The development of the individuals in our team is reflected in 3 Rising Star Adviser of the Year Awards coming from Empire since 2010, as well as a number of group awards. This is an environment where smart, energetic, committed people can turn their hard work into significant professional development.
We have a fabulous office in East Perth so we have easy access to the city and freeways north and south. The beautiful East Perth marina is just a short stroll away with several breakfast, lunch, coffee and bar options. The Yellow Cat runs into our area, as does the train to Claisebrook Station. Onsite, you’ll enjoy convenient end-of-journey facilities so if you decide to walk, run or cycle to work, you can enjoy a shower when you arrive.
At Empire, we like our people to know that they’re valued – after all, we couldn’t operate without good people. Working with us means that regardless of your role, you’ll be immersed in our client process. You’ll work flexibly with a strong team spirit, receive opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge with professional development, master classes, conferences and internal training (This varies depending on your role).
Socially, we work hard to make sure our team enjoys the benefits of our success. Our regular social functions include such diverse experiences as dinners with the team and their partners, day spas, champagne limo rides, Greek dancing, a pampering high tea and amazing Melbourne Cup and Christmas party functions.
“Empire was built with an emphasis on professionalism, technical expertise and outstanding customer service. I’m proud of the team we’ve brought together to serve our clients and look forward to welcoming you soon.”
– Raymond Pecotic, Managing Director
