It continues to be a buoyant market in the Wealth and Asset Management change space and our clients are increasingly relying on Simplify to support them in many different ways including; Automation, Off-Shoring, Streamlining, Regulatory Change, Process Optimisation, Programme Delivery and Assurance to name a few. We support these programmes with specialists in a variety of change disciplines such as; Business Analysis > Project/Programme Management > Test Execution > Test Management > Risk > Compliance > Business Readiness.

We continue to grow both our permanent team and network of trusted associates to reflect this ongoing and increasing demand. In 2022 we have worked with over 40 of our associates across various engagements. Our Associate Network is fundamental to our success and in particular, our ability to scale up and where required bring in specialist resources to help mobilise and deliver change at pace, in order to meet customer demand. We invest a lot of time growing our network, expanding into areas based on demand, relationship management, oversight of delivery and ensuring the people we work with reflect the values of Simplify as well as having the right skills and experience across Wealth, Asset Management and Transformation disciplines.

We recently interviewed a couple of our trusted associates and here’s what they said about working with Simplify:-

Shabana (Project Manager on a migration programme)

“The onboarding experience was seamless.  The laptop was sent to my house before my contract started.  I then had a video call with Matt who went through setting me up so I could begin work.  Matt is very professional, friendly and responsive.

I’m new to the associate pool but I like that I’m part of a group that can be proactively called upon should Simplify have a role in future that I could fulfil”

David (Business Analyst who we have worked with on multiple programmes)

“I’ve found Simplify (a consultancy firm) a lot more easy to deal with compared to agencies. Agencies really don’t seem to care and send blanket emails and if you reply you never get a further look in. Simplify keep in touch on a regular and personal basis which is so much more welcoming and makes you feel like you’re part of something and that work will be forthcoming.

It’s good to know you’re in a group of people looking to provide a great service. Can get to build a good rapport with other associates and share experiences and possibly even jobs!

We are always keen to connect with practitioners in Transformational Change who have experience within Wealth (Life, Pensions & Investments) or Asset Management. If you are interested in joining our Associate Network then please get in touch. This isn’t about one off opportunities for us this is about building and maintaining a long term business relationship whereby we work together periodically on relevant engagements. If this sounds like something you would be interested in then we would love to hear from you.
