Vicky is a highly qualified compliance professional, holding Advance Financial Planning Certificate and the designation Chartered Financial Planner.

Vicky’s favourite part of the job is the team, they are a great bunch of people who make being in the office not feel like work.


Vicky has two cocker spaniels Tigs & Lily who are her priority now her children are grown and have left home, whenever it’s possible they come to the office. Vicky is the membership officer for the PFS Manchester region committee, and gets actively involved with many of the working groups within the professional body the APCC.

Outside of work Vicky enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and loves to travel, ticking a new place off the bucket list each year.

In the UK, Vicky enjoys walking, trying to hunt out a new local walk every weekend to ensure the spaniels have new places to explore.

If I could be any fictional character, I would be

The one suggested by Karl Pilkington in An Idiot Abroad, Bullsh** Man! Who calls ppl out when they are talking rubbish.

If I could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, I would win a medal in

Stroking my pets, I always seem to have one on my lap or at the side of me, and I just can’t help but stroke them, I do it unconsciously.
