About AJ Bell

AJ Bell are one of the UK’s largest providers of online investment platforms and stockbroker services.

Operating out of its headquarters in Manchester, the company aims to provide award-winning investment products, backed up with excellent service and online functionality at a low cost.

With more than £39.8 billion in assets under its management as of 2018, AJ Bell strive to follow the following core values: to continually make sure their products and services are among the best available; to use as little industry jargon as possible; and to put their customers’ best interests at heart - always.

The company also puts significant effort into ensuring its 700+ staff are as happy and engaged as possible, through recognition schemes, Q&As with senior management, environmental and charitable initiatives, and much more.

My Manager
My Manager
New and existing managers receive one-to-one coaching, in addition to adhoc training sessions covering subjects such as engagement, performance reviews and difficult conversations. The company also runs a successful mentoring programme for managers.
In the heart of the company’s new Manchester headquarters is the AJ Bell Gym, dedicated to the health and wellbeing of staff, complete with personal trainers on hand and top-of-the-range facilities. Employees in other offices don’t miss out, though - they get free memberships to their local gyms.

On the last Friday of every month payday drinks are held in their offices, where a free bar is provided so that staff can unwind after work and meet colleagues from teams across the business.
