Business summary

Our mission is to ‘Redefine End-of-Life Planning’.

Our qualified estate planners help make sense of a whole range of legal and financial issues, creating a Will that makes sure our client’s wealth, where possible, goes exactly where they want it to. We’ll then set them up to record their plans in a secure online space – their own personal Kinvault® – which is easy and instant to update anytime and simple to share and execute when they die. With Kinherit our clients can be confident that when they die whatever they want to happen will happen – with no assets or information missed and without their family having to pay or do anything extra.

Our principal strategy is to find clients via professional introducers – in particular wealth managers and independent financial advisors.  A specialist’s job is to take a ‘lead’ (typically a higher net worth individual) and give an exceptional experience as part of setting up their Will and associated planning – with advice delivered via the telephone or video.

Role summary

This role suits talented law graduates having attained a high 2:1 or a first-class law degree, who have ambitions to use their knowledge gained at university, and quickly apply that knowledge to supporting clients directly. During their studies they had more than a passing interest in Equity & Trusts plus Land Law.

We take our Specialists natural talent and support them with attaining their Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) qualifications where they are quickly promoted to a Kinherit Estate Planner. The development does not stop there. Our Estate Planners are supported with their personal development from STEP Affiliate, on to STEP Associate through to full TEP, being promoted throughout the journey.

The day-to-day role of a Kinherit Specialist is to guide our clients through the process of establishing effective end of life plans, which protect beneficiaries from losing assets and their estate.  This is achieved through producing Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and other relevant documentation.

Role description

As a Kinherit, Specialist in End-of-Life planning your role is to analyse our clients estates to produce the necessary documentation and gain the information to support our full handover service.  This, in turn, protects our clients’ money on death, whilst also saving their executors time by removing any undue hassle.

Specialists are assigned Introducers (Third Party company or an individual) who pass potential clients to Kinherit.  This is the Account Management aspect of the role.  Specialists influence the volume and quality of clients from their Introducers, so it is crucial to build and maintain professional relationships.

As a Specialist you provide an advice led service, being an expert in all aspects of End-of-Life planning.  Often this results in additional documents being produced, such as Legal Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Business Trusts and Deeds of Severance.  Following on from this process, you support clients in our revolutionary handover service using our Kinvault.
