Devere Group's reply to:
Devere Group - Jobs/Employment - DO NOT WORK HERE.
Having received a call from one of their lovely recruitment consultants, I was initially taken back by the offer - as you would be if vast amounts of money were presented to you as a salary. My very first challenge was my complete and utter lack of experience in the finance sector which was remedied by the fact that all training would be provided. Anyway, having had a lengthy talk with the consultant I agree to attend the meeting which seems to generally be held in London on Friday at the T4 Hilton meeting facilities. DO NOT GO - WASTE OF TIME AND FUEL!
So of I went, wasting my time and fuel, to this lovely presentation - oh - by the way....make sure you turn up on time....they lock the doors at 1pm...You are 'greeted' by the glum face of a recruitment consultant named Liam - apparently he helped with the setup of this ponzi scam :)
The charismatic presenter and head of training, Andy (that charismatic term will probably give him some sort of ego boost), gave a rather slick presentation which first of all covered sites like this and put to bed any negative online feedback. Sure - I am writing on experience of this process up till the point I really researched this company including talking to some very reputable financial advisors from other companies working in the same regions and high net individuals I know in the Middle East who have been "pestered" by Devere! They have all advised I stay clear - and in honest opinions too!
Anyhoo - so you want to know about PAY...MOOHLA.....WONGA! Welllll the first slide is on QROPS - pension transfers (I am NOT a professional at this - just base knowledge)....We were advised a single transfer could gain as much as £12-15k in Commissions as an International Finance Advisor (IFA - the role they offer you)....OH WAIT....remember your 'PA' or coordinators? They get 20% of that and any other commission you make...that's right - you pay them (I swear this used to be called a pyramid scheme)...! BUT really - your 'bread and butter is RSP's' (quote: Andy, head of training), which typically gain you a commission in the region of £3,000 (remember to deduct that 20%)!
So WHAT is my pay?....Answer....NOTHING! ZERO! ZILCH! NADA.....Just what you earn in commissions through lying and having no integrity with the way in which you use a clients money. We were told by Andy to plan to have about 6-8 weeks of living expenses (yup...your accommodation, flights, food etc)...They do not cover flights at all - but for your training...they will cover your stay for 5 nights at a Hilton in Malta...but you have to pay for flights....but that sounds sweet right?
Anyhoo - digressing - waste no time on this. DON"T even entertain it. They are simply dangling carrots in front of your eyes - are you a donkey? If so...please APPLY :D
Watch out Polish investors - they seem to want to move into this market hard and fast....You will only be muddying your name, integrity and finances working here.
To put this all into a final shot perspective - I was very happily offered a job today in the middle east, in my area of expertise with a company that has turned over a respectable $723 million USD in its 15 year history...ooooh not as grand as the £9Billion that DeVere have right?
Welllll.....at least they are paying me to fly business class to Dubai, providing me with 3 return tickets a year to london, 28 days holiday, a healthy basic with commissions, accommodation, food for 3 months and wait for it......a driver (until I select the company car I wish to choose) :O
Now THAT's how a company treats its employees and runs with good morales, values and integrity....
PEACE OUT DeVere....This is one fish that cottoned on to your ponzi - look forward to the cut n paste standard BS you post as a reponse.... :)
