About Us

Probate Specialist

Full-time | London, UK (Hybrid) | Competitive

Who we are

Guardian Angel was founded in 2017 after our founder Sam lost his Mum suddenly in a road accident.

Dealing with grief is tough enough without all of the other stuff that comes with it - from planning a funeral, to handling probate and closing accounts.

Now our mission is to use technology and our personal experience to make sure that planning for and through death isn’t any tougher than it needs to be.

In December 2022 we joined the Octopus Group, who share our values and will enable us to help 1,000,000 people and their families in the next 5 years.

  • be experienced in running a Wills and Probate client caseload;
  • have excellent technical and communication skills;

  • be collaborative, creative and an effective communicator.

The ideal candidate will hold a STEP qualification, but this is not essential.
