Compliance Support Officer

Hazel joined Thornton Chartered Financial Planners in October 2015. Hazel grew up in Kent. After leaving school, Hazel attended Nottingham Trent University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Education (Hons). She moved to the Isle of Man in 1988, taking up a role with Barclays Bank and this is where she met her husband Chris. Hazel progressed through Barclays Bank, gaining valuable experience in banking before joining Lloyds Bank as a Financial Adviser in 1997. Hazel travelled extensively for a number of years seeing clients in Canada, America and South America before moving into training, compliance and risk based roles.

Hazel gained a Financial Planning Certificate in 1998 and upgraded this to a CII Level 4 Diploma in Financial Planning in 2012, which provides a solid grounding in the financial services market and in the provision of financial planning advice.

Hazel and Chris have a young son, Tomas who keeps them very active and the family enjoy the company of good friends on the Island, holidays abroad, cycling and frequent walks with their very lively Cocker Spaniel dog, Milo, who is always keen to go on his own adventures!

Hazel’s favourite place on the Island is Ballaugh, where the family like to go camping in the Summer months.
