I'm a financial adviser...well at least for next few months before taking maternity leave. I may be help with general questions you may have.
Things to consider would be whether you are saving up for something specific, timeframe which you are investing, your current experience and how much risk you are comfortable taking with your money.
Other areas which an adviser can help with would be reviewing your personal insurance needs, and ensuring structure of your finances are tax effective.
I think one of the best ways to seek out an adviser is through a referral through friends or family. You want an adviser who will look out for your best interest and also someone who is a good personality fit.
