Just Mortgages is stating that the success of its recruitment drive during the first half of this year means that it has moved past the 600 mark when it comes to mortgage advisors.
This number includes advisors working within the self-employed and employed divisions of the company, with the current total number across the two being 618. Just Mortgages has set a target of having 1,500 advisors working for it within the next five years and it is currently on track to hit that figure.
These 1,500 advisors will be made up of 1,000 who are self-employed, 425 who are salaried employees and 75 working as wealth advisors. This is part of its stated desire to reach the level of the country’s biggest broker companies. It hopes both to bring in advisors who are already working in the sector, and also to train new ones via its academy.
Speaking to Mortgage Strategy about its latest advisor numbers, the National Operations Director for Just Mortgages, John Phillips, said that its team of recruiters were keeping it on course each month. He then went on to say:
“Once brokers are qualified that is very much the beginning of the journey with us, not the end. Their success is our success, and it is our job to provide brokers with the tools they need to deliver the best possible service to their clients.”
Working with a major company like this after getting a CeMAP mortgage advisor qualification can look like an attractive career path for many people.
