Just Mortgages has announced the recruitment of its 400th self-employed mortgage advisor, showing just how much it has grown in the five years since it was launched.
When the company was first started back in 2016, it only had three advisors working for it, but it has expanded rapidly since then. The sharpest growth has been during the past 12 months, despite the Covid-19 crisis, during which it has brought in a further 100 advisors to its self-employed division.
Those who sign up to work for the firm on that basis enjoy a range of benefits, including access to a training scheme that enables them to focus on specific subjects that they need further training in. These can be anything from mastering the techniques needed to persuade borrowers to buy protection to learning how they can best take their businesses forward.
The Just Mortgages self-employed division national director, Carl Parker, told Financial Reporter that it was precisely this sort of career development backing that enabled the company to secure the most talented advisors, and that self-employed advisors working for the company had freedom to do their own business while still enjoying guidance and support. He then went on to add that:
“Every broker is supported by the training team that provides expert insights, area and regional directors who are on hand to help with day-to-day advice, and a marketing team who help the brokers to bring in new business.”
Following CeMAP mortgage advisor training, many choose to join a bigger company on a self-employed basis.
