Just Mortgages self-employed advisers grow their own businesses

Just Mortgages’ self-employed division has seen several of its advisers expand their own businesses and take on new staff.

October was the best ever month for recruitment into the self-employed division, with 20 advisers joining the team.

There are now 230 brokers in the Just Mortgages self-employed division and Parker expects that to have reached 250 by the end of the year.

Carl Parker, director of Just Mortgages, said: “Brokers are self-employed and therefore in control of their own destiny.

“but they have a dedicated sales manager to help and support them. The fact that so many are now taking on new advisers into their business shows that this approach can really pay dividends.

“Brokers get the backup they need, including help with advertising and recruiting for new staff, but can still get the satisfaction and sense of achievement that comes from growing your own business. It’s great to be able to help make this happen.”

Significantly, businesses within the self-employed division are now themselves starting to expand, with 15 firms taking on new staff in recent months.

Angel & Allsop Financial Services in south-east Kent has recruited two additional brokers into its all-female team, with plans for further expansion in coming years.

The Mortgage Branch, based in Cheltenham is set to take on its sixth broker in December, with Just Mortgages providing support in the recruitment process.
