Advantage gains Investors in People in record time

Advantage, the mortgage packager and branded lender, has become a major player in the sub prime and niche markets. The company has developed a comprehensive development programme which provides trainees with a thorough grounding in all aspects of mortgage processing, marketing and administration. New trainees – whether they are school leavers or university graduates - are committed to a year's training which involves spending time in every department

It was this ongoing dedication to training, which, with the help of Business Link Cheshire and Warrington's Workforce Development Advisor, Elaine Rogers, helped Advantage achieve IIP status so rapidly.

Simon Maudslay, co-founder and director said: "We can attribute our success to the high quality service we provide for our customers. Our competitive edge is a direct result of investing heavily in our people and our unique staff development and training programme. This is backed by our state-of-the-art IT systems, which are also produced in house. Securing Investors in People was a natural progression and we are delighted to have achieved this benchmark of quality.”
