It now sets its sight towards its aim of 1,500 brokers in five years
Broker firm Just Mortgages has hit the 600-broker milestone with a raft of new brokers joining its employed and self-employed divisions.
The company announced this week that it now has 618 brokers and is on target to reach its goal of 1,500 brokers by 2027, comprised of 1,000 self-employed brokers, 425 employed and 75 wealth advisers.
Just Mortgages aims to become one of the largest mortgage broker firms in the UK by attracting not only brokers who are already in the industry, but new ones entering the financial services industry.
The company expects that most of these new professionals will come through its academy initiative.
It also recently launched a new academy program, an enhanced digital marketing support package, and will soon be announcing geographical expansion – all of which are designed to attract and support the brokers throughout their professional career.
Leading the expansion is John Phillips (pictured), national operations director at Just Mortgages.
“We have set ourselves some ambitious growth targets, but the recruitment team just deliver month after month, and we are thrilled to welcome new brokers to the Just Mortgages family,” Phillips said.
“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.”
Phillips noted that as rate rises and the cost-of-living begins to bite into household budgets over the next few years, the value of advice will increase substantially.
“We are going to play our part in ensuring that there is a strong and professional mortgage advice sector to help individuals and families with their borrowing and protection goals,” he concluded.
