Just Mortgages has broken through the 600-broker milestone with a number of new brokers joining its employed and self-employed divisions.
The company has revealed that it now has 618 brokers and is on target to reach its goal of 1,500 brokers by 2027 which will be comprised of 1000 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 those brokers already in the industry but says that most of its growth will continue to come via its academy initiative which brings new people into the financial services industry.
The broker firm recently launched a new academy programme, an enhanced digital marketing support package and will soon be announcing geographical expansion, all of which are designed to attract and support brokers throughout their professional career.
John Phillips (pictured), national operations director at Just Mortgages, said: “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.
“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. Over the next few years as rate rises and cost of living begins to bite into household budgets, 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.”
