We are delighted to continue our apprenticeship programme with the arrival of our latest’s recruits, Jack Stillman and Joe Moore, who started their journey this week to becoming fully qualified Mortgage and Protection Advisers.

The programme which was started in 2012 as a direct result of the shortage of quality brokers, following the recession in 2008, has been a tremendous success. Over the past 5 years we have successfully recruited and trained 6 local young people who are now qualified advisers, all successfully helping people purchase their dream homes and save money on their mortgages.

The Apprenticeship which takes between 3 & 4 years starts with recruits spending 2 years in administration, liaising with lenders and providers, keeping clients updated and ensuring the mortgage and protection applications runs smoothly. The next stage is a move to “Trainee Adviser” working both in house and with the government approved Apprenticeship programme. During this time they will work senior adviser, meeting clients researching cases and taking the relevant exams required to become a fully qualified adviser.

We would like to wish Jack and Joe the very best as they embark on their Apprenticeship and feel confident that like our other graduates, they will be extremely successful
