We are looking for great people who we can sponsor and train to achieve the professionally recognised mortgage qualification, CeMAP. If you have that special something and have a proven sales record we would be delighted in helping you through your qualification.

So, what do our Mortgage Advisors actually do? 

  • Meet with lots of different clients and make sure they give them the best possible mortgage advice and protection (you will learn more about these as you develop your skills)
  • Work closely with our estate agency colleagues and help them maximise any new leads and opportunities
  • Build great relationships that mean customers come back to us time and time again
  • Work with our existing client base! Very often they are a great source of new and unexpected business
  • Liaise with lenders to make sure they keep up to date with new products (we have access to the whole of market which means we truly can personalise each deal)
  • Work closely with our Admin Support Team ensuring our cases are completed and FCA compliant

So, what is it like to work here? 

  • We work incredibly hard, so don’t be afraid of hard work and sometimes long days!
  • It will be demanding but rewarding at the same time – working well with your team means you support each other to achieve your customer’s goals
  • Yes, you will be targeted and assessed but this is because we want you to reach your full potential. A new career means lots of support and we want you to succeed every step of the way!
  • Often we run fun and innovative competitions (with rather nice rewards and treats!) so if you love a bit of competition this will be just down your street!
  • We do listen to our colleagues. Every year we ask our team mates what they really think about us in an independent staff survey. The good news is that again last December many of our scores have been over 90%!
  • We are not perfect but we are one big family all striving towards being the best we can be and working in the estate agency world is definitely fun!

So, what do I need?

  • To be people and customer focused
  • Bags of drive, motivation and passion to succeed
  • Focused on turning the “ordinary” into the “extraordinary” and not be afraid of hard work
  • To be able to drive, as there will be times later on in your career when you need to help out neighbouring offices and also attend regular sales meetings
  • And yes, you will be the type of person that would love seeing your customers’ eyes light up when you help them finance their perfect property!
