Just Mortgages doubles number of area directors
Leading broker firm, Just Mortgages has doubled its number of area directors from 11 at the start of 2021, to 22.
The rapid expansion has been essential to support the growing numbers in the self-employed team, which recently hit 400 brokers.
Each director is responsible for approximately thirty self-employed brokers, and by having smaller groups, means the director can spend more time with each broker.
Just Mortgages’ area directors are all highly experience sales managers, and therefore understand the pressures that advisers are under. Alongside providing professional advice, the area directors also work with the self-employed team to develop business plans and support them to hit their goals.
Having access to a number of area directors is the latest benefit for Just Mortgages’ self-employed brokers, who already receive unrivalled support, a comprehensive training programme, and expert marketing and lead-generation advice and content.
The offering is perfect for brokers who are looking for the independence that comes from being self-employed, but value expert advice and support.
Ben Allkins, head of mortgages and protection for the Just Mortgages self-employed division explained: “With the self-employed team expanding so quickly, it was essential we grew the number of area directors alongside. We’ve recently expanded our operations in Wales and Scotland, and brought in a number of experienced area directors to support in these areas.
“Our area directors are an invaluable resource for our self-employed team to tap into. They are all experienced brokers themselves, and can advise not just on the professional side of things, but also balancing your home life alongside being a broker.
“A growing number of our brokers are now looking to set up principal partnerships, and our area directors can support them, giving them advice on recruiting, and how to manage a team of people.
“With our ambitious plans for 2022, it will be essential that we continue expanding the area director team so they can continue to support our brokers to deliver best advice.”
