"We’ve recently expanded our operations in Wales and Scotland, and brought in a number of experienced area directors to support in these areas."
The firm says 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. 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.
Ben Allkins, head of mortgages and protection for the Just Mortgages self-employed division, said: “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.”
