Mortgage Adviser Vacancy Available
We have a vacancy for a mortgage adviser.
A career as a mortgage advisor is rewarding in many ways. You have the opportunity to help people at an important point in their lives, enjoying the satisfaction of your work being truly valued helping them to secure their home, whether that’s for a first-time buyer, an investor wanting an investment property to let out, second property or someone simply moving home. On top of that, you could discover what job satisfaction really feels like and earn a great salary that increases with experience.
Your role is to help clients find and apply for the right mortgage product to suit their personal circumstances and requirements. To do this you will need to get to find out about them and their finances so you can offer informed, suitable professional advice. You will have to be very hands on throughout the process to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible until completion and you will advise on the mortgages that are available from a range of companies including banks, building societies and specialist lenders.
We have a position available for full-time mortgage adviser working 35-40 hours per week, Monday to Friday. Your hours are normally 9am-5pm but there is flexibility over the hours and where you work, so you would not necessarily be expected to come into the office every day, or could work 8am-4pm, for example. If you are not already qualified and would like to become a mortgage adviser, you will hold a trainee position and first need to obtain the recognised qualification known as the ‘Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice’ or ‘CeMAP’. This is the benchmark qualification for the industry, recognised by employers and clients alike. If you join as a graduate trainee, we will fund your training materials, study leave and pay for your examination too. Your salary will depend on your current situation. If you are a graduate and need to be trained by the firm, your starting salary could be £24,000 increasing to £25,000 after successful completion of your 6-month probationary period.
If you are already a qualified, experienced mortgage adviser but will rely entirely on the firm for your client leads, your starting salary could be as much as £30,000. If you are already an experienced mortgage adviser or hold additional qualifications and may have existing clients to bring with you, your starting salary could be as high as £40,000. There are other benefits too, like generous holidays, a pension scheme and death in service life insurance of 4 times your basic salary.
With experience and time, you could earn £60-70,000 p.a. (including bonuses) in the future, depending on how successful you are.
If you become or are a successful as a mortgage adviser and wish to progress to become a fully qualified financial adviser, that is also something the firm will help you with, as our goal is for all our financial advisers to become Chartered Financial Planners. The role would obviously expand and so too would your earnings potential.
Finally, and probably obviously, you will have a good level of English, Maths and be highly computer and internet literate.
