Just Mortgages expands team

Just Mortgages has doubled its number of area directors to 22.

The company expanded its team to support its growing numbers in the self-employed division, which recently hit 400 brokers.

The larger team means directors — who are generally responsible for approximately 30 self-employed brokers — will have smaller groups and thus spend more time with each intermediary.

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 (pictured above), 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.”
