The Mortgage Group is to recruit 500 staff to its offices in Cornwall, the Midlands and the North of England. The move will see it double its workforce, with the new employees helping process applications, and man an expanding telesales operation. TMG currently writes over £450m of specialist mortgage business and aims to raise this to £1bn by the end of the year.
Kevin Williamson, TMG’s general manager in the South West, said: ‘Lenders in the high street may be experiencing a decline in interest among consumers for their range of products, but in our sector…there is significant demand for our specialist range of mortgages. To meet this demand, we will be doubling the size of our workforce over the next three months.’
