Yet-to-launch remortgage-only digital adviser Dynamo Mortgages is offering qualified advisers the chance to apply for a job by pitching a technology idea to improve the application and advice process and also win £2,000.

 

 

The mortgage adviser pitch night on 11 April, will be held at the firm’s offices at One Hammersmith Broadway in the Blenheim Chalcot building and offer brokers a 15 minute slot to explain their digital enhancement and apply for a job.

C.Vs and any Powerpoint slides can be submitted in advance by 5 April and the best idea will be incorporated into Dynamo’s working practices. On the night, presentations may be recorded and there will be time for questions from the audience.

The series of ads, which go live today on City a.m, Metro and the Evening Standard asking ‘Think the mortgage industry is due an upgrade?’ says advisers are not expected to be ‘suited and booted as talent is more important’.

Jenny Watts, chief operating officer at Dynamo, said: “With launch just around the corner, we are on the hunt to find the best and most innovative mortgage advisers to join the Dynamo family. We are rebuilding the mortgage process from scratch and we want committed and like minded mortgage advisers to join us and our mission.”

Watts said the firm decided to throw out the rule book when it comes to traditional recruitment practices.

“The candidate with the best idea will win £2,000 in cash plus the satisfaction of seeing their idea brought to fruition within Dynamo. All candidates who take part in Pitch will also be considered for one of 10 interview slots to secure a mortgage adviser role at Dynamo,” said Watts.

 

Digital startup

To apply, applicants need to visit www.dynamo.co.uk navigate to the careers tab and click on the role called ‘Mortgage Adviser Pitch Night‘.

Ex-Habito COO Jenny Watts joined Dynamo in February and the firm is a collaboration between property giant Countrywide and private equity ‘venture builder’ Blenheim Chalcot.

Watts exited startup Habito in October last year, two months after her promotion to COO.

Dan Cobley, former head of Google in the UK and Ireland and Dynamo chair has been building the Dynamo product, team and proposition, another self-styled digital disruptor.

The adviser offers ‘a better way to remortgage online’ and will launch imminently in ‘early 2018’.
