Just Mortgages offers self-employed career path for brokers
Just Mortgages is set to launch a division which will support brokers who want to advance their careers by moving from employed intermediaries to self-employed business owners.

The team will be headed up by Carl Parker, ex-national financial services director for Countrywide, and will be offered to brokers from 6 March.

Brokers will be appointed representatives of Openwork, as will Just Mortgages’ employed brokers once the transition from Legal and General has completed.

Self-employed intermediaries will receive leads, training and compliance support and procuration fee deals. Parker’s team will show brokers how to set up their own businesses and build relationships with introducers, estate agents and solicitors.

Just Mortgages’ objective is to have more than 100 broker firms signed up with the division in the first two years.

John Phillips, group operations director of Spicerhaart and Just Mortgages, said: “Often when someone has worked as an employed mortgage broker for some time it is natural that they look for new opportunities and this new division provides them with the opportunity to move on without the need to leave the Spicer Haart group.”
