The self-employed division also generated half a million pounds worth of income in March, 40% up on the previous month, and as a result has added Stuart Mitchell (pictured) as divisional sales director to work alongside Rob Perrin in London and the South of England.
Last month the broker network confirmed it had witnessed a six-fold increase in self-employed advisers in 12 months, growing from 13 brokers at the start of 2017 to 81 at the end of the year.
It has now reached 100 advisers and expects to pass 150 by next April – with plans to grow to 250 by 2020.
250 self-employed by 2020
Commenting on Mitchell’s appointment, Just Mortgages director of business partnerships Carl Parker said: “Stuart brings with him almost 30 years of financial services experience, and was most recently executive sales manager at Countrywide, so I am delighted to have him on board.”
And discussing the business’ plans he added: “Many brokers want to go self-employed but are worried about losing that support so we have created a model that allows them to work for themselves, but be part of a wider network of support and it is proving very popular.
“We have grown our broker numbers seven-fold in just 15 months and I plan to increase numbers by a further 50% by the end of this year, with a longer-term goal of having over 250 self-employed brokers by 2020.”
