The new staff joined both new and existing firms, bringing the total number of Openwork advisers to 3,885.
At the same time, 68 new mortgage firms joined the group.
John Cupis, mortgage director (pictured) said: “These historic results are testament to our strong proposition and support for firms wanting to grow or diversify their client offering.
“We established ‘Route to Wealth’ as a bespoke upskilling programme last year for mortgage firms wanting to broaden into pensions and investments.
“It is available to new firms and some have taken it up within a few months of joining.”
Stephen Wildgoose, Openwork’s recruitment and growth director for mortgages and protection added: “I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved in the past 12 months.
“It signifies a strong endorsement from advisers who choose to develop their careers with Openwork.
“We are increasingly recognised in the industry for being a profitable, growing, supportive and positive partner, providing outstanding services for professional advisers in the UK.”
