Afforablemortgages.co.uk launches recruitment drive

Affordablemortgages.co.uk has launched its self-employed broker offering.

The company based in Yorkshire is keen to expand its operations by recruiting quality mortgage advisers nationwide.

David Farrell, managing director, says: “We pay brokers 80% of all the commission they generate, it’s fair to say probably the best commission deal in the marketplace.

“All the advisers are self-employed and work in an industry that often demands people to work unsociable hours, so why shouldn’t the brokers get the lion’s share of the cake?

“We don’t go in for setting minimum turnovers, tiering commission layers or capping commissions – why would a company want to stop a top quality adviser in full flight is beyond me.

“Equally we are happy to work with those advisers that might only do a few mortgages a month, or those that work in estate agents that want to spread their wings.

“With a large panel of over 70 lenders together with a packaging panel of 12, the company is poised to take the market by storm.”
