KRS to expand sales team

Key Retirement Solutions has revealed it is to expand its adviser workforce.

KRS is looking to increase sales by more than 20% over 2006 figures, and is looking to recruit a minimum of 50 advisers over the next 12 months, along with strengthening its support team.

The adviser positions can be home-based throughout the UK or based at KRS’ head office in Preston. Opportunities are available for FPC and CeMAP qualified advisers, who can demonstrate a successful track record, and trainee advisers with strong telephone-based customer service and/or sales experience.

The support roles will include customer contact and service specialists to work with, and provide support for, the expanding adviser team, proactively managing cases through to completion and post-completion services.

“More and more people are seeing the benefit of releasing the cash locked in their home to enjoy now, but seeking specialist advice is key. During a time of rapid growth, finding the best possible candidates who can provide the highest quality equity release advice is our top priority.”
