Spicerhaart Corporate Sales appoints first in-house mortgage adviser

Having completed Just Mortgage’s six-week academy programme, 27-year old Lauren Cunningham (pictured) has become Spicerhaart’s first in-house mortgage broker.

With more than eight years’ experience in financial services, Cunningham makes the move after having worked at Paymentshield as a key accounts support manager. She will be based in Blackpool.

Commenting on her new role, Cunngingham says: “[I] have always been hugely impressed by them [Spicerhaart] as a business.  One day I was talking to Anthony [Lark, Just Mortgages managing director] about how I’d always wanted to be a mortgage broker and he said, ‘well why aren’t you then’ and that was the spur I needed.”

Spicerhaart corporate sales managing director Mark Pilling adds: “By having our own in-house broker, we are able to offer a comprehensive service, including legals, which will make the whole process quicker and more efficient for everyone involved.”
