For teachers, benefits include £100 cashback for those part of the National Education Union, and the option to move into the property two months before starting a new teaching job.

TMA senior product and business manager Rob McCoy says: “[This] reiterates our ambition to cater for an increasingly diverse pool of borrowers. We want to ensure that all of our advisers can offer the perfect mortgage solution no matter the background or profession of their client.”
