VACANCIES

REGISTER TO HEAR ABOUT NEW JOBS AT CONNECT
We are currently recruiting Mortgage Advisers nationally

We are looking to appoint mortgage and protection advisers to look after our new client enquiries. We require additional advisers experienced in residential mortgages, buy to let mortgages, and protection plans to help service the enquiries.

We have opportunities for advisers to work with clients generated via our marketing, clients generated via our introducers of business or clients from our relationship with a national chain of Estate and Letting Agents. Suitable applicants could be allocated a branch in their locality whilst still having support from the Connect team centrally to grow and develop their mortgage sales. 

The role opportunities are mainly self-employed; however, there are some employed vacancies. Working hours are flexible, and opportunities exist to work either from a branch or to work from home. Experience is required, with a proven track record.

Successful candidates will be receiving regular leads and representing the Connect Mortgages brand. They will need to have strong skills in communication, analytical abilities, computer skills, the ability to build relationships and work as part of the team.

Connect Mortgage Advisers benefit from a full support package. This includes leads, an in-house dedicated marketing team, dedicated mortgage administrators who look after all application submitting and processing, and a robust compliance and training programme. Our goal is to enable each adviser to develop their full potential.

Employed packages come with a basic salary plus commission and pension; self-employed packages come with greater flexibility, a higher earnings potential plus initial financial support if needed. 

For interested candidates with less experience, there may be an alternative opportunity via our Network. Our Network operates an Academy that helps advisers who are qualified, but not experienced, to develop the essential lender knowledge and sales skills and run their own mortgage businesses. 

Connect Mortgage Advisers take pride in doing the best for our clients. We do this by having the widest possible lender panel, over 150 lenders, a bespoke training and knowledge accreditation plan for our advisers and dedicated teams to provide un-paralleled adviser support.

Our advisers can offer advice on all areas of the market, including residential, buy to let, commercial, bridging, secured loans, protection and equity release subject to qualification and experience. 

We are a dynamic company that has built strong lender relationships. We are Key Account Partners and Smartr Refer Partners for Legal and General Mortgage Club, thus benefiting from exclusive mortgage deals and client referrals from other advisers. We also have exclusive distribution arrangements with many lenders enabling us to offer preferential deals and service for our clients and enhanced terms for our advisers. 

Connect IFA Ltd, trading as Connect Mortgages and Connect for Intermediaries, are an established company that has been trading for over 20 years. Please apply now to be part of our exciting next phase of growth.
