Just Mortgages receives 750 applications for broker academy

Just Mortgages has announced that it has received more than 750 applications for its broker academy.

The firm suggested the high number of applicants is a result of an “incredibly busy mortgage market”, combined with an increase in those looking to change careers.

Just Mortgages had reported record demand in September and October as thousands of potential homebuyers have looked to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday.

This year, the broker firm also indicated there has been applicants from a “massive variety” of backgrounds – from those with experience in finance or graduates from university, to estate agents and taxi drivers.

Successful candidates to the Just Mortgages broker academy will start five weeks of intensive training in January.

“With the rise in unemployment, we are seeing vast amounts of people looking to train as a broker from all walks of life,” said Just Mortgages group operations director, John Phillips.

“We are keen to invest in the future of the mortgage market and expand the pool of talent coming in. Therefore, those who come through our academy will be supported with all the training and mentoring they need to succeed as a mortgage broker.

“It’s great to see such a variety of candidates looking to become mortgage brokers, the housing market has remained robust throughout the pandemic and the amount of people looking to join the industry reflects this.”
