Chesterfield-based mortgage advice firm Mortgage 1st has continued its growth plans with the recruitment of two new Mortgage Advisers, despite huge setbacks and disruption to both the financial services industry and the housing market due to COVID-19.
Two new advisers have just completed their ‘virtual’ induction while a further three new Advisers have recently accepted a position at Mortgage 1st. Once their applications are complete the firm’s Adviser head count will reach 20 by the end of the year.
Mortgage 1st was established in 2008 by Jon Stones at his dining table. As well as the Chesterfield based head office team, over half of the advisers work remotely and are based all over the UK.
Lisa Stones, HR & Marketing Director at Mortgage 1st, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming two new faces to the team who bring years of experience with them. Continued growth is a huge part of our company vision and even though we have had to adapt quickly, like all businesses have, during the past few months this hasn’t stopped us, we’ve just become more virtual!”
