Local success story as Derby’s Sort Ltd eyes further expansion


Derby based, Sort Ltd, which specialises in providing access to legal and surveying services to the financial services intermediary sector through its cutting edge online platform and has just launched its very own law firm, Sort Legal, is looking towards further expansion in 2018.

All this is a far cry from the tiny office in Etwall, where Sort Ltd was formed in 2009 after the four founding directors, all mortgage brokers, had become increasingly frustrated by the lack of conveyancing options.

The business started to take off as they launched the service online and by 2017, the business had outgrown its Etwall offices and a move was made to self contained offices at the Derby Conference Centre.

The move to the new offices then provided the extra space and perfect conditions for the launch of Sort Legal, Sort’s own in house law firm. As a result of the firm’s growth, Sort Legal is seeking new recruits to fill another ten vacancies.

Now with 48 members of staff, Sort Ltd is one of Derby’s fastest growing businesses and according to Chief Executive, Kevin Tunnicliffe, the future is looking very positive for Sort Ltd.

Kevin said: “We are keen to build on our success and with the market for specialist services to financial services professionals growing, Sort Ltd is keen to capitalise on the progress we have made to date. Our law firm, Sort Legal, is looking for new team members to help us in the next stage of the firm’s development and while previous experience is welcomed, what we are looking for are people who are keen to learn and be part of a team ethos.

“Sort Ltd will be launching into new areas over the next twelve months and we are always interested to hear from local people who feel they can match our ambition and are looking for a challenging and stimulating environment in which to work.”
