They have a number of tie-ins with media outlets, including national newspapers and magazines, whilst also being the equity release specialist of choice for many IFA/financial planning practices. They have also secured a lucrative relationship with one of the UK’s largest financial services organisations to provide specialist equity release advice to their clients.
This means that the successful applicants will be extremely busy and have all the resources necessary to earn excellent levels of bonus. The company itself expect their advisers to earn c£40,000 - £50,000 although top performers do earn more.
In relation to background applicants will have financial services experience in a customer facing capacity, such as working for a bank/building society or brokerage (IFA or mortgage). Individuals must also be used to working to target in a compliant fashion and hold a relevant mortgage exam (e.g. MAQ or CeMAP).
