Fluent Money Group, the UK’s largest second charge broker, is continuing to recruit personnel to its core second charge businesses as volumes of new business increase.
Fluent for Advisers, the company’s dedicated intermediary arm and Fluent Money have between them increased head count to 146, with 18 new team members spread between sales, case management and compliance roles starting since September 2017.
According to Chief Operating Officer, Tim Wheeldon, pictured, growing demand for secured loans from the intermediary community has been the most significant factor in the recruitment drive.
He said, “Our experience throughout the year has shown that the demand for a reliable whole of market second charge facility has undoubtedly been on the increase. Our growing relationships with the intermediary sector via network partnerships and with individual DA firms along with the hard work done by our sales teams have been largely responsible for Fluent’s success this year, while some of our competitors have struggled to get their message across as effectively.
We are also witnessing a greater appreciation of the use of second charge loans by the wider broker community and Fluent has been able to offer not only a great point of access for brokers but also maintained and improved its service to brokers.
We continue to look for able individuals to recruit. They don’t need second charge experience as we can provide comprehensive training. What we are looking for are people who have an outward going personality and enjoy communicating with customers.”
