Just Mortgages is recruiting for its broker academy again following the success of its first round of training last month.

The broker is expecting the next academy to be oversubscribed after its first academy received 750 applications for eight places.

The next round of training is set to begin in April and will be the second of three sessions taking place this year.

Applicants are required to have completed their CeMAP 1 and have some knowledge of the mortgage industry.

Just Mortgages said this would include those who have previously worked in the mortgage industry, estate agents and those with a background in banking.

The broker will provide training on soft skills and lead generation, as well as preparing recruits for exams.

Rodney Sloan, head of training for Just Mortgages, said: “There has never been a better time to be a broker. While the economy has struggled, the housing market has continued to be incredibly robust.

“Despite the virtual circumstances our system allows those in the academy to learn whenever and wherever they are, and they will still receive all the support they need to become expert brokers."

Just Mortgages said the academy training formed part of its growth plans, as it aims to double its broker headcount to 1,000 by 2023/24.

Sloan added: “It is a source of massive pride that we support new blood coming into the mortgage industry through our academy. This is something we will continue to do and this will support our aim to double in size in the next few years.”
