Just Mortgages is launching a new work from home option for experienced brokers.
The option is available for those who have at least two-years mortgage advising experience, and will increase flexibility for those who normally work in a Spicerhaart estate agency branch.
Following the successful implementation of video calls during the pandemic, the firm says this move will give brokers the option to continue the remote work they have been doing.
Brokers will still be provided with leads from the estate agency, and they will operate as they would in branch, connecting with the estate agency team via video calls and email.
Those normally based in a branch will still have the option to work from the office if they want to, but this new directive will give them the freedom to choose how they can best deliver for clients.
John Phillips, national operations director of Just Mortgages and Spicerhaart, comments: “For brokers who would like more flexibility to manage their own schedules, this decision will be music to their ears.”
“The pandemic has opened up a lot of eyes to the potential of working from home, and we’re really confident this will help our brokers to continue to deliver exceptional service.
“Work-life balance is crucial in these trying times, and adding the option for brokers to work where they want gives them the flexibility to interact with clients in the most effective manner.”
He adds: “Clients have also given really positive feedback about working with our brokers remotely, and ultimately, that is the most important thing for us.”
“There are those who will still want to return to the office, and some will want to conduct meetings in person, and we support the flexibility to decide. The key for us is to empower our brokers to choose the right option for them and the client.”
