Aggregator seeks young guns through internship drive

by Adam Smith22 Jan 2013


A challenger aggregator has launched a program it says will lure talented people to the mortgage industry.
Finsure's internship program selects potential brokers from related industries and offers them scholarships to gain their Cert IV, Diploma and MFAA accreditations. Broker recruits also undergo in-house training with the company's seasoned brokers over a period of six months. The company said its brokers will also receive training about the latest NCCP changes.
The program is set to intake its first candidates next month, and Finsure national business manager Adrian Lee said the internship would enable the aggregator to build a network of well-trained brokers.
"I’m excited by the quality of these young guns who will have fresh eyes capable of lifting the bar for the entire industry. The Finsure internship is the only program that genuinely targets real talent. For us, recruitment is not a volume game it’s a quality play," Lee said.

    They're dreaming. 50% of the current brokers settle less than 2 deals per month. Why would more be needed or even desired?

    oldBroker. the fact that 50% of current Brokers settle less than two applications per month is not relevant to the number of Brokers in the marketplace.

    Fresh faces are needed in the industry to keep it (the industry) alive. I think this is a good thing!
