A franchise brokerage has announced a major recruitment drive to add 200 more brokers to its network.

Aussie Home Loans has launched a recruitment campaign that the franchise brokerage says aims to add 200 brokers to its network over the next year.

"We are aggressively expanding our team of mobile brokers and are looking for more franchisees for Aussie stores," Aussie executive chairman John Symond said.

Symond argued that the franchise network provided an attractive proposition for brokers.

"We have a competitive remuneration structure for Aussie mortgage brokers and provide them with attractive commissions. On top of that, Aussie offers award-winning development and training and a range of flexible business opportunities designed to reward our business owners and brokers directly for the effort invested. They’re also supported through accredited and free mentoring so they can build better businesses and write more loans,” he said.

The company grew its retail channel by 17% last year to 451 loan writers, while increasing its number of franchise stores by 10 to 160. Aussie mobile brokers saw a 14% increase to 438.
