Vantage Finance continues to grow as one of the UK’s leading master brokers with four additions to its specialist team. The master broker is also supporting its staff to study for the Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP), as it looks to raise the bar for specialist distributors and provide ongoing professional development to the entire team.
Vantage Finance has appointed Zoe Brooks as Compliance Manager, with 5 years’ experience working in compliance in the mortgage and second mortgage market. Nicola Hinkley, an experienced commercial finance & mortgage broker, joins the team as an Underwriter and Sophie Pang and Mihaela Burlacu, an accounting and finance graduate and an office manager respectively, have both been appointed to join Vantage’s growing administration team.
All four new recruits will join the existing Vantage team as they study for the CeMAP, the premium mortgage qualification for the financial services industry.
Lucy Hodge, Director of Vantage, said:
“As we expand, our dedication to creating a sustainable industry remains at the forefront of everything we do. Our most recent hires reflect our efforts to source both highly qualified, professional candidates, as well as fresh young talent to support our industry for the future. We know the importance of cultivating tomorrow’s generation of brokers and some of our most successful managers joined us straight from education, which is why we are always on the look out for entry-level candidates.
“We also recognise the value professional qualifications bring to both the industry as a whole and our staff as individuals, especially given the recent move of consumer credit to the FCA. This is why we are sponsoring every member of the Vantage team to study for their CeMAP qualification. CeMAP is widely regarded as the mortgage industry benchmark and the team has made fantastic progress with the qualification, with a few members already completing all three modules. Every member of Vantage Finance has their next exam booked and our collective enthusiasm is testament to our on-going pursuit of the highest industry standards.”
