The news follows an increase in demand for equity release advice through the firm, with the group stating that sales targets for 2007 are on-track to be some 20 per cent ahead of 2006.
Advisers will have the choice to work from home or at Key’s Preston-based offices, with positions available for those who are FPC and CeMAP (or equivalent) qualified and can demonstrate a successful track record as well as trainee advisers with strong telephone based customer service and/or sales experience.
The support roles will include customer contact and service specialists to work with, and provide support for, the expanding adviser team, proactively managing cases through to completion and post completion services.
Key Retirement Solutions business development director Dean Mirfin says: “This is an exciting growth time for the equity release market and we are expanding our adviser force to keep pace with the growing demand for independent advice that we have seen. More and more people are seeing the benefit of releasing the cash locked in their home to enjoy now, but seeking specialist advice is key. During a time of rapid growth, finding the best possible candidates who can provide the highest quality equity release advice is our top priority.”
