Openwork poaches from Intrinsic to target protection and mortgage advisers

File image of people meeting in officeOpenwork is looking to hit 40 new protection and mortgage adviser appointments this month after poaching a new recruitment manager from rival network Intrinsic.

Michael Cauchois joins as regional recruitment manager for the south, having spent a year and a half as Intrinsic’s southern regional director and two years as a business development manager for network Sandringham.

If Openwork hits its 40-hire forecast, it says this will make the first six months of this year the best since 2007 and the second best since the network started when it comes to protection and mortgage advice.

Openwork reaches 3,900 total advisers last year after achieving what it describes as “achieving its best 12 months for recruitment of new mortgage firms and advisers in a decade”.

Cauchois says: “As a specialist financial services recruiter and adviser, with 38 years industry experience, I am looking forward to promoting Openwork’s quality proposition which will support business owners and advisers to run more successful, sustainable and profitable businesses.”

Recruitment and growth director Stephen Wildgoose says: “Our strong proposition and support for firms wanting to grow or diversify their client offering is proving very successful and the appointment of Michael will provide more support in growing our mortgage and protection network. He brings extensive expertise in recruitment and distribution as well as a high level of positivity and professionalism in line with Openwork values.”
