Former apprentice Charlie Stack has been appointed as business development manager for the Midlands.
Having joined The Mortgage Lender 12-months ago, Stack’s potential inspired the firm to create an apprenticeship programme to give him the training, practical experience and skills required of a business development manager.
Peter Beaumont, deputy chief executive at The Mortgage Lender said: “Charlie impressed us. It’s the first time we’ve taken on an apprentice in the sales team, but we’d do it again.
“The truth is you can teach anyone the main principles of working in the mortgage industry, but you can’t teach someone the right attitude of a good business development manager. Charlie is a natural business development manager and he’s thriving.”
In addition to passing The Mortgage Lender’s intensive apprentice programme, the 22-year old is studying towards a CeMAP accreditation to become a qualified UK mortgage advisor.
Stack adds: “I’m very appreciative of the opportunity The Mortgage Lender has given me and even more so that they’ve invested in my career development by offering me the role of business development manager.
“The Mortgage Lender is an exciting, forward-thinking business and I’m proud to be part of it.”
The Mortgage Lender’s products cater for a wide range of borrowers including employed, self-employed, those with impaired credit and lending into retirement.
