Mortgage Advice is an excellent career option and is highly sought out due to all the great opportunities and benefits. Mortgage advice is consistently a stable career path with healthy earning potential and progression opportunities. Here is why you should consider a career as a Mortgage Advisor:
A study by You gov found that 76% of young Brits aspire to own a home one day. Home ownership is perhaps the biggest financial decision that many of us will make in our lifetimes. House purchases are seen by many as a huge achievement. To be a part of making these dreams a reality for a household, can be incredibly fulfilling.
Mortgage Advisor Earning Potential
As a Mortgage Advisor your income will depend on a number of factors, one of them being whether you are self-employed or employed. Self-employed advisors will not earn a salary but will typically earn from their commissions. This may sound daunting, but in self employed roles the commission splits are often very generous and there is no limit to what you will earn. For employed Mortgage Advisors, the salary is often healthy with bonuses on top of this making it very attractive as a proposition. However it should be noted that the splits for employed Advisors will be not as high in comparison to a self-employed position. Here at Premier Jobs UK, we have found that the average Mortgage Advisor salary is typically £25,000 – £35,000 (excluding commission and OTE).
Job Stability as a Mortgage Advisor
There are definitely peaks and troughs when it comes to the mortgage industry, depending on economic events and circumstances. As an Advisor, you will definitely see these throughout your career. However, people always need houses and as long as this rings true there will also be a need for Mortgage Advisors.
Flexibility as a Mortgage Advisor
Many Mortgage Advisors work on a self-employed basis, which can offer greater flexibility. As a self-employed Advisor, office commutes will be a thing of the past. Giving you more time and freedom for your personal life. Whilst self-employed advisors still sometimes take face to face appointments, virtual appointments are becoming increasingly common. This means that you will have the ability to work from your desired space.

There are also Senior Mortgage Advisor positions that experienced and knowledgeable Advisors can eventually progress to. Here at Premier Jobs UK, we also often see Mortgage Advisors embarking onto financial advice or equity release later on in their careers.
