Mortgage & Protection Adviser
Having worked in financial services for pretty much my entire career, I have gathered immense knowledge of lenders' criteria and underwriting, as well as a high-level understanding of a broad range of financial products.

Industry Details

  • Years in the Industry: I have been in the financial industry since 2001. I have been CeMAP qualified since 2016.
  • Specialisations: Mortgage Lenders Criteria, Complex Situations, and Mortgages for Professionals.
  • Certifications: Certificate in Mortgage Advice & Practice (CeMAP)

Professional Experience

  • Current Role:

    Working for YesCanDo has been the best decision I ever made. The supportive environment and steady stream of new enquiries many from existing client referrals, make the role both exciting and rewarding. I appreciate that part of the job of selling services to new customers is already done, thanks to the company’s outstanding reputation for 5-star rated service and fee-free approach. The fast-paced environment at YesCanDo, combined with the expectation of treating all clients with utmost care and attention, aligns perfectly with my commitment to exceeding clients’ expectations. Even though I’ve been part of YesCanDo since 2020, and since I joined I’ve found YesCanDo to be the best mortgage operation I’ve ever worked in.
