Fluent Money Group has increased its head count to 146 in a drive to keep up with demand.
The business has hired 18 members of staff since September in sales, case management and compliance.
Tim Wheeldon (pictured), chief operating officer at Fluent Money, said growing demand for secured loans from the intermediary community has been the most significant factor in the recruitment drive.
He said: “Our experience throughout the year has shown that the demand for a reliable whole of market second charge facility has undoubtedly been on the increase.
“Our growing relationships with the intermediary sector via network partnerships and with individual DA firms along with the hard work done by our sales teams have been largely responsible for Fluent’s success this year, while some of our competitors have struggled to get their message across as effectively.
“We continue to look for able individuals to recruit. They don’t need second charge experience as we can provide comprehensive training. What we are looking for are people who have an outward going personality and enjoy communicating with customers.”
