Aussie’s game-changing recruitment drive is reaching fruition as the first new recruits prepare to hit the market
Aussie’s ‘Find Your Business Happiness’ recruitment campaign, launched in May 2020, is notching up some big milestones.
With goals to recruit 200 new mortgage brokers in 2020 and grow Aussie’s retail store presence to 300 nationally by 2023, more than 85 prospects had chosen a new professional path as an Aussie Broker by August alone. Currently 54 recruits are completing Aussie’s industry-leading Learning and Development Program, and recent weeks have seen Aussie celebrate the launch of its first round of 23 newly accredited brokers.
A 12-month structured learning program
The leading mortgage broking brand in Australia has always excelled at attracting new-to-industry brokers, backed by its commitment to nurture each recruit’s entrepreneurial spirit through a dedicated program of learning and development.
In fact, the first 12 months of a new Aussie Broker’s journey are clearly mapped out.
It all begins with completing a Cert IV in Mortgage Broking. That’s followed by three weeks of intense induction training. It’s a cleverly structured combination of theory and practical tips bought to life through role plays and problem-solving that address the sorts of scenarios that brokers will encounter in their own business. Despite Covid-19, the program hasn’t skipped a beat, readily transitioning to virtual learning.
The next phase is to receive lender accreditations, and after this, a new recruit is ready to launch their business. But the learning doesn’t stop there.
The remainder of that first year continues to build a new broker’s skills through dedicated sales coaching, Aussie’s Customer Experience and Responsible Lending Bootcamp, and the unique ‘Signature by Aussie’ program that matches training to each broker’s level of experience.
Throughout that critical 12-month period, new Aussie Brokers are supported by ongoing mentoring from a more experienced broker.
A choice of pathways
Along with a renowned program of learning and development, a key part of Aussie’s appeal is the choice of pathways available to new recruits.
Options include investing in an Aussie Retail Store, choosing to become a Store Broker – running a business within a franchisee’s Retail Store or the flexibility of mobile broking The different pathways ensure there is a business model available to suit a wide variety of lifestyles and personal goals.
Even better, until 31 December 2020, Aussie is offering a start-up incentive of $6,000* available to help new store brokers transition into their own business. To open a franchise, Aussie is offering a reduced franchise fee, – store fit out contribution and a competitive commission structure with a special offer for the first 12 months.
One of Aussie’s 23 newly accredited brokers – Gold Coast-based Sandy Siviour, opted to become a Store Broker, joining the team at Aussie Robina.
Having completed induction in June, Sandy describes the team behind Aussie’s Learning and Development Program as, “Highly skilled, very well trained, and they made me feel supported. I know they have my back – and still do. I’m continuing to learn, grow and evolve, and Aussie is always there to support me.”
