MoneyQuest’s franchisees to benefit from brand new graduate program

MoneyQuest is looking to boost the ranks of its brokers with a fast track Mortgage Broking Graduate Program and that’s good news for franchisees who will employ successful applicants.

Last week, franchisees Scott Seng and Matthew Chik of MoneyQuest Balwyn were the first to welcome a graduate, Henry  Nguyen, into their business.

Scott said “We are very excited about bringing Henry on board. He has the right attitude and a thirst for knowledge which is very important to us.

“We were specifically looking for someone with little to no industry experience or existing habits, that we could train from scratch and shape into the finance specialist our business needs. We were keen to hire someone with drive and a willingness to commit time and energy to the business, and Henry ticks all those boxes.”

Scott believes franchisees will benefit from employing graduates.

“At my previous workplace, I saw first hand just how hard the grads worked. Their work ethic is incredible, as is their ability to apply their knowledge to real life scenarios. Matt and I are excited to teach Henry the ins and outs of our business and pass on some essential life skills as well. We look forward to watching him flourish.”

The Mortgage Broking Graduate Program offers industry-specific training, on-the-job experience, professional development sessions, networking opportunities, and mentorship.

It is a two-year immersive program with a 12-month probationary period and participants who complete the program will be deemed Level 5 employees under the Banking, Finance and Insurance Award 2020.

MoneyQuest boss, managing director Michael Russell, is pleased the business now has a structured professional development process.

“With many companies currently taking on less graduates as a result of Covid-19, it is heartening to know that  we are now able to provide bright young graduates with a clear pathway into our industry. Our program not only provides graduates with an opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s best brokers, but it also facilitates the recruitment and retention of quality people within our franchise network,” he said.
