"Talent development is an exciting part of our business and in a fast-moving tech world with new trends emerging, our younger team can upskill us, too."
Midlands Asset Finance has employed five new members of staff, all under the age of 23, as part of a drive to 'build the next generation of finance brokers'.
University graduates Sam Greasley, Harry Krikken, Charlie Hubble, Ryan Walker and Liam Delaney were all hired this month as the broker continues its talent development scheme to help boost its national coverage.
Job roles within the group vary as, Harry, Charlie and Liam, who are all 21 years-old, become trainee relationship managers, whilst Ryan, 22, moves into the marketing team as a marketing executive.
The youngest of the group, Sam, is 18 years-old and is completing an apprenticeship in business administration as he carries out his role as a sales co-ordinator.
The five new starters take the total headcount of MAF to 27, meaning the business has more than doubled in size in the last 24 months.
MAF director, Sue Chapman, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to recruit such a bright group of young people in the business and to use our skills across the team to train, coach and develop them.
“Talent development is an exciting part of our business and in a fast-moving tech world with new trends emerging, our younger team can upskill us, too.”
Director of Business Development, Dave Chapman, added: “With many banks moving their smaller customers towards their call centre approach, we have made a conscious effort to go the opposite way.
“We want to put more people on the ground to ensure that companies, no matter what size, are looked after by people who take time to get to know their business.
“This group of youngsters is just part of our ongoing process of talent development as we continue to grow.”
