As a growing number of Australians face uncertain futures, Aussie’s new recruitment drive is offering opportunities for a new professional path.

COVID-19 lockdowns are giving Australians a chance to re-assess their professional futures, and that has seen Aussie’s Find Your Business Happiness recruitment campaign attract plenty of attention – for all the right reasons.

Launched in May 2020, Aussie’s bold new recruitment drive aims to add 200 brokers to the network in 2020 and grow its retail store presence to 300 Australia-wide by 2023.

It may be early days, but all the signs point to overwhelming market interest. Mr Brad Cramb, General Manager, Distribution at Aussie, says, “Within the first few months of announcing our recruitment drive we had received close to 1000 new enquiries and our newest recruits are already completing our industry leading learning and development program.”

He added, “The Aussie brand is not standing still amid COVID-19, we are continuing to push boundaries, evolve and enhance our offering to both brokers and customers’.

Valuable support for new brokers

A leading factor behind the campaign’s success is Aussie’s flexible business model, which allows new brokers to pursue a number of pathways – from mobile broking through to store ownership.

“This is a key aspect of Aussie’s success,” says Mr Cramb. “We are seeing real depth of talent across our recruits – including applicants that do not come from mortgage broking backgrounds. It is important to offer pathways to success that meet the needs and goals of different personalities.”

A financial head start

Aussie is demonstrating its commitment to new brokers by extending a financial helping hand. A start-up incentive of $6,000* is available to help new brokers transition into their own business.

After successful completion of Aussie’s training program, which has transitioned to a virtual environment during COVID-19, Mr Cramb says, “Our new brokers will be qualified for a Certificate IV in Mortgage Broking and from there, can commence their full Diploma in Mortgage Broking over a 12-month period.”

The quality of training and mentoring offered By Aussie is proving to be another point of difference.

Mr Cramb explains, “Aussie brokers run their own business, but they are never operating ‘alone’. Our industry-leading training, support, and mentoring doesn’t just help new recruits get their businesses up and running sooner – our support is ongoing, and this gives our brokers continual access to expert support.”

An award-winning brand

The success of Aussie’s latest recruit campaign is being further supported by major wins in The Adviser’s 2020 Australian Broking Awards.

Aussie took out the coveted national title of Major Brokerage of the Year – Franchise, as well as the 2020 Marketing Campaign of the Year.

“It’s incredibly exciting to win these awards,” explains Mr Cramb. “It also gives Australians thinking about joining the mortgage broking industry, the reassurance that Aussie has developed an award-winning formula that can help give their broking business a valuable head start.”
