Midlands Asset Finance (MAF) has added a number of young staffers to its team, as the company seeks to bolster its broker ranks.
Five graduates have joined the company in roles within customer relationships and marketing.
Harry Krikken, Charlie Hubble and Liam Delaney have been recruited as trainee relationship managers. Ryan Walker has become marketing executive, while Sam Greasley has joined in as sales co-ordinator while he completes an apprenticeship in Business Administration.
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.”
Including the new hires, the team at MAF now includes 27 people. The company says it has more than doubled its workforce over the past 24 months.
