What our team say

Mark Hansard, Senior Adviser

I joined First Financial as I wanted a career, not just a job, and I believed First Financial could offer that. I have now been here for 10 years.

I started off as an Administrator, learning the industry inside out. I then progressed to Adviser, and I am now a Senior Adviser. It’s really rewarding getting to make sure my clients are getting the best deal on their house purchase and, importantly, ensuring they are fully covered with the correct Life Cover and Family Protection.


What our team say

Gavin Pearse, Director

I joined First Financial Intermediaries as an adviser with absolutely no experience. I needed to learn the processes from scratch and, fortunately, the company saw potential in me.

They provided a nurturing and supportive environment to learn and helped train me to become the adviser I am today. That support has provided me with the guidance to progress from a Trainee Mortgage Adviser, brand new to the industry, to Director, helping to shape the future of First Financial. I made that leap in a mere six years – I couldn’t have done it without their support and encouragement.
