On 17 October 2017, Yes Mortgage Services Limited were presented with a Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award, (one of only 16 companies in the South West of England to receive the award.) The award was presented by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for the County of Dorset, Mr Angus Campbell at the Annual Awards Ceremony.
The Scheme recognises support given to the whole of the Armed Forces Community including reservists, veterans, wounded injured and sick, spouses and Cadet Force adult volunteers.
The award acknowledges Yes Mortgage Services Limited’s support to defence, including employing ex-defence personnel and military spouses in addition to supporting service, ex-service and civilian personnel to get on the property ladder, through mortgage and protection products.
Andrew Johnson, Managing Director, himself a veteran of 25 years said: “As a young business, we are very much about how we perform as a team and the ways in which we can support our clients. Our ethos, much like in the military, and everything that underpins that, is what makes us that little bit different. This can be as simple as our flexible working hours to fit in with our clients needs and the fact that we do not charge any additional broker fees.”
Having signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2016, the company has demonstrated their ongoing commitment and are seeking ways to develop this further.
Quote from Team Member: Darren Winspear CeMAP.
“After leaving The British Army, Yes Mortgage Services Limited gave me the opportunity to re-trade into the financial sector. The company is built around ex-forces and spouses working together to provide mortgage and protection products for all (both military and civilian personnel). Andy helped with the transition to civilian life and the alien worlds of networking and self-employment. The level of experience gained through the training provided and support network from other ex-forces personnel within Yes Mortgage Services has allowed me to exceed the expectations of people within the industry at my level. A great debt of gratitude is owed to Andy and his team.”
