Apprenticeships launched for finance brokers

The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) has launched its first apprentice scheme.

Hitachi Capital Business Finance will partner with the NACFB to set up and run the programme. Apprentices will receive full training, as well as help with setting themselves up as a broker once they have completed the scheme.

Adam Tyler, the chief executive of the NACFB, explained to the press why the organisation had decided to set up the programme, stating:

“The average age of our commercial finance brokers is increasing and we need to invest in new talent for the future. The cost of training can be prohibitive, so being able to finance a talented individual is something we are proud to be able to offer.”

A panel that includes representatives from Hitachi Capital Business Finance and the NACFB will interview candidates. Those who are successful will have the cost of their training covered for twelve months. During the year, they will work for six months at Hitachi Capital Business Finance, with the other half spent with a commercial finance broker.

Increasingly, British firms are turning to asset finance brokers for help in securing the funds they need to grow their businesses, so it is no surprise that more need to be trained. At DJB, we provide several different kinds of solutions to secure capital, including equipment finance and asset leasing. Our team is very experienced, so please get in touch with us to learn how we can help you.
