Expanding North East based mortgage services firm BH Mortgages has announced the appointment of its newest member of staff amid significant growth for the firm.

BH Mortgages was launched two years ago as part of the BH Group of companies, which also includes leading property agency Bradley Hall. The firm, which offers mortgage advice, protection and insurance, has taken on its first apprentice to support growing operations across the North East.

Niamh Taylor, 18, from Newcastle, joins the company as case and business administrator.

BH Mortgages director, Lewis Chambers, said: “The success over the past two years of BH Mortgages has been more than I could have hoped for. The team has grown and we have been able to supply hundreds of people with mortgages on a national scale.

“Niamh was a very enthusiastic and intelligent candidate and we are delighted to welcome her to the team. Our aim is to teach her the skills she needs to thrive within the industry, offering guidance and mentorship from our experienced staff.

“Demand for our services has grown significantly, especially within the North East. The house buying market including first time buyers and those moving up the career ladder is buoyant, and this prosperity looks set to continue.”

Niamh said: “I joined BH Mortgages as it has an excellent and professional reputation. I have always been interested in the industry and this role was a fantastic opportunity to learn in a real working environment while being mentored by the best professionals within their field.

“I look forward to starting my career with BH Mortgages and am excited to see what the future will bring for me at the firm.”
