The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries is creating the new role of associate director to help manage the day-to-day running of the mortgage trade body.
Chris Cummings is still director general of Ami but also manages this responsibility alongside heading up of the Association of IFAs, so the Ami is now looking for “an exceptional person who can handle detailed technical information with ease, whilst at the same time keeping the big picture in view and developing the strategies that will take the organisation forward”.
According to a statement issued by the Ami, the associate director post is being advertised and the position will require an individual to:
- Lead and develop the team;
- Lead on regulatory analysis and formulate Ami policy;
- Contribute to the development of Ami’s strategy as the trade body expands;
- Manage stakeholder relations with members, politicians, civil servants, regulators and the media, and
- Deliver AmiI’s financial targets as a not-for-profit organisation.
Cummings says while a compliance background is not essential, a thorough understanding of regulatory matters is necessary.
“This role offers the right person a considerable challenge. In just over two years, Ami has established itself as the natural voice of the mortgage intermediary community. We now represent just over 75% of the industry and we are seeking an exceptional individual to take Ami forward and build on that success. The role of associate director provides a rare opportunity to make a real difference to the mortgage intermediary industry.”
The position is also based in London but UK travel will be required to stay in touch with Ami members.
Applications through a CV and covering letter must be received at the Ami by 22 December 2005 but for further details and a copy of the full job description, visit www.a-m-i.org.uk or contact Rebecca Goddard on 020 7628 1288 or email [email protected].IFAonline
