Big Hiring Plans at Some Mortgage Firms

Recent mortgage-related hiring activity

March 17, 2015

By SAM GARCIA Mortgage Daily

While the mortgage industry as a whole recently saw a decline in its population, some firms have been adding hundreds of new jobs.

Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that non-bank mortgage lenders reduced their ranks by
5,900 positions during January.

Mortgage Daily estimates that including mortgage jobs at banks and credit unions, the industry lost a total of 13,100 jobs in January.

But not all of the industry's players are contracting.

United Wholesale Mortgage reported that it hopes to hire between 400 and 500 employees during 2015. Staffing expanded by 130 percent from 2010 until 2013.

Headcount at the Birmingham, Mich.-based firm currently stands at 1,200 people.

Information about job openings at UWM is online at

Mount Laurel, N.J.-based Freedom Mortgage Corp. last fall disclosed plans to hire as many as 500 loan originators and production staff over the following year. As of February, 400 of the openings had been filled -- and the target number might increase, Inside Mortgage Finance reported.

Freedom Mortgage previously reported to Mortgage Daily that total staffing stood at 1,898 people as of Sept. 30, 2014.

Fifteen hirings throughout seven states were announced in December by Churchill Mortgage. The Brentwood, Tenn.-based company is privately owned by its more than 300 employees.

For those who are sick and tired of being on the receiving end of cumbersome regulations, a career with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau might be the solution.

The CFPB recently was recruiting regulatory implementation and guidance specialists. The regulator accepted 400 job applications for the openings, though that particular recruiting campaign ended on March 4.
