About First Foundation
First Foundation is a young, exciting company in a rapidly-changing market. The mortgage industry in Canada has exploded with opportunity and independent brokerages are well-positioned to continue to capture market share over the coming years. In 2009 First Foundation was a finalist in for the top customer service award in Canada, and in 2010 First Foundation is a finalist for the "Top Internet Presence" and "Best Newcomer - Individual" awards. In 2009 First Foundation arranged over $74 million in financing and insurance for Alberta home owners, and it's founder Gordon McCallum has twice been named to the Top 50 Brokers list in Canada.
First Foundation is especially well positioned for growth as a company with a young, well trained, personable staff that constantly gets positive feedback from its clients and lenders. As a company with a strong reputation to uphold, the winning candidate will be called upon to maintain and contribute to the company's success and image in the community.
We want someone who can have fun while dealing with pressure. The mortgage industry is very fast-paced, hectic at times, demanding, and can be pressure-packed. We want to work with people who can handle that and keep a smile on their face, get along with their co-workers, and fit into our culture. We don't want prima-donnas, grumpy people, or people who take themselves too seriously. At the same time, you need to be able to get serious when it comes to your work, be honest and professional at all times, and always put the clients first. We strive for a team atmosphere and lone rangers typically don't fit in here.
