An accelerated career path for veterans

Portman is proud to launch a career development path for veterans

We are proud to launch a career development path that recognises the skills offered by armed forces veterans

We understand that following your career in the armed forces, you will have a host of traits valuable to civilian employment. However you may not have the qualifications required by potential employers. At Portman we’re looking for driven, focused and resilient veterans to thrive in a fast-paced finance career. For the right individuals we will provide all the training you need to succeed as a Commercial Finance Broker.


Who are Portman?

Portman was established in 2007 to provide UK businesses with access to a range of finance options under one roof. We have now arranged over £1billion in funding for over 15,000 companies.   

Portman secure finance for companies of all sizes via our own lending and panel of over 45 partners. We help businesses unlock their potential and owners realise their ambitions by securing the funds they need to grow.


Who are we looking for?

Aimed at veterans leaving the forces in the near future or who have been out for some time, we are looking for:

  • Tri-Service veterans and transitioning service leavers.
  • University and/or Officer Training Academy graduates.
  • Candidates willing to learn new skills from the ground up.
  • Leadership potential.
  • Articulate and confident individuals.
  • Those who are motivated to succeed and recognise the earning potential this opportunity provides.

What’s the role?

Our bespoke Veterans Fast-Track Programme has been created to recognise the unique skill set of our service veterans. It has been specifically designed to leverage your military experience to enable a rapid and successful transition into a fast paced, dynamic commercial finance brokerage career.

An office-based role, you’ll collaborate with and learn from senior colleagues, learning about finance and discussing opportunities with companies that you find or those that enquire. Learn how to unlock potential within a business and develop creative solutions to help customers meet their goals. Build and manage your own portfolio of customers, develop sector and industry expertise and be the contact your customers turn to when they need funding.

You’ll have the potential to progress from Commercial Broker to Executive Broker with a team in 2 years.


What are the benefits?

  • A genuine meritocracy where your financial reward matches your achievements.
  • Competitive basic salary, plus commission.
  • Progression of earnings over time with genuine 6-figure potential in year 1.
  • Work towards recognised industry qualifications.
  • Potential to build and run your own team in the future.
  • 33 days leave including bank holidays.
