Responsible Life

Join our customer-first culture

Noel Abbott

Chief Customer Officer

“Since we created our advice service in 2010, we have been passionate about creating a customer-first culture. Here we are, more than 10 years on and I am truly amazed and delighted at what we have built.

We take great care to work with advisers who put doing right by the customer as their top priority. You don’t need to have a wealth of experience in later life lending to be right for Responsible, but what you do need is the right attitude, the right culture and the right ethos – that is what we look for.

So, whether you are looking at crafting the next step in your later life advice journey, whether you want to consider a career change, or simply to work with a company whose values align with your own, please take the time to speak with us to see if we are right for each other.”

What are we looking for?


Bring your experience to Responsible and let's win together!

Do you have a background in providing sound equity release and mortgage advice? Are you CeMAP or CeRER qualified? Do you put the customer at the center of everything you do and would like to work with a company with values that reflect the same values of you and/or your business? We would love to hear from you.

“At the previous company I worked for there was a constant pressure around how you structured your day, your figures, your weekly forecast – it was just relentless pressure. At Responsible it genuinely feels like everyone is pulling in the same direction and everybody wants to be supportive of one another.”


Let’s build your business together!

Do you have a solid background and experience providing quality mortgage and equity release advice? Do you prefer to generate your own leads? If so, this could be an excellent time for you to work with us here at Responsible Life. Joining Responsible Life will allow you to utilise our referral partner relationships with the major mortgage networks and clubs to grow your network of introducers.

“I feel lucky that every Manager I have had have all accepted that I do my own thing, within Responsible’s T&C framework. The split I get is very fair and it saves me a huge amount of work with regulators. I also get help with Marketing which is fantastic!”

“When you undertake your training, you will be shown how to succeed – follow this structure and you will be successful. I was taught to follow the advice but adapt it in my own way so it was still personal to me. I believed it, I did it and now I’m living the success.”
