Meet Jim, expert advisor at Hillarys

After a career in sales, Jim wanted to supplement his income while still doing what he loved, and was impressed by the support Hillarys offered both their self-employed advisors and customers.

I love how every day is different, not just sales versus fitting days - every home and customer is different.
Keith, local advisor in Harrogate
