Jill Rickson Biography
Having worked within the Financial Services industry for over 22 years, Jill has extensive knowledge of the mortgage market and she likes to think that there is very little that she doesn’t know about mortgages.
Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.
– Bo Derek
Her career in Financial Services started purely by accident, but very shortly afterwards she realised that this was her niche.
Jill would say that her work ethic is “always do what you say you will do.” Jill will never promise something that she cannot deliver and always keeps in regular contact with her clients throughout the mortgage process.
After 21 years in the business, she has come to the conclusion that experience counts for everything and “it’s not who you know but most definitely what you know.”
Jill joined Pembroke in 2013 having spent the previous 12 years as Mortgage Manager at another IFA practice. Prior to that, she had spent 6 years as an in-house Estate Agency based financial (Mortgage) adviser.
Not only does Jill hold the CeMAP qualification for Mortgages but she has also attained ER1, which validates a specialism in the area of Equity Release advice.
Outside of work, Jill loves spending time on her three passions in life – her husband, holidays and cars!
- 2013 to present: Pembroke Financial Services
- 1995 to 2013: Various positions as a mortgage broker in IFA and estate agency
I would highly recommend Pembroke Financial Services!
I used Pembroke to source a mortgage and Jill Rickson was my adviser. Not only did she find me a brilliant deal but as a first time buyer she helped and guided me through the whole process of buying my first home. I had another mortgage adviser before Jill and there is no comparison of the service that I received. Jill was excellent, patient and fully explained everything. I would highly recommend her services to others looking for a mortgage.

Excellent mortgage adviser
I can wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Jill Rickson of Pembroke Financial Services for the excellent, friendly and knowledgeable services she provides! We worked with Jill for our original mortgage application and the re-mortgaging of our property and were thoroughly impressed each time. Without her help, I don’t think we would have been homeowners now as we had been given less than encouraging information by other mortgage advisers. Thank you Jill for everything!!
Jill always seems ahead of game
I have known Jill for over 15 years and she has arranged several mortgages for my wife and I. Fortunately Jill always seems ahead of game, contacting me well in advance of any decisions that have to be made allowing us enough time to reflect on the options Jill has put to us. I have done and would recommend Jill to potential clients. In addition I am happy for Jill to pass on my details if you wish to speak to me directly.
Efficient, reliable and informative
Jill has arranged several mortgages for us, for both our main homes and a buy-to-let property. We have always found Jill to be efficient, reliable and informative, and we really value her straight-speaking, no-nonsense approach. Being kept well-informed, during what is usually a stressful period, has also been really wonderful, and much appreciated.
We would recommend Pembroke Financial to anyone
We would recommend Pembroke Financial to anyone. In particular Jill Rickson, who has helped us out several times with re-mortgaging and when we moved. She is friendly, efficient and seems to have a better knowledge of the mortgage products than several other financial advisers we spoke with.
Jill was an absolute pleasure to deal with
I cannot thank Jill enough for her recent help in guiding me and my wife through the re-mortgage process. She was polite and responded to all our queries quickly, but she was also very thorough and clear in the way she explained each step. Jill was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and we will be looking to use her again when we eventually move house.
