Provident is not a good company to work with and any agent will be given a weekly interview to attend were they are asked to justify figures and amount of time and effort put into running their agency, even though the Agent is classed as Self-Employed.
Anyone thinking of starting with Provident as an agent should have the contract thoroughly checked by a professional person, as e.g one clause states that the contract can be terminated with 7days notice, regardless of how long the agent has worked with Provident..
Targets are always increasing and any agent should ensure they are full aware of the Money lenders Act, check on Central Bank website. An Agent should ensure all instructions received from Provident are in writing.
Income is Commission based and is very low considering the outgoings for an agent, car, phone, insurance etc
