About the Credit Manager role

You will be working in a team that has received industry awards for service excellence (no pressure!). This is something we look for in all applicants and will train you to become even better. Deals come in thick and fast through the day, so you will be busy making things happen from the minute you get in!

You will need strong administration and interpersonal skills, an eye for detail and plenty of drive. Five years’ minimum experience in mortgage credit/underwriting is a requirement, at least 2 years’ of which in bridging/short term finance.

The role is to underwrite loan applications by reviewing the credit files, liaising with lawyers and valuers, and communicating with brokers and borrowers. Essentially, you will be central to the business right in the heart of getting deals done. Whilst you will have your own deals from day one, you will learn how to underwrite increasingly complex loans (Ltd company, offshore entities, multi-million pound loans, and heavy refurbishment loans) from very experienced Senior Credit Managers.

As a career path, we will work with you to become a Senior Credit Manager who can underwrite complex deals yourself from inception to completion within 2-3 years of joining.

Specific duties and main responsibilities

  • Review loan applications against credit criteria
  • Instruct and liaise with Lawyers and Valuers
  • Progress deals through the credit process to completion
  • Be the primary contact for brokers and borrowers

Outline of skills and experience required

  • A degree is preferable but not essential
  • Minimum 5 years’ working experience in mortgage credit/underwriting (2 years’ of which in bridging/short term finance)
