Loan Operations Analyst

Operations London, United Kingdom


Description

The role
Our Loan Operations Team is focused on supporting the efficient and accurate flow of ‘borrowers’ through our lending process. We partner with our Sales Team and Underwriters to assess, verify, and document each loan opportunity.
Who are we?
Our mission is to build the place where small businesses get the funding they need to win. 
We do this by uniting cutting-edge data and technology to deliver an unbeatable customer experience.

Say goodbye to lengthy applications and hello to lightning-fast decisions! In just minutes, SMEs across the UK can get an instant decision, giving them access to affordable funding in a flash. 
99% of businesses are small businesses! And in most cases aren’t given the finance they need to grow. We’re here to change that because the world needs small business.
Want to learn more?

What will you be doing?
  • This is a busy admin role where you will be reviewing and processing loan applications to provide fast, efficient funding to small businesses in the UK.
  • Reviewing financial accounts, bank statements and risk reports to process loan applications.
  • Completing know your customer (KYC) checks during the borrowers on-boarding journey and referring cases to our AML and Fraud teams where required.
  • Use third party systems to collect information on the applicant and their business.

  • Someone with an excellent attention to detail, self motivated, strong organisational skills and ability to follow procedures.
  • Willingness to learn and adapt with ever evolving policies and procedures.
  • It would be great, but not essential, if you had familiarity with financial documents, bank statements and identification documents.
