Working at Kensington Mortgage Company

What we do

On Wednesday 13th December 1995, Kensington completed its first loan and pioneered a new approach to lending to customers overlooked by mainstream lenders.

Nearly 25 years later, we’re one of the UK’s leading residential specialist mortgage lenders, with a mortgage book of over £6bn, and we’re still blazing a trail offering people the chance to get a mortgage.

Where high street lenders see black and white, we’ve always seen the shades in between. We don’t just rely on what the computer says, we use real people to understand the real circumstances behind what’s written on a mortgage application form. Our innovative use of data, driven by our in-house analytical tool Vector, combined with human expertise and flexible lending criteria is what we call our ‘head and heart’ approach. It comes from an understanding that no two people are the same. That a self-employed builder will have different circumstances to a contract worker, a kitchen table entrepreneur, someone who’s over 55 or who has a small blip on their credit file.

Everything we do at Kensington is driven by a core set of values and beliefs, which we’ve created to promote a culture of respect and communication between colleagues. It’s what we stand for, and we work hard to ensure that everyone brings our values to life each and every day.

Keinsgton Mortgages is a wholly owned subsidiary of Barclays Bank UK PLC from 1 March 2023, and the principal activity of the Company is the origination and servicing of mortgage assets. The Company is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority for regulated activities.

We are passionate people helping extra-ordinary people own homes when other lenders won't
