Our client has successfully doubled in size four times in the last four years, so it is expected they will achieve this confidently in this time.

Our client has therefore targeted £1bn in lending in the next year, which will drive more loans and borrowers to the loan book. Due to this, the growth of the loan management team is critical to future success and returns for their investment partners and borrowers.

The lender in question operates with great success to support professional property developers and investors with access to bespoke funds for key property projects. Their core offering include bridging finance (up to £50m) and development exits for property development partners, coupled with commercial mortgages and complex BTL propositions for a broad range of SME and property investor borrowers.

The incoming Loan Portfolio Assistant will work with the Senior Loan Management team with the ultimate view of ensuring that all active loans within the property loan book are performing, to achieve healthy redemption. Due to this you will support the team with tracking loan performance, raising early warning signs or opportunities from within the portfolio.

Where issues or opportunities are identified you will work to support the solution which may include aspects such as arranging new loans, assisting borrowers with product transfers, planning redemption strategies and assisting with loan or asset recovery.

Month by month you will assist with matters such as the collection of interest, devising and delivering reports for borrowers, investors and senior management, reviewing contracts and undertaking audits, liaising with external suppliers and credit bureaus, maintaining deal sheets, undertaking borrower due diligence & being a main point of contact for the lenders borrowers throughout the life of the loan.
