The Company

We are working with a breakthrough online Mortgage Broker that has entered the market in recent years after partnering with one of the UK’s leading credit referencing agencies. Their idea is to simplify the mortgage application process by moving it online and minimising the amount of paperwork and legwork that is typically associated with getting a mortgage.

The main differentiator to their competitors is the direct credit referencing integration. This enables soft credit searching, similar to the likes of insurance/loans/credit card comparison sites. It will select specific lenders based on your credit score and match you to the best potential deals.

This growing Fin-Tech company is very well funded and is growing. Whilst out of the “Start-up” stage, they have now entered the “Scale-up” stage and are aggressively adding to all departments.

From an employment point of view, they offer flexibility and exceptional salary packages. They are looking for people who want to progress and learn. They are happy for members of the team to choose to base themselves out of their Surrey headquarters or work from home.
