A superb opportunity has arisen for an experienced Finance Underwriter to join a highly respected Banking organisation in their Midlands office on a 6 month contract. Our client offers a wide range of Finance Solutions to commercial customers for a variety of assets and business purposes.

In this fast faced role, you will be responsible for assessing a wide range of proposals for Commercial customers, utilising your designated lending authority to deliver an exceptional credit underwriting service to the business and their customers.

The successful candidate will be a self-motivated, team player who possesses 2+ years Commercial underwriting experience, with proven expertise in looking at the credit worthiness of businesses through analysing company financials such as balance sheets, profit and loss accounts and cash flow statements. To be successful in this position you will have excellent attention to details and possess strong numeracy skills together with a sound working knowledge of lending principles and underwriting methodology.

It you feel that you possess the skills and attributes mentioned above, we would be keen to hear from you.
