Our mission is to disrupt the loan and mortgage industry in the UK, by making the process of borrowing money clear, simple and transparent. We believe technology is going to change the way both secured and unsecured lending is done - now and in the future!

As an Underwriting data coordinator, you will be responsible for improving and maintaining our sourcing system (the DE), investigating user queries and system use, testing system amendments and proposing improvements.

You'll join a group of smart, friendly and ambitious people who take pride in improving our system, and hold themselves to high standards in an industry where privacy, security and reliability are essential.

Responsibilities
  • Analyse and extract information from underwriting guides to enable the creation and maintenance of rule sheets for all lenders on our panel. This would include a lender's main criteria, product range, product specific criteria, relevant fees and submission requirements - the information that makes our sourcing system work.
  • Work with our colleagues across the business to push major system changes to facilitate the automation of the underwriting process. The ability to source residential mortgages has recently been added to our system - this involved working with developers, compliance, users and managers.
  • Use a variety of test cases within our staging environment to guarantee that any change to a lender sheet (or creation) has the desired impact.
  • Liaise with our development team to ensure system changes are thoroughly tested to prevent users being impacted.
  • Investigating and responding to real time user queries from across the business - this may involve system use advice, determining short-term workarounds and long-term solutions, or working with the development team to uncover the issue.
  • General system testing with an emphasis on improving the status quo - we are always looking for improvements, and something small can make a big difference.
  • Feeding back findings on system use, with solutions, to improve the business operationally and ensure we know where improvements are required.

Requirements
  • Experience working within the mortgage industry and an understanding of the various lending types - including 'lender talk'.
  • An analytical mindset, strong organisational skills and confidence in decision-making abilities.
  • Good verbal and written communication skills.
  • Working knowledge of Microsoft Office, particularly Excel.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at Loan.co.uk - We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Benefits

We're committed to making Loan.co.uk a good place to work;
  • Be part of a smart, intelligent and industry leading team disrupting the lending market
  • 21 days holiday, plus bank holidays
  • Pension with True Potential Investor
  • Health insurance
  • Quarterly team socials and a budget for cross-team coffees and lunches
