Job Description

You are a seasoned underwriting and or credit operations manager with at least 3 - 5 years' underwriting and operational experience within the financial services or leasing sector or certainly something very similar...and I'd like to hear from you!
I'm hoping that you're currently considering a move to pastures new and feel confident that you'll take with you strong practical experience of some, hopefully many, of the following, though not necessarily in this order:
* Scorecard design and testing
* The commercial risk implications associated with credit and lending decisions
* Underwriting processes and procedures
* Management information reporting
* Credit and lending underwriting decision making
* Workflow and work queue management
* Process design and continuous improvement
* Quantitative and qualitative analysis
* Financial statements
A highly diligent, objective, assertive and confident communicator, I believe you'll be comfortable in both a hands-on and strategic day to day commercial credit and lending based role, adaptable to change and able to calmly liaise with internal stakeholders that may not always be entirely happy with your necessary decisions.
So what about the role in question?
Based East Berkshire and on the outskirts of West London, this known international business will potentially be very interested in discussing with you their search for an Underwriting Operations & Funding Manager. If ultimately successful in securing the position, and they at securing your services, you'd report to the Credit Director and in turn manage a team of 5 that oversees underwriting, review, booking and funding.
Your role as Underwriting Operations & Funding Manager would also involve, but not be limited to:
* Undertaking proposal reviews
* Managing underwriters to ensure adherence to existing SLA's
* Reviewing work queues
* Acting as an applicable escalation point
* Liaising and collaborating with IT regarding relevant projects
* Testing and tuning of scorecards

* Significantly reduced rate vehicle leasing option or cash in lieu
* Contributory pension scheme
* BUPA - family cover or cash in lieu
