Our Client has an immediate requirement for a Senior Operations Manager to take the reins of the back office and provide a safe pair of hands for the smooth operational control of the company. Knowledge of credit processes and the Broker marketplace would be a distinct advantage. This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing company and develop your career whilst adding significant value to the business.

The Role

Reporting to the Managing Director and with broad responsibilities, you will be required to create a more effective and scalable operating platform to enable the business to grow its market share. The day to day operations will typically require everything from assessing a credit risk presented by the sales force to ensuring that the team secures credit approval from a large panel of Lessors, through to managing every approved deal from entry into the credit queue to completion/pay-out in a timely and professional manner.  

The Candidate

You will have operational and credit experience in Asset Finance & Leasing and be able to engage with and support sales team operations. A depth of hard asset underwriting experience gained ideally from a standpoint of having underwritten deals from the broker network with a full understanding of SME lease underwriting. P&L, Balance Sheet & cash-flow analysis skills, as well as asset based secured and unsecured lending expertise to an array of young and established SME businesses - rather than blue chip risk ‘tick box’ credit acceptance.

Required Skills & Experience:

  • A sound understanding of Operational procedures and processes.
  • Knowledge and skill set relating to Credit Underwriting.
  • Comfortable operating in the Broker marketplace.
  • Highly driven, enthusiastic and professional.
  • Customer focused with a desire to ‘get the deal done.
  • Effective management skills appropriate for a small team.

About our Client

A well-established, open and friendly company providing bespoke broadcast media asset funding to the UK SME community. A full range of funding options are offered - not just HP and Lease - but Discounted Receivables funding, Operating Lease and Educational Rental financing. 60% growth in 2016-17 has led to our client offering ‘own book’ funding in 2017. This is an exciting time in the evolution of the business.

With specialist industry knowledge, niche asset expertise and true professionalism, our client has a large company feel whilst retaining the personal values of a small one.
