As we continue in our mission to reinvent the property finance market, we’re rapidly expanding our team and our business beyond London and the Southeast.
With that in mind, we’re now planning to expand to Scotland, so we’re recruiting a Scotland-based Business Development Manager to join the LendInvest team. At a later date this will hopefully result in the launch of a Scottish office with local sales, underwriting and case management expertise.
This launch marks LendInvest’s first official presence outside London and forms part of our broader strategy to expand operations into more UK regions throughout 2016. Business development roles will be launched in the West Country, Midlands and Northwest in the Spring.
Meeting borrower demand
To date, LendInvest has been most active in London and the South East on account of the team’s own experience and the concentration of borrowers in this region. However, we also take notice of borrower demand and have backed developers in densely-populated English towns including Nottingham, Birmingham and Ipswich.
LendInvest research suggests that the Scottish market continues to be undersupplied by active mortgage providers. Our existing residential bridging and short-term buy-to-let products will be available to new Scottish property entrepreneurs seeking loans with a maximum 70% LTV lasting up to three years.
It has always been our intention to be a lender that brings smart and efficient underwriting practices to mortgage deals throughout the UK. Making Scotland the first launch location for the company outside London puts a marker in the sand for the sort of expansion we are envisaging. We’ll be excited to welcome a new colleague on board and then starting closing our first deals there!
The Job Role
Are you based in Scotland? Do you have what it takes to help expand our business? The successful candidate will be responsible for originating mortgage deals for the fast-growing business throughout Scotland, but particularly in the central belt that runs between Glasgow and Edinburgh where quality demand for finance is highest.
