Job Description SummaryA relationship based role responsible for the smooth delivery of new lending applications to the acceptance stage, adhering to lending and regulatory processes and providing the required client experience to cement LBG as the best bank for business. Working within a team of New Lending Managers, responding to client and agent needs to ensure excellence in service is delivered to our clients.
The Agricultural Mortgage Corporation PLC (AMC) is a market leader in the provision of medium and long term secured loans to the farming industry in Great Britain. It aims to be the first choice for farm and rural finance on the basis of ambitious terms and quality of service.
AMC has an 18-month secondment vacancy within the New Lending Team in Andover working 25 hours per week, responsible for converting a target of £900m of loan applications to a successful loan completion in 2020. The team has a key role in growing AMC's customer base by successfully negotiating an acceptable deal with existing and new customers in order to secure new and further lending business for AMC, whilst maximising income and identifying Partner opportunities i.e. switcher leads.
You will use your excellent communication and negotiation skills to build positive relationships with our customers, AMC field based personnel and other professional contacts. We operate in a busy environment so your self-motivation and use of initiative will demonstrate the team ethos required. Your attention to detail will ensure your clear focus on delivering results as well as ensuring an easy and simple process for our customers whilst safeguarding AMC's position at all times, paying due regard to Responsible Lending principles.
A good understanding of the Agricultural industry would be a plus, but it’s not essential as we’ll give you full training and all the support you require to reach your full potential with an Induction Programme followed by 121 training.
AMC is a small ‘head office’ function and where possible we actively encourage and support our people to develop skills and experience across the business that supports a flexible workforce to effectively manage our work loads. You may therefore, from time to time, also be expected to carry out other duties, where the capabilities are the same and the role is of an equivalent level.
Our office hours are 9am to 5pm and we are open to discussions around flexible working to facilitate a working arrangement suitable to both you and the business. We are committed to the principles of agile working and are proud of the industry recognition we have received, including Stonewall Top 100 Employer, Top 30 Employer for Working Families, and Times Top 50 Employer for Women and Gold Standard 2014 from the Business Disability Forum.
