The client are a FinTech Lender with steady and solid growth – super stable and very well thought of.  The main reason people join this lender – and stay, is the people. There are some super impressive individuals working as a team here, not only will you benefit from some cerebral and genuinely grounded colleagues but you’ll also be exposed to leading edge tech, personal and professional development and some fantastic in-house bespoke systems.

The Role:

This is a Lead role, you’ll work in a team of 3 currently and have real exposure within the Business – so this isn’t for the feint of heart in that regards. You’ll own:

  • Conduct rigorous statistical analysis, forecasting and data mining of various datasets to shape and guide decision-making across several strategic areas


You’ll come from a Credit Risk Analytics background, that’s for sure -though we’re agnostic in terms of Secured / Unsecured – Prime / Near Prime etc. This role is more on the Acquisition and ECM side, which could either add more strings to your bow or you’ll be able to share your deep knowledge and experience with the Business:

  • Relevant credit strategy experience within a financial services or retail lending environment

  • Experience leading a key analytical function (people management experience not required)
