Junior Underwriter

Job description

At Selina Finance, our mission is to empower homeowners to access the wealth locked up in their homes as easily as using a credit card

We believe our clients should not have to rely on costly unsecured credit, inflexible mortgage products or expensive intermediaries

Selina is introducing HELOCs (Home Equity lines of Credit) to the UK, allowing customers to dip into their home equity with the flexibility of a credit card and the affordability of a mortgage


We’re disrupting the antiquated, paper based mortgage market by delivering consumers better products, and a superior customer experience.

As a Lending Assessor, you will start a career in the heart of the action, the underwriting team, looking to progress to mandated underwriting positions:

  • Ensure efficient, world-class processing of the credit underwriting of loan cases
  • Analyze and verify income sources, bank statements and credit commitments
  • Work with our underwriting team to ensure that cases are underwritten based on full information
  • Structure, negotiate and analyse proposals for approval by mandated underwriters
  • Bring in your own ideas to improve our underwriting processes

You’ll be right in the heart of the action here at Selina. We’re looking for driven, detail-oriented team players. We win by placing customers interests first!
