We are a successful social enterprise with offices in London, Birmingham and now Liverpool.

To help achieve our ambitious goal of supporting 1000’s more entrepreneurs over the coming years we are looking for a Credit & Customer Support Executive (ninja!) to join our Liverpool office. The primary focus of this role (50%) is to conduct credit assessments of new loan applicants and to assist them through the first stage of their loan application. This is crucial but repetitive work.

You will provide important support to our analysts as they evaluate entrepreneurs and prepare applications for consideration by our business advisors.

  • Scrutinising ID documentation and carrying out anti-fraud searches
  • Administering the loan draw down process
  • Supporting our clients and mentors on the phone, via email and in our office
  • Updating and maintaining Excel reports and our Salesforce CRM system
  • Other tasks as directed by your line manager

Preferred knowledge & experience

  • Proficient with web browsers and online information gathering
  • Proficient in Microsoft Outlook & Excel and using a CRM
  • Knowledge of credit reporting
  • Customer service experience via phone, email or SMS

Competencies and behaviours

  • High attention to detail (as repetitive data entry is required)

  • Fluent in written and spoken English
  • Ability to operate in a busy working environment, handling multiple tasks and delivering high quality results
  • Ability to manage time and prioritize tasks effectively
