Technical BA / Servicing Specialist - London or Sheffield

Reporting to:

Operations Director

Background:

Bluestone Mortgages (BML) is a dynamic, credit orientated lending business with almost 80 employees and operations out of offices in London and Sheffield. The business is backed by Macquarie Bank, one of Australia’s largest investment banks and majority owned by management. BML is part of a group of businesses which include Fignum (a fintech start-up), BMFI (a motor finance business) and BCF (a consumer finance business).

BML’s strategy is to acquire, originate, fund and manage specialist residential mortgages. Currently the business is expanding strongly, and this has created an exciting opportunity for an experienced BA with a technical expertise in first charge mortgage servicing to join our growing Mortgage Operations team.

Bluestone primarily serves customers that fall outside mainstream lenders criteria, making it a very interesting segment to serve. Customers are generally self-employed, contract or part-time workers, recent migrants, and those with complex or irregular incomes. Loan purpose is a mix of purchase and refinance, and we write traditional, help to buy, and buy to let mortgages.

The role will be based in Bluestone’s London or Sheffield office with some travel expected between them both. A portion of time will be ‘work from home’ if desired.
