James George Recruitment has partnered with a prestigious Asset Finance House in their search for a new Head of Credit and Risk. They are going through an exciting period of growth and whilst the team you will be overseeing is currently a headcount of 6, there are plans for this to significantly grow over the next 12-24 months.

The role will involve leading and managing all aspects of the asset finance and block discounting business, including underwriting, collections, asset management and portfolio management functions. You will also establish robust credit processes and controls to execute against, ensuring that outstanding customer service is delivered, whilst maintaining the quality of the portfolios.

This is a senior-level position where you will report to the MD and have a close working relationship with the Board. You will also ensure development, direction, and management of strategic initiatives promoting business diversity and long-term performance plans.

To be considered for the role, it is anticipated that you will have extensive asset finance industry knowledge and experience as well as significant underwriting and decision-making experience.

You will also have long-term leadership experience at both team and senior-management level.

If you would be interested in discussing this opportunity further, please contact Adam Sommerville for a discreet and confidential conversation. We are also working on 5 Credit Underwriter vacancies at the £50,000-£75,000 basic level so even if this role isn’t quite right, please do get in touch if you are a credit professional and would like to explore your options.
