We’ve been building a bank which aims to make ‘everyone better off’ for a number of years and our restless ambition is in continuing in 2016 with the launch of our SME business. We’re going to be the new kids on the block – this means we’re looking to build an exceptional team who can help us get there. As part of our Sales offering we are looking for a Business Development Manager for Block Discounting. You’ll work on our new proposition, taking this to market, building relationships with customers and subsequently building and managing a portfolio of business

You’ll play a critical part in launching our SME proposition by finding the clients that will help us build a strong Block Discounting portfolio. This will mean constructing a picture of your client’s business, understanding what products would be suitable and subsequently taking them through any process in a fair and compliant manner. It’ll be important for you to keep the customer at the heart of your every action to ensure that we are a responsible lender and do the right thing by our customers – this will include writing credit proposals and evidencing that we have carried out the appropriate risk assessments.

Within this specialist area you’ll help keep us up to date with best practice, market trends and with what our competitors are doing. You’ll also provide technical expertise on Block Discounting, ensuring all conditions of approval are met and that our exposure is effectively monitored. As the expert in this area you’ll proactively monitor and identify trends in the portfolio, develop and implement strategic plans to improve our market coverage and help us embrace new opportunities.

By bringing your expertise of the SME market to Virgin Money you’ll be a key piece of the puzzle in our delivery of a successful SME offering. You’ll need extensive experience of working within the Block Discounting market and a track record of delivering success against commercial targets. Keeping the customer at the heart of everything you do will be your focus, as this allows you to deliver the best possible solutions to the individual and their company. You’ll also have experience of writing detailed credit proposals with strong risk awareness and a strong understanding of the regulatory requirements we operate under. We’re going places so we are looking for people with passion and vision to join us in this mission.
