Underwriter

Position Title: Underwriter
Location: Sydney

Team: Lending
Reports To: Lending Manager

Our purpose at Bluestone is to provide a sound service in helping Australian consumers realise their financial goals by saying ‘YES’ when the other lenders say ‘NO’. By making a decision based on individual circumstances rather than a credit score. How we interact is guided entirely by our 5 values – transparency, ownership, enterprise, commitment, and collaboration.

It’s a fast-paced, challenging, passionate and changing environment and one where it gives you the opportunity to fulfill your potential with continuous learning! We place equal importance on personal qualities as technical ability and with our smaller teams and flat line structure, you will feel part of the close-knit team from the beginning. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Underwriter to join a fun, fast paced rapidly expanding global financial company.

The role will appeal to someone who has extensive experience in underwriting in the non-conforming market and who has a strong commercial acumen and the ability to shape and negotiate deals.
