Report highlights demand for lending professionals

A new report by a global recruitment company has revealed that lending managers and BDMs are some of the highly sought-after professionals in the finance industry.

The Hays Quarterly Report for October to December 2015 shows there is a continued demand for branch lending managers and mobile lending managers as companies continue to take advantage of the property market.

Commercial lenders and business bankers are also sought, while BDMs in asset and equipment finance are in high demand, according to the report.

“Lending officers are needed too. This is considered an important customer-facing role and so demand will remain high. Bilingual lending candidates with Mandarin language skills are also sought,” the report said.

“Banks continue to recruit relationship managers as they realise the importance of deepening customer relations in a fiercely competitive banking market.”

The report noted that mortgage brokers are also in demand, but many candidates are not interested in commission-only roles, while others need to improve their business development skills or are simply not looking to drive business.

“This has created a talent mismatch for this role, with a shortage of candidates with the skills employers are looking for,” Hays said.

“Mortgage assessors and mortgage verifications officers are also sought. Given increasing workloads, additional mortgage support is required.”
