We have some truly exciting plans to make our flagship referencing team even bigger and better in 2023 meaning now is the perfect time to get involved in an exciting growing business with lots of opportunity.

We work on behalf of letting agents (our clients) to reference prospective tenants for rental properties across the UK, which includes obtaining references from previous landlords and assessing their financial suitability for the property. It is a fast-paced role with a mix of inbound and outbound calls, responding to emails and assessing documentation provided as evidence.

  • Making phone calls consistently throughout the day and sending emails to chase responses from applicants, landlords, employers, and any other relevant referees.
  • Educating tenants and their referees on the requirements in order to establish affordability and suitability for a property and assisting them in how to provide.
  • Taking phone calls and assessing emails to update applications and our customers of progress.

Ultimately, we care much more about the person you are, how you think and approach things, than a list of qualifications and buzzwords on a CV. Even if you can’t say ‘yes’ to all the above, but are smart, self-motivated, and passionate about delivering a great experience to our customers then you could be just what we’re looking for.
