Glasgow Credit Union is the largest and most successful credit union in the UK. Formed in 1989 with two members of staff, we have grown substantially over the years but our objective has always remained the same: to help our members and ensure they have access to friendly, professional financial services that meet their needs.
Thanks to our history, size, and local expertise, we’re uniquely placed to offer a personal service that larger banks can’t, which is what members tell us they need. And with the right people in our team, it’s a commitment we can deliver.
A career at Glasgow Credit Union puts you at the centre of a member-owned financial co-operative in an inclusive working environment. We believe in rewarding innovation, supporting diversity, and making a positive impact on Glasgow —socially, economically, and environmentally.
If you’re looking for a company that offers competitive and flexible rewards and benefits, and a chance to help build a healthier community, we invite you to explore the possibilities.
We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Mortgage Adviser for an initial probationary period of 6 months, with the possibility of a permanent role at the end of this period. You’ll be CeMap qualified or have an equivalent qualification and be committed to making a memorable and personal impact on our members.
What you’ll do
You’ll have conversations with our members to understand their individual needs and circumstances. You’ll use strong interpersonal skills to build trust and a strong relationship with our members, providing expert and personally tailored advice to help them fulfil their home buying aspirations.
You’ll be there for our members to:
Build strong, trusted relationships providing a friendly professional service
Deliver fair and accurate advice on the most suitable products that meet their needs
Ideally, you’ll have previous experience giving mortgage advice, but more importantly, you’ll have exceptional people skills with the proven ability to fact find and make recommendations which meet our members’ needs. You’ll also be proactive and go above and beyond to provide our members with the very best support.
The contract will be for an initial 6 month period. Salary – £25,000 p/a
