Funding 365 relocates amid plans to grow team by 25 percent
Funding 365 has moved to a larger office in south London as it looks to grow its team.
The specialist bridging lender will now be based on the South Bank at 30 Stamford Street, London SE1 9PY, having previously been located in Battersea.
Funding 365 said the move was driven by two factors: the general expansion of the firm and its specific hiring policy.
The larger office and additional desks give it the opportunity to achieve its aim of increasing the team by 25% within the year.
The location and facilities - which include free barista coffee, beer on tap and games such as table football and table tennis - have been chosen to appeal to the graduates that the lender is looking to hire and train up.
“We operate differently to other bridging lenders in that our underwriters see loans through from initial enquiry to completion and beyond,” said Michael Strange, Managing Director at Funding 365.
“Because of this, we like to train up our underwriters ourselves. Our new space and cutting-edge facilities will allow us to continue to attract, train and retain top-quality talent for years to come.”
Calum Waite, a Senior Underwriter at Funding 365, added that the whole team was very happy with the move and its new office perks.
“The free beer is a highlight. Plus, the new offices are ideally located for broker meetings.”
