Specialist bridging lender Hope Capital has appointed three new members of staff as it continues to grow.
Georgina Roscoe has joined the business as PA to CEO Jonathan Sealey, Joanne McGillicuddy has been appointed as underwriting assistant while Yvonne Dunn starts as admin assistant.
Since June 2016, Hope has doubled its workforce to 14 staff with five new joiners in this year alone. And not only is Hope expanding fast, but the company is also leading the way in promoting women in finance; Georgina, Joanne and Yvonne’s appointments means over 70 per cent of the staff are female.
Georgina is a seasoned Executive Assistant with more than 20 years’ experience, having previously held positions at international law firms in the City of London including Cooley LLP and Bircham Dyson Bell.
Her extensive knowledge in the field means she is highly skilled at all administrative tasks, including event management, and is able to tailor her skills to meet the needs of the business and clients alike.
Georgina’s main responsibilities will be to support Jonathan in his activity to achieve the goals of the business. She said: “Hope is a fantastic company with a great track record, and I am looking forward to supporting Jonathan as he strives to take the business even further.”
Joanne joins as Hope as underwriting assistant and brings with her a wealth of experience of working to tight time constraints and proactively liaising with internal departments and stakeholders to ensure deadlines are met.
In her new role at Hope, Joanne will provide financial and administrative support to the underwriting team, to maintain up to date and accurate case data and ensure that all data meets data protection requirements.
Yvonne’s organisational and communication skills, and her many years of administrative experience will be a real asset to the team. She is passionate about providing excellent service to all clients and in her new role of admin assistant, she will help assist with the smooth running of the office.
Jonathan Sealey, CEO, Hope Capital said: “We have had a very successful year so far, with a 30% increase on our loan book in the first three months of 2018. To continue to grow, we need to bring people who can help us achieve our targets. Georgina, Joanne and Yvonne will play key roles in that growth, and we are delighted to welcome them all to the team.
“We will be moving to a new and bigger office in the next month, and will then be looking to take on more people in all areas of the business to help us achieve our ambitious expansion plans.”
