Sales Associate: Pathway to Mortgage Broking
- Department: Customer Operation
In 2021, two powerhouses in the Australian mortgage industry, Aussie and Lendi, merged to form Lendi Group. This union is a match made in heaven, because both brands were born as disruptors, driven by a desire to see things done differently for customers and brokers alike.
Since the day we came together, we’ve been dedicated to changing the way Australians experience property lending - for good. Today, we’re the #1 branded retail distributor of home loans in Australia, but this is just the beginning. We’re a brand on a high growth trajectory, committed to helping Australians achieve their property dreams, while supporting our brokers and team members to build successful careers in the process.
Join Lendi Group as an Associate, develop your sales skills, and build towards a successful future as a mortgage broker or finance professional.
Our Associates Team forms a vital layer of our sales organisation. This team focuses on setting appointments and driving qualified opportunities into the diaries of our Aussie and Lendi brokers around the country. As an Associate, you’ll handle inbound customer enquiries while also making outbound contact with leads to see if we can assist with their lending needs.
In this role, you’ll develop a solid foundation in sales, gain an intimate knowledge of home lending and the Australian mortgage market, and ultimately lay the building blocks for a successful future in mortgage broking or the broader finance industry.
Key responsibilities of an Associate:
Prospecting customers over the phone and discussing their lending needs
Converting inbound and outbound leads into qualified customer appointments for our brokers
Identifying opportunities for customers to refinance their existing loans and obtain finance for new purchases
Leveraging your sales and relationship building skills to encourage customers to engage with our online platform prior to their appointment, where they can upload documents and provide their broker with key info
