GHL Group to appoint four new staff

Guaranteed and Genesis Home Loans are to appoint four new members of staff including a Head of Packaging key management position.

Levels of business handled by GHLs packaging arm have increased since the launch of the groups web-based online Decision In Principle service, which saw two new members of staff join its placements team earlier in the year.

GHLs latest recruitment programme will see the appointment of three case administrators as well as a Head of Packaging who will report directly to the operations director.

The role involves overseeing the day-to-day running of the packaging operation in Maidstone as well as delivering the required target business levels. The position will further entail understanding and working closely with existing staff as well as brokers and lenders, in order to continue the development of this fundamental segment of the business.

Three new case administrators will join the existing team of eight and will report to the new Head of Packaging. As senior members of the team they will process mortgage applications from all 16 lenders on the groups packaged lender panel, for both appointed representatives and directly authorised brokers alike.

Neville Sharman, operation director at GHL Group, says: The continuing success of our online DIP service has once again led to the need for more staff as well as a more defined management structure within the department. By adding to our staffing levels now, we will not only address the current business level issues, but also ensure that we have the capacity to deal effectively with anticipated future volumes created by the release of further developments to our e-commerce function.

Case study: administration — implementing a management log

Our client is a leading video game and publishing company best known for its console role-playing game franchises. The client provides a number of benefits, at varying levels and cost that attract a P11d liability. With the absence of a management log to track data for benefit movements, enormous administrative and therefore cost implications were occurring each year just to comply with P11d reporting requirements.
