Introducing Tara Wiltshire

Tara Wiltshire – Underwriter

We’ve recently welcomed Tara Wiltshire to the Apex Bridging team.  Tara is our new Underwriter, we caught up with her a few weeks into her new role to see how she was settling in:

  1. What was your previous job before joining Apex?
    I worked for the Nottingham Building Society, case handling mortgages from application to completion. With this experience I feel like I have a good understanding of the lending world and can transfer my skills from mortgages to bridging loans.
  2. Is the job/team/company what you expected?
    Everybody has made me feel welcome from when I came in for my interviews to today, the company is well structured and there is a process for everything which makes learning the job much easier. Apex has gone beyond my expectations.  
  3. Is anything about your role, the team or company still unclear?
    I am still learning every day, it helps that we are a small team and there is always someone here to help or get a second opinion on.
  4. What are you enjoying most about your role?
    The actual underwriting, researching the property, buyer and location it’s all really interesting.  
  5. What are you enjoying least about your role?
    I like to be the person who has all the answers, so still learning the do’s and don’ts of Apex is a struggle for me.
  6. Do you feel like you know your co-workers well?
    It’s only been 3 weeks, but we all have a very similar sense of humour and I can see great friendships growing already.
  7. What skills do you feel you can bring to the team?
    I am highly organised and can prioritise my work. I have the ability to build and maintain relationships easily, which I hope to do with new brokers!
