A day in the life of... Danny Scoltock, Head of Underwriting
Danny Scoltock is head of underwriting for TAB and has over ten years of specialist finance experience. For the next day in the life series, he gives us an inside look into his daily routine as head of underwriting.
How long have you worked at TAB?
I have worked for TAB since May 2019 and was one of the first employees with the company. Since joining I have seen the business and my team grow into what it is today and I am immensely proud of what has been achieved since then. It's testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire TAB family!
What does your role at TAB involve?
I look after the underwriting team and the management of the pipeline of ongoing loan applications. I underwrite some of the more complex bridging and development finance applications. In addition to this I provide support and advice for the team whilst working with other teams such as Risk on policies and processes, IT on system improvements, reporting to senior management and being a part of the credit committee approving loans.
What’s the best thing about working at TAB?
What I love about TAB is the environment that has been created. There is a feeling in this company that I have not had before.; almost like a trust and level of freedom where we are all trusted to just get on with our jobs, no micro management and people leading others by example. It's a refreshing approach where we all just get on with what is expected of us. This in turn has led to a great culture across the business and I think this is what sets us apart from other institutions. We are growing rapidly and yet manage to keep that small business feel of closeness. And the fact I love bridging finance and the variation each case brings!
