JOBS

Come and join our team!

We are looking for positive-minded, friendly people to come and join the team at Pinewood Finance.

As an agent you act as the face of the company, visiting customers in their own homes, collecting repayments and advising them on the best products and services to suit their needs.

DO YOU WANT THE FREEDOM TO BE SELF-EMPLOYED?

As a self-employed agent, you will be allocated up to 200 customers, visiting them in their own homes to collect weekly instalments, calling back as often as necessary if they are out. This is a flexible job where you can choose how many hours you work and your earning potential.

FULL TRAINING GIVEN

No experience required, as our local team will be on hand to help you every step of the way, offering all the support and guidance you need to be successful.

WORK LOCALLY

As a self employed agent, you can work in your own local area so it’s easy to fit around other commitments. You must have a car, a mobile phone and be able to work late afternoon and early evenings. Your objective is to collect payments from your customers and issue further loans whilst strictly adhering to company credit granting rules.

You will be expected to sign up new customers either by encouraging recommendations from existing customers or dropping off leaflets and following up enquiries.

Your work will include locating customers who have moved away and negotiating with those struggling to afford repayments.
