Orbit is a fantastic business and one that's really going places. We are one of the UK's leading housing groups providing high quality, good value homes to over 100,000 customers across the Midlands, the East and South East. We own and manage 42,000 homes and build 2,000 new homes every year.

We currently have an exciting opening for an Underwriter to join our Tenancy Sustainment Team to ensure the financial viability of our tenancies. The Underwriter will make informed decisions on who Orbit will house, using a risk based assessment process to minimise tenancy failure and reduce the financial risk to Orbit.

As a successful candidate you will work closely with the Lettings Team and Tenancy / Money Coaches to ensure tenancy failure is minimised and to identify mitigating actions that are needed to ensure customers succeed in their tenancy.

You will be a skilled underwriter from a finance, insurance or similar background. Housing sector knowledge is not essential as full training will be provided. We are looking for a meticulous individual who can assess key criteria including candidate affordability in order to mitigate risk and ensure the tenancy is effectively sustained.

You will be a strong communicator and a team player with experience of working across various teams, both internally and externally. You will be able to manage your own workload and work to deadlines.

Please see the attached Role Profile for further information.

Our customers are at the centre of everything we do. We provide all sorts of homes for all sorts of people and our innovative approach empowers every one of them to grow and flourish. We are looking for someone who shares these ideals.

Why apply?

We empower our employees and enable people from every background to achieve their career ambitions by giving them the support, benefits, training and environment they need to thrive at work and in life.
