Mortgage processing, loan assessor and phone-based file assessor roles will all be in demand this year, according to a new jobs report.

The prediction was made in the latest Hays Jobs Report, covering January to June 2018, which outlined that there would be “high demand” for several jobs in the mortgage sector in the first half of this year. 

According to Hays, there will be demand for mortgage processors as “consistent property sales fuel back office processing and administration requirements”, while the banks will be looking to recruit more staff to cover home loans this year. 

Hays stated: “Exceptional mortgage lenders are in high demand as banks promote existing performers and backfill vacated roles.”

Mobile lenders would also be in demand, but the recruitment agency said that the “highly competitive” market would mean that “financial services institutions all vying for the same candidates”. 

It also stated that “phone-based file assessors and loan assessors are also sought by most of the big four in response to the high volume of contact centre and back office work”. 

Relationship managers would also be needed, as institutions “look to further expand their footprint” and SME business relationship managers would be sought after “in response to the growing number of small businesses”. 

Nick Deligiannis, managing director of Hays in Australia & New Zealand, stated: “We start 2018 off the back of a strong, stable run o jobs growth where the labour market grew by over 383,000 positions in the past 12 months. Basically, more people are looking for and finding work. 

“New calendar year hires will add to momentum as employers fills gaps in their headcount to take advantage of strong economic conditions.”
