Working at Coreco – Hannah Lee

We asked one of our Client Services Team member what it’s like to work at Coreco. Here is what she said….


How did you start at Coreco?
 In the middle of the pandemic I was crazy enough to take a big leap in my career and start studying to become a mortgage broker. To compliment this and progress further on this path, I tried to find some of the best mortgage brokerages not too far from me and Coreco came up at the top of my Google search. I was lucky enough to get an interview with my manager Charlotte who offered me a position on the team as a client services assistant and of course I accepted! 😊

 

What does a day at Coreco look like? I’m sure I’m still due to discover what a day truly looks like at Coreco, from the past 6 months I have worked with them I have spent most of my time working from home. From what I know from my time there and just general work though, its busy busy busy. But I love that, I enjoy working towards targets and motivating myself to do better than the day before. Being in the position I’m in, I hold a lot of power over potential clients, I am (alongside my colleagues) the first contact/ introduction new clients get at Coreco. It’s important to really smile through the phone and make a good impression!

 

What do you enjoy about working at Coreco? Even though I have only been here half a year, I can honestly say Coreco feels like a second family. I can be open and express my opinions and know that I am being listened to, which I think is why the relationship between management and other staff is so strong here. Not only that, but Coreco is super invested in my future and has always vocalised this from the beginning of my journey. I want to progress in my career here and hopefully become a specialist broker in time (fingers crossed!)

 

Where do you see yourself this time next year? This time next year I will have 100% passed my CeMAP qualification in mortgage advise and practice. Therefore, I will have hopefully stepped up to an administrative role in the company or have a mentor I can shadow and work for, so that when the time comes I can do their job myself too! I would also love to be studying DipFA which is the qualification for financial advisory, who knows I may have even passed these exams too if all goes to plan 😊

 

Top tip for someone who wants to be a Coreco team member? Be PERSISTANT. I knew I wanted this position so I made sure I was persistent (but not annoying hopefully) which meant following up on my application to make sure I was being considered (because I wanted to get the role so badly)! But also to be yourself
