Growth in a strategic direction
The business has developed significantly and has managed to double the loan book in the past nine months. Naturally, major emphasis and focus has been placed on improving technology, processes, and systems to see the continuation of this trajectory.
Promotions have been made internally as part of the change team, namely Beth Brook to business analyst; Jenny Gillies to engagement and HR specialist; and Tina Parry to data quality lead.
The short-term finance market remains a thriving arena and Roma Finance is striving to bring the best talent to ensure it delivers its commitments to partners and borrowers.

We love to lend and we are ongoing in our improvements to support our partners and borrowers and provide a truly more extraordinary experience.”
