Why Choose Portman

What Do We Look For In Our Seniors?

For our Senior positions, the key to success lies in being fast paced, extremely self-motivated, and commercially aware with strong business acumen. However, we don’t require previous experience of working in Asset Finance or Brokerage, as our induction and onboarding programme will provide all the product knowledge needed.

As day-to-day activities will involve consultatively prospecting and generating new business from a mix of warm leads (generated by our in-house marketing and outbound call teams) and prospecting yourself, communication skills are paramount.

With a view to forging long-term relationships, being able to understand clients’ key needs and drivers is vital to identifying the right finance solutions to add true value. On top of this, you will need to be adept and comfortable working in a fast-paced environment where you could be managing 30-40 sales processes at different stages simultaneously (with full back-office support provided).
