Day In The Life Of… Jade Kelly, underwriter, Accord Mortgages

A perk of the job is… helping people to improve their financial situation, assisting them in their day-to-day life and helping them to buy their home.

I wanted to become an underwriter because… as a mortgage broker previously, I was very analytical and always preferred the background work that came with helping people to buy a home.

A common misconception about my job is… that the requirements to get a mortgage can be difficult to meet, strict and very black and white, which I often came across as a broker. However, as underwriters we do all we can to help customers to get their mortgage offers.

Taking on a new role during the pandemic has been… easier than I expected. Of course it was a little daunting leaving previous employment mid-pandemic, but Accord made the transition so smooth. My team couldn’t have been more welcoming and supportive.
