Your work environment

With 30+ years of experience my client has built up a solid position in the Dutch residential mortgage market by providing consumers, intermediaries and investors with high quality products and services. Each individual company provides their customers with best in class propositions, aiming for the highest customer satisfaction.

At the same time the sum of the entities provides a full offering from consumer to investor which, from within one independent group, is unique in the Netherlands. This allows us to provide investors with a ‘one stop shop’ entry to the Dutch residential mortgage market and to provide intermediaries and consumers with high quality mortgage products and services.

Within the Private Equity environment we work in, we have the ambition to build and grow further, the Netherlands is not our limit. More and more international ambition and growth by merger and acquisition will boost your development too.

The parent company sets up group-wide strategy, goals and parameters in order to give guidelines to the subsidiary companies and to serve them with the appropriate support in, amongst other things, accounting & financial control, group control, compliance, audit, legal and privacy.
We have an informal working atmosphere in which we think it is important to focus on the development of the organisation as well as the employees. We focus on qualitative results in a qualitative way.
