Senior UI/Visual Designer Hybrid £50,000-£60,000 per annum benefits

I am working with an award winning online mortgage broker, delivering personalised mortgage recommendations through a hybrid of smart tech and human mortgage experts. They are also backed by a major corporation that own a number of other brands across the world.

With mortgages being one of the remaining financial services to be digitalised, they are looking to transform the market. They are planning to own every part of the process and improve the customer experience from start to finish, empowering confident mortgage decisions for millions of mortgage seekers.
