Life at Lendi profile: Nick Devai on his journey to Product Specialist

Tell us about where you were before joining Lendi

I didn’t have any kind of financial background prior to joining Lendi. I worked in retail for close to 8 years, in Sales and then as a Manager.

Why did you decide to join Lendi?

I joined back in 2015 when the business was still very much in its infancy. At the time, I was really looking for new opportunities and challenges since retail had a very low ceiling of progression. An old colleague of mine I worked with in retail had left and started working as a mortgage broker, we caught up and he said it was something I should look into. I jumped online and Lendi was one of the first job adverts I saw, so it was really more of a happy accident that it worked out the way it did!

How has Lendi changed in your time here?

Quite a bit! I think there were about 40-50 people that worked here when I joined, compared to the now 300 or so staff we have.

What are the most enjoyable things about working at Lendi?

  1. People - There are really amazing and talented people that work here, that I’ve also been able to learn a lot from.
  2. Challenges - Each and every project comes with its own set of challenges and it’s always great to be able to overcome them.
  3. Opportunity - The business is still growing and there are always new doors opening for people, I’ve seen a lot of people move into roles now that didn’t even exist previously (myself included).

How has your life changed since joining Lendi

If you asked me when I first joined what I'd be doing in 4+ years, I don't think I could have comprehended what I'm doing now as an option that was possible. I’ve worked here as an Associate, a Home Loan Specialist, a Trainer in L&D and now a Product Specialist which has given me a wealth of experience and knowledge.
