Life at Lendi profile: Tahlia Sykes, Home Loan Consultant

Where were you before joining Lendi?

I have been working in the financial planning/finance industry for more than 9 years. Prior to joining Lendi, I was the Lending Manager for a local financial planner in Buderim, on the Sunshine Coast.

Why did you decide to join Lendi?

The platform Lendi has created and built was a huge draw for me. Having a team who supports all our compliance requirements is so reassuring.

Also, the bonus of having a dedicated support team to look after settlement processing post-submission allows me to focus more on my client relationships.

I utilise all these components of the Lendi model in full and wouldn't change a thing!

How has Lendi changed since you joined the team?

Lendi has grown in many ways. The technology is always improving and the product team is always learning and growing.

Looking back over the last year alone, this growth has allowed us partners to work more efficiently with clients to submit loans in-house. I love that!

What are the top 3 things about working at Lendi?

  1. Team support - I wouldn't be able to do the volume I do without the support team so I am so grateful and thankful for them all

  2. Compliance stress relief - having a team who make sure you don't have any small slip-ups is such a relief.

  3. Culture - as an interstate partner, it can be lonely at times. Lendi makes sure you feel involved and provide a great workplace culture that extends back to us, across the country.

How has your life changed since joining Lendi

I have much more flexibility in my personal business structure. I have a young family so I need to be readily available for them and to be able to choose my own working hours.

I definitely work full-time hours, but I have the choice of when I do these hours so I can work around my other commitments.

In saying that, because the team is constantly supporting you in the office, nothing is ever held up or prolonged, regardless of when I may be available (or unavailable).

This is a major stress reliever for me to know that my clients are always supported.
