Hope Capital has seen a significant spike in demand since the COVID-19 lockdown was eased, with enquiries in June up 189% on the previous year.

It is now anticipating further growth as new funding lines become available, and is looking to recruit talent in all areas to support increased business volumes.

Among the roles in question are business development managers (BDMs), underwriters and portfolio case managers, as well as internal sales and administrative support staff to back-up the growth in external-facing roles.
