Views from the flipside

In the last 12 months we have increased the size of our 130 strong workforce here in Chester by almost a tenth, following a major new investment in the business. We are happy to say that we will be taking on more new staff with openings in IT, project management, training, and sales.

We are also increasing investment in training in order to provide a range of highly skilled jobs in the region.

We pride ourselves on our exceptionally high retention of staff, with an average tenure in excess of six years. In recent years the strength of our company culture was recognised by The Times through our inclusion in their Best 100 Small Companies to Work For.

With the national economy improving, more firms are looking to borrow in order to grow. We have been pleased to offer tailored lending solutions to firms across the UK, from a wide variety of sectors. This has afforded us the opportunity to grow in tandem with our customers.

Our Head of HR and Training, Stuart Applewhite says: “We are very happy that we are able to support British firms in their plans for expansion. Our teams get a real sense of satisfaction from watching the success of our long-term customers. We are looking forward to bringing that support to a wider market.”

“In the longer term we expect to build on our leading position in the UK asset finance market. We anticipate lending in the region of £140 million to businesses in the next year, and arranging increased volumes via our broker channel.”

“In order to achieve our targets we want to attract and train high calibre staff from the local area. We are delighted to be creating local jobs and providing long-term careers.”

What our customers say

We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. White Oak UK were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
