Charlie joins us as Start Up Loans Officer and will be providing support to customers applying for a Start Up Loan.

Hi Charlie, can you tell us more about your role at SWIG Finance?

My new job title with SWIG Finance is a Start Up Loan Officer and the role is centred on just that; Start Up Loans. I will be taking on applications, helping customers through the process and to the point of receiving a loan to fund their new business venture. I will be carrying out appraisals on each application to ensure that the business plan and cash flow forecast is watertight, as well as ensuring that the applicant is in an appropriate financial position to take on a loan.


What experience do you have that will help you succeed as Start Up Loans Officer?

In my former role for Cornwall Development Company, I carried out detailed appraisals on project applications from a wide range of EU funded programmes. This involved working with a wide range of small businesses, which included assessing their financial viability, and helping them to access funding.

What part of your new role are you looking forward to the most?

It’s a fast-paced, hands on role and is certainly going to keep me busy. It’s also a highly rewarding role, as I can help people secure a loan to kickstart their business dream. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my brief time here thus far and look forward to continuing the fulfilling work.

We are delighted to have Charlie on board to help our Start Up loan customers. If you would like to discuss a Start Up Loan application, call the team on 01872 223 883, or visit
