Positions advertised include business development managers for both bridging and development finance, senior underwriters and mortgage case managers.

The technology team is also hiring aggressively as the business develops its proprietary online tools for brokers.

Ian Thomas, co-founder and director of Lendinvest, said: “We are on an established path to extending our market share over the next 24 months. Investing in talent now is crucial, as we prepare and cater for that sort of growth in the bridging, development and buy-to-let sectors.”

Matthew Tooth, head of distribution at the lender, added: “Speaking from recent experience, it is an exciting time to join a company that has a growth trajectory like LendInvest’s. We look forward to welcoming many new joiners whose professional experience and commitment will contribute towards our performance over the long term.”

LendInvest has also revealed plans to move to larger offices near Oxford Circus by the end of the year to accommodate the expansion plans.

The company has doubled its staff to over 60 since January, and expects to reach 100 full-time employees by spring 2016.

LendInvest recently posted a £3.1m profit – its second annual profit in the two years since launching. This follows a £22m investment in the firm in June by private investors.
