ahardcastle@tudorfcltd.co.uk

What do you like most about your role at TFC?
I have worked my entire career in Banking prior to joining Tudor Financial Consultants, I have found working for a “family business” such a refreshing change.  The speed at which improvements & efficiencies can be implemented is unbelievable, this is a result of everyone having a voice within the team. Our team has a wealth of experience and everyone is more than happy to share their experiences and help one another, achieving the best outcome for our clients. So, happy staff & happy clients – what’s not to like!

Tell us something interesting about yourself?
I’m not sure it’s interesting, but it’s definitely a brave thing to admit…  I hold a season ticket at Barnsley Football Club, and have done so for most of my life, this provides a mixture of excitement and disappointment throughout the year!

LSheldon@tudorfcltd.co.uk

After starting in the financial industry in 2014, I started working with Tudor Financial in 2017 and haven’t looked back since! I love being able to support people at one of the most stressful and important times of their lives and at Tudor Financial that’s really easy to do because every client is treated like family.

Out of work I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking. I also love interior design and I enjoy designing and crafting different things for the house.

Joanne Gray

Case Manager

jgray@tudorfcltd.co.uk

I joined the Tudor team in June 2018 and work as an administrator part time.

I enjoy my role as it has developed so much over this time due to the company being successful and expanding quite quickly. My role is rewarding as I feel I am part of the clients journey to help them buy their first home/dream home and assist with the requirements along the way to make this as smooth a process as possible.  I also enjoy working with the team, we all work well together and moral is very good making for a great working atmosphere.

Before Tudor I worked for an IFA processing pension & investment applications, in fact my whole working career of around 28yrs has been in financial services, so its obviously something I love!

Away from work I enjoy spending time with my family, I am married and have 2 daughters, who all keep me quite busy. Weekends are usually spent ‘taxiing’ the girls to numerous places and we love to go on family walks with our golden retriever ‘honey’ it keeps us fit and is very social.

Bethan Johnson

Case Manager

bjohnson@tudorfcltd.co.uk

I have now worked for TFC for 2 years, after spending a year at university. One thing that I enjoy the most about my role is my ability to aid our customers through the mortgage process and answer any queries they have during a time that can be somewhat uncertain. Outside of work I like spending time with my family and socialising with friends.

Olivia Capitano-Hunter

Case Manager

ohunter@tudorfcltd.co.uk

What do you like most about your role at TFC?
I like each day is completely different. You are constantly dealing with multiple different cases which can be challenging but so rewarding , especially once the clients have been advised there mortgage offer has been issued and they are that one step closer to the end process. whether this being a first time buyers dream home or building up a property portfolio and purchasing a new buy to let property.

How long have you worked for TFC?
I only joined Tudor financial in February, I was instantly welcomed into the family team environment who ensure we not only put the clients at the heart of the business but ensure the staff feel valued daily , and work together to help our clients find the mortgage process as stress free as possible.

What did you do before joining TFC?
I worked within the financial industry as a mortgage processor for three and a half years before being given the opportunity to join the team at Tudor.

Me and my partner are in the process of renovating our new house which is keeping us very busy at the moment. This aside I love spending time with family and friends and getting ready for our first baby who is due in October.

Tell us something interesting about yourself?
Before beginning my career in mortgages I took a year out to travel Australia, New Zealand and Bali. It was an unbelievable experience where I was able to tick off the majority of my bucket list which included sky diving and bungee jumping in New Zealand , scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef and visiting amazing water falls in Bali.

What our clients say

Tudor helped my wife and I remortgage our home in the first year of our new business.  This was not a simple task but they were more than equal to it.  Chris and the team held our hand from start to finish and were always available to answer our questions, no matter how stupid they may have been! I cannot recommend them enough and they will be our first port of call for any financial advice and services in the future.
