Overview:

We don’t simply hire employees. We invest in them. When you work at Chatham, we empower you — offering professional development opportunities to help you grow in your career, no matter if you've been here for five months or 15 years. Chatham has worked hard to create a distinct work environment that values people, teamwork, integrity, and client service. You will have immediate opportunities to partner with talented subject matter experts, work on complex projects, and contribute to the value Chatham delivers every day. 

We are looking to expand our Debt Management Operations team (ChathamDirect for Debt Management or “CDM”) in our Global Real Estate practice. Demand for this service is growing rapidly and we’re looking for individuals who can help us onboard new clients and service existing clients. CDM is a proprietary, web-based solution enabling comprehensive organization, management, and reporting of our clients' commercial real estate debt instruments and portfolios. Each client is supported by a team of Debt Management specialists throughout the lifespan of the engagement. It is our desire to see every Chatham team member grow into a greater range of responsibilities and depth of expertise over time. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive training program that will serve as the foundation that allows you to assume greater responsibility and positively impact clients and your teammates.

In this role you will:

  • Review legal loan documentation, extract pertinent economic information to ultimately model loan cash flow schedules
  • Support existing clients with portfolios ranging from a few dozen loans to over 2,000 debt instruments  
  • Partner and consult with newly engaged clients to advise on CDM tailoring
  • Serve as Project Manager with newly engaged clients for debt portfolio onboarding projects, including establishing ongoing workflow best practices
  • Ensure that all loan details are accurate and complete using fundamental data management skills
  • Translate client requests from their internal naming conventions to those used internally and provide clear communication back to the client
  • Update existing debt portfolios (Refinances, Amendments, Extensions, etc.)
  • Reconcile loan balances with other client systems on a monthly/quarterly cycle
  • Provide training for new CDM Users
  • Serve as CDM subject matter expert to solve ongoing/changing and challenging client requests
  • Be supported throughout your tenure by a knowledgeable and generous team
  • Develop a solid perspective in debt capital markets and the factors that dictate decisions in commercial real estate

Your impact:

When bringing a new CDM client into Chatham, you will serve as a “financial detective” and work directly with clients to understand their overall goals and aspirations of the CDM engagement. You’ll undertake client-facing activities including introducing our debt management system's value proposition to prospective clients, supporting a focused approach to the development of client relationships as well as organizing and leading training sessions. Often clients’ data resides in disparate systems, spreadsheets and notebooks across their company.  Our clients appreciate that we can manage and centralize their loan information in one place while also providing decentralized access. The picture of a client’s balance sheet is dynamic as they refinance existing loans, issue new debt, make new investments, or prepay existing loans. Therefore, we need to develop ongoing relationships and efficient workflows with clients to ensure that the data in CDM remains consistent, up-to-date, and can serve as a system of record.

Contributors to your success:

  • Bachelor’s degree with a background in finance, economics, or paralegal experience is a plus
  • Capacity for meticulous detail-oriented work while understanding how that work better serves clients
  • Ability to work in a team-based environment
  • Deep intellectual curiosity
  • Effective written and oral communication
  • Ability to organize, prioritize and re-prioritize with daily inflow
  • Desire for evolving and growing responsibilities
  • Exceptional ability to think logically and conceptually
  • Strong client service orientation
  • Ability to build and maintain client relationships
  • Outstanding academic and/or professional accomplishments

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
