You will be able to sensitively handle delicate situations, particularly those customers who are facing financial difficulties and decide upon the best course of action. At other times you may liaise with Solicitors to pass on unrecoverable debt. Your handling of our customers at every touchpoint should remain professional, polite, kind and helpful to manage expectations, to meet customer needs and in turn, meet the needs of the business.

Our preferred candidate will demonstrate good experience in Accounts and Finance, with at least one year's experience as a Credit Controller. You will be able to demonstrate previous experience in a B2C credit control function with a proven record of recovering aged debt balances.
It is important that you can establish and maintain good client relationships through various communication channels, manage expectations and make sound decisions whilst remaining calm under pressure. With a tactful approach, you will be able to cope with challenging situations and be assertive when necessary.
With a good standard of education, with a minimum of GCSE to level C / 5 in English and Maths, you will be able to reconcile complex accounts, be numerically adept and show excellent attention to detail. You will demonstrate good IT skills, with a high standard of competence in Microsoft Office applications including Excel.
