They’re presently building upon several years of healthy growth and expanding operations, meaning that new resources have to be added to the team.

They currently have an opportunity for an experienced Credit Controller to join their expanding team. Reporting directly to the Accounts Manager, this individual will be part of a team of 3 in Credit Control and be a pivotal member of that team. You will have a varied position with a mix of B2C and B2B clients and autonomy over your client base.

  • Collect monies due.
  • Monitor receipts in accordance with agreed terms and allocate cash.
  • Discuss individual debtors with the Accounts Manager, Senior Credit Controller and/or relevant internal staff as appropriate and agree next steps.
  • Contact clients to identify and resolve problems/answer queries, primarily by telephone and secondly by e-mail.
  • Ensure system updates and record keeping is clear and comprehensive so that it can be viewed by other team members as required.
  • Work with internal staff to ensure no further work is done for delinquent debtors.
  • Set up new clients by performing initial credit checks, account opening on SUN and Collect systems, establishing credit limits and risk markers, liaising with colleagues as appropriate, distribution of T&Cs.
