  • Analysing accounts and prioritising collection using Aged Debt reports
  • Persuading clients to pay their accounts within the specified time, without harming the relationship

  • Maintaining and updating client records on the accounting system
  • Carrying out regular risk reviews

What we are looking for:

  • Demonstrable credit control experience
  • Good level of IT skills - including Microsoft Word and Excel
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal and organisational skills
  • The ability to work effectively as part of a team

What's on offer:

  • Competitive salary dependent on qualification and experience
  • 26 days annual holiday, plus statutory holidays
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Life assurance
  • Private medical insurance
  • Permanent health insurance
  • Reimbursement of membership fees to professional bodies
