Credit Control Jobs

Are you good with analysing facts and figures with sound business judgement? Then a career as a credit controller may be for you. Formal training is not always necessary, but a good standard of education will stand you in good stead - particularly in mathematical or financial subjects.

The workload of a credit controller is varied and depends on experience. Organisation and strong communications skills are necessary - as much of the role involves sending written correspondence and verbal contact with members of the public. The role of a credit controller can be in commercial or consumer focused industries, and involves making informed decisions towards approving loans while managing a portfolio of existing creditors. They will likely report to the company accountant.

What does a Credit Controller do?

• Checking and monitoring current and potential client's credit ratings
• Decision making towards approving loans
• Stipulating terms and conditions of approved loans
• Ensuring payment terms are met
• Negotiating repayment terms
• Enforcing sanctions for non-payments including handing these accounts over to litigation companies.

A junior credit controller salary can expect to be between £18,000 - £25,000 per year. Put your skills into practice by applying for one of our current vacancies.
