Whether you’re a graduate looking to begin a career in credit control or you’re looking for a credit control role somewhere new, Portfolio Credit Control’s experienced consultants can help you secure the right position for you.
What we look for in candidates
Credit controllers play a crucial role in a business’s debt recovery process, and therefore are vital to the overall cash flow of the company.
You needn’t have a vast amount of experience under your belt in order to qualify for a role as a credit control assistant, yet this can be advantageous and help you stand out. Young and driven individuals are often effective within this role.
Necessary skills and experience include:
- A high grade in GCSE maths – it is vital that candidates can demonstrate their proficiency in this area given the financial nature of the position, as an inability could lead to potentially expensive miscalculations.
- Strong time management skills – the successful applicant will need to be highly organised in order to effectively assist the credit controller in the management of several accounts at any one time.
- Proficiency in Microsoft Access Excel or Oracle Database – candidates should be able to demonstrate their ability to use the software to a practical standard.
Above all, you must have exceptional communication skills and be able to remain calm in the potentially stressful situations that can arise in credit control.
