Recruiting for senior positions is clearly a very important process within any company, and it is vital to make sure you pick out a high quality candidate for these roles.
Credit control manager jobs are central to the way your business operates, and you should be looking for a set of core qualities that will highlight a candidate's ability to successfully carry out their duties.
Each role will require different qualities in order to fit with the ethos of that business, and SMEs may have a slightly different idea about what they want than blue chip organisations. However, the basic essentials a credit manager needs are likely to remain the same.
Qualities every credit manager should have
Before you even begin to consider which of the candidates is the best fit for your business, it is of course important to check that they have all the necessary qualifications required to take on this challenging role.
Chief among these is a qualification from the Institute of Credit Management (ICM), while naturally the successful candidate will be expected to offer excellent numeracy skills. It is also good to check what their background is in the credit control sector, as a strong track record will show their continued commitment to the industry.
When speaking to the candidates, consider their organisational and interpersonal skills, as these will both be required on a daily basis if they are to successfully manage their team. Credit control managers are expected to monitor aged debts and ensure money is recouped from clients on time, and they also need to interact with both clients and colleagues.
