Finding the best people to fill credit control positions within your company can be difficult, and you may still be looking for the best way to secure the highest quality staff.
Portfolio Credit Control knows exactly the kind of attributes that are necessary for these demanding roles, and our experience could prove an invaluable part of your recruitment drive.
Key credit control attributes
Every business is different, and consequently the qualities they look for in credit control positions will vary. However, the core skills never change, and Portfolio makes sure all the applicants you see offer the required skill set for your credit control vacancies.
First and foremost, no candidate can successfully carry out the role if they do not have the required level of technical skill. Your employee will be working with ledgers and debt collection on a daily basis, so strong numeracy skills will be vital. Most departments use either Microsoft Access, Excel or Oracle Database, so knowledge of one of these is also desirable.
Organisational abilities will also be needed, in order to properly track aged debt and ensure the correct amount is paid by clients. The successful candidate will be working as part of a team, so it is important they are clear on what their role is and can communicate effectively with their clients and colleagues.
When recruiting for senior positions such as credit control manager, you should be looking for a qualification from the Institute of Credit Management (ICM) in addition to all these skills.
Our experienced team can help businesses looking to fill roles ranging from credit control assistant to credit manager. We are a division of Portfolio Payroll Ltd, which has been at the forefront of the recruitment industry since 1988.
You can get as much help from our consultants as you like throughout the process, ensuring your business has a much greater chance of finding the right candidate. We take the time to find out exactly what you are looking for, search our talent pool for those who most closely match your requirements and send those on to you for an interview.
