Credit Risk Analyst


Risk assessment is not an area where your department can afford to make mistakes. Recruiting a credit risk analyst is a very important task, so it is worth thoroughly assessing a range of potential staff in order to find the right person.

There are a number of key skills to look out for as you seek the perfect candidate to join your business, and as your recruitment agency Portfolio knows how to find talent.

Qualities of a credit risk analyst

Given that mistakes can be so costly, it should come as no surprise that attention to detail is something recruiters regularly pick up on. A credit analyst candidate should be able to provide examples of this within their application, for example they might discuss how they demonstrated their attention to detail in previous roles.

Some knowledge of the credit control industry is preferable, and the successful candidate will express an interest in developing this. Numerical skills must be high, as this will naturally make mistakes less likely. This is the same for all credit control employees, from billings managers to credit controllers.

Credit risk analysts find themselves at the heart of a busy team on a daily basis, so being able to communicate clearly with colleagues will make their job much easier. It should be clear from an applicant’s CV how much prior experience they have of working within a team and whether or not they could achieve this successfully within your organisation.
