There are many reasons why you might need someone to step into a credit manager role on a temporary basis. It may be that a member of staff is taking an extended absence from work, or there may simply be a temporary increase in workload that you need to deal with.
Whatever the reason, it remains just as important to find quality staff, and Portfolio Credit Control can help you find candidates with all the attributes you need. You may even want to give them a permanent role once their initial contract comes to an end.
Skills a Credit Manager Needs
As their stay will only be temporary, an interim credit manager needs to be someone who can get started with the job at hand straight away, and this means an extensive knowledge of the credit control industry.
Their work history will reveal a lot on this subject, but you can also see if they have additional qualifications like an Institute of Credit Management (ICM) accreditation. This shows a long term commitment to the industry that will stand them in good stead as they take on this new role.
The successful candidate must have excellent organisational skills, both to quickly settle into their new interim role and to make sure all client invoices are handled correctly.
To have reached a senior level, they will already possess strong mathematical abilities, which will help to ensure there are no errors in any calculations.
A good credit manager also needs to be able to work well with people, both in leading their team and communicating with clients.
