Sales ledger workers have an important job within a credit control team, so it is crucial that care is taken to select the best candidates for these roles.
Key attributes for sales ledger staff
When recruiting for these vacancies, you should consider the day-to-day tasks a sales ledger employee will undertake and look for people with the necessary qualities to perform this role successfully.
For example, a sales ledger worker must process client payments and ensure the amounts are correct, making a note of any discrepancies. Mistakes in this area can have serious consequences, so the successful applicant must have a keen eye for detail and the organisational ability to look after several accounts at once.
If they are to stop mistakes, they will need to possess strong numeracy skills. This is a basic requirement in any credit control position.
They must also be able to work well with other people, as this will form a key part of their day-to-day activities. Liaising with other members of the credit control team is necessary to ensure each account has been settled correctly, while it may also be necessary to speak to clients about outstanding payments.
If you are seeking someone to fill credit manager roles, or perhaps a candidate with the potential to eventually make this step up, you should look for someone with a wealth of industry experience and a clear passion for the credit control industry.
