Credit Control recruitment agency listing
Credit control jobs involve recovering unpaid funds from businesses and individuals.
Employers of credit control professionals expect job seekers to be able to demonstrate a good standard of general education, excellent computer skills and experience of working in a customer service role. Good communication skills, attention to detail, an ability to analyse information, a confidence with numbers and an ability to negotiate with people who are experiencing financial difficulties are also essential.
The majority of credit control companies provide new staff with on-the-job training. Training may cover basic credit laws, general administration techniques and insolvency procedures. Employees may be also encouraged to study for external courses from an organisation such as the Credit Services Association (CSA).
Credit control specialists may work for either third party debt collection agencies or in the financial services departments of companies. While full-time employment is common, part-time work is often readily available and can be found advertised through financial services recruitment agencies.
Salaries for credit control professionals tend to be between £13,000 and £22,000 a year. Credit control staff employed by smaller organisations may have to change employers in order to achieve promotion and earn higher salaries. Within international companies, staff may be granted the chance to work abroad.
