Entry requirements

For Credit Control vacancies, our clients often seek candidates that have intermediate computer and accounting software skills which include a solid understanding of Microsoft Excel. Credit Controllers may also need to have excellent written and verbal communication skills as they often deal with customers, vendors, and clients on a daily basis. Experience handling accounts queries and good negotiation skills are also beneficial to possess as Credit Controllers may need to navigate tough situations such as escalations and disputes. Previous experience in Credit Control with a good understanding of the end-to-end Accounts Receivable process can be advantageous for more senior Credit Control positions.

  • Credit Control
  • Account queries and dealing with disputes and negotiations

Who makes a great Credit Controller?

People with one or more years’ experience in Credit Control or Accounts Receivable but more importantly, enthusiastic professionals who are excellent communicators, have a keen eye for detail, and the ability to juggle workloads and deadlines without breaking a sweat.
