Sewell Wallis are currently recruiting for an experienced Credit Controller to join a well known, established, global remarketing professional services business based within the South Leeds area.

Due to a period of growth, this is initially a contract opportunity offered on a six month basis, however for the right candidate this is a great opportunity to join a large, progressive business where a longer term/perm role may be offered. This is an excellent opportunity to join a company that has experienced double digit growth for the past three years without exception and is an investor in people.

- Agreeing debt collection targets and negotiating payment plans.
- Payment handling.
- Ensuring that credit notes are processed correctly, monitoring reasons for credit notes being raised.
- Identifying problem debts that require escalation and liaising with the Credit Control Manager as appropriate.
- Allocating cash.
- Reconciling accounts.
- Maintaining relationships with both colleagues and clients.
- Actively engaging, on a monthly basis, with managers and partners on debt status and preparing monthly summary reports.
- Other ad-hoc tasks as required including invoice coding and running system reports.

You will:-

-Have experience of working within a Finance team and will have proven experience of reducing aged debt.
- Be able to start immediately or have a short notice period to give and be happy with temporary work.
- Have experience of working within a fast paced environment.
- Be confident with the full credit control process.
- Have strong written and verbal communication skills.
- Be able to communicate at all levels and be able to liaise with managers and clients.
- Be able to prioritise your own workload to meet deadlines.
- Strong IT skills.
