We are looking for a native level/fluent German AR/Credit Collector to join the EMEA financial shared service centre for an international manufacturer with $6 billion annual revenue.

Reporting to the Team Lead and German business units, you'll be solely responsible for the proactive collection of overdue debt, more importantly aiming to reduce overdue payments to an absolute minimum by building strong relationships to ensure customers are paying on time for this area of the business.

You'll additionally manage disputes, escalating them to senior management where necessary and be responsible for reporting during the key financial periods.

This is a lovely opportunity for those who have perhaps studied accounting/finance at degree or CIMA/AAT etc; those with other accounting experience looking to move into a different area; those with previous collections experience to move into a long-sighted business that will allow you to diversify in the future.

  • You should be driven and personable, with strong numeric and problem-solving qualities.
  • Basic-intermediate Excel is required; SAP is desirable, but non-essential.
  • Experience in an EMEA/European SSC (or BPO) is desirable.
  • Examples of previous process improvements would be great.

People relocating within the UK or from mainland Europe are more than welcomed, but should note that a car will likely be necessary on a longer-term basis - those with a driving licence are therefore preferable!

The company prides itself on family values, a strong sense of inclusion and allowing individuals to gain exposure to other business areas. Set in the beautiful rural county of Gloucestershire in a modern office, this is a great long-term opportunity.
