Ideally you will be able to speak Spanish or Portuguese - or another European language.

My client can offer full training, to those with limited credit control experience, but this role is ideally suited to individuals who have held similar roles within a team environment previously, within a European team ideally, and if you are able to hit the ground running with limited training, then this would be preferred. A fluency in one of the above languages is essential. The role will be required to tackle some over-due debt, along with some more complex accounts, so the ability to work with self-motivation is essential.

- Raise credit notes and re-issue invoices as and when required

- Maintain detailed notes on all accounts, and up-date all relevant systems with the status of all outstanding invoices

- Allocating payments daily and accurately

- Resolve disputes effectively

- Follow up any cases with Customer Services teams as and when required

The successful European Credit Controller will offer:

- Fluency in English

- The ability to work to tight deadlines and to work on ore complex cases

- Intermediate Excel, along with previous experience of SAP or Oracle

- The ability to work in a small, experienced team and to be self-motivated

- Available at short notice to start this role (within a two week notice period ideally)

This is a challenging, fast-paced Credit Control position, and requires the individual to be extremely team-focussed, and be able to maintain a quality of service to all of it's customers, and work effectively with all internal colleagues, account managers, sales staff and admin staff at all times.
