Credit controller or debt collection specialist

Credit controller or debt collection specialist

Manage credit and collect monies owed for businesses and other organisations

This advanced credit controller/debt collection specialist apprenticeship focuses on consumer and commercial credit management and collection of monies owed, offering you the opportunity to earn a qualification from either the Chartered Institute of Credit Management or the London Institute of Banking & Finance. In credit management, you’ll learn how to manage and protect cash flow, while, in debt collection, you’ll focus on overdue, late or unpaid money owed to the organisation. Fast-paced and target-driven, these roles require a detailed knowledge of law, regulations and the business environment, and you’ll develop excellent technical and interpersonal skills. These are rewarding career choices if you’re a self-motivated and enthusiastic individual who would enjoy a varied role working at the centre of operations. As an apprentice, you’ll ultimately have to specialise in credit risk.
