As Collections Consultant, you will be responsible for managing inbound and outbound calls and emails to customers, dealing with any financial issues they may have.

You will also need to maintain a high level of customer service and be able to effectively deal with any potentially sensitive financial issues.

The Company:

Our client are real movers and shakers within the car finance industry. They are new, innovative, and a really fantastic company to work for with further plans for development and growth.

Their office is fun, quirky and modern, with free drinks, and regular social activities as they truly believe in maintaining that balance between working hard and having fun. They also offer competitive salaries, bonus schemes and generous holiday allowances to reward their employees for their hard work.

Importantly, they pride themselves on the quality of their staff. They are exclusively looking for candidates with strong academic backgrounds and evidence of consistently striving to exceed and achieve within both their personal and working lives.

Requirements:

  • Finance-related experience is desirable
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Experience of working in a customer service telephone-based role
  • Highly ambitious with the drive to build a successful and fulfilling career
  • A strong academic background
