Senior Credit Controller - FMCG - PE Backed

Salary: £35,000 - £38,000.

Location: City, London

Hybrid: Min. 3 days in the office per week

I am partnered exclusively with a PE backed FMCG group based in Central London to appoint a Senior Credit Controller. The business has experienced a period of sustained growth and international expansion. This is a newly created role within Transactional Finance and will suit a self starter, someone who is driven and that can work well under pressure. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to really make a difference by adding value and improving the current processes.

Main responsibilities and requirements:

  • Review of ledgers with detailed reports - aged debt, balances in dispute, exposure, and credit risk
  • Manage the full end to end Credit Control function
  • Experience in dealing with high volume of credit notes
  • Dealing with international ledgers including Europe and the US
  • Multi-currency experience.
  • Experience in dealing with key retailers
  • Prepare reports for the monthly Board Meeting
  • Implement and maintain robust processes around limiting risk and bad debt
  • Advanced Excel and systems experience
  • Experienced in high volumes of receipts
  • FMCG/Retail and ID / Factoring experience would be beneficial
  • Be commercially aware and confident liaising with internal and external stakeholders
  • Ambitious and driven
  • Problem solver who wants to work in a fast-paced PE environment

The successful candidate must have a minimum of 3 years recent experience working as a Credit Controller from the FMCG/retail space who has experience working with international ledgers. They will have the opportunity to improve procedures and policies as well as potentially grow a team underneath them as the business continues to grow.
