In my position as Senior Credit Controller before retiring in Dec 2016 I was responsible for 4 collegue's under my department. The main responsibilities was to Credit check for New Credit Application to ensure they would be able to pay their Monthly credit accounts . Opening accepted Customers Accounts & confirming with them all details in order that they can communicate within our various departments when ordering transport jobs or storage within the Company. The challenge of the job which I found most satisfactory was liasing with customers on the telephone which I would try to keep friendly but firm in order to relax them & should they have difficulty in paying then I would always try to find a solution, rather than automatically take them to court. .I had a good repore with both collegues & management,especially the Managing Director as it was a close personel family business which I found to be very rewarding .
Flexible working times
I really enjoyed my time at the company. It wasn’t like anywhere I’d worked before. Everyone was a big family, always laughing and joking, and aslong as you got your work done, it was a very relaxed atmosphere which is the perfect way to work. I wasn’t there very long as I started 2 months before the pandemic hit, so I was made redundant after 6 short months and was absolutely gutted as the hours where perfect, I got on with everyone and it was close to my home so was easy to get to. I would definitely apply for any future jobs they had :)
Lovely meals out paid by the company
