Central to our success are of course our very talented lawyers, but they couldn't achieve their results without the ongoing support from our Finance team who have an essential role to play in growing the business and maintaining our financial performance. This strong financial performance is protected by our Credit Control team who control the credit offered to clients and managing any debt owed.
What will the apprentice do?
Our apprenticeship will offer the opportunity to gain a formal Level 2 Credit Controller qualification as well as paid on-the-job training. You will learn the key aspects of the role which focus on how to resolve disputes and support debt, invoicing, processing credit applications and monitoring debt, how to set policies, facilitate sales and manage financial risk and knowledge of financial law and regulations. Your progress will be monitored and assessed regularly, by a variety of methods including 1:1 support, workshops and online learning. You'll work alongside and have support from Mark, head of Credit Control and the wider Credit and Finance team.
So what are we looking for?
People are at the very heart of what we do and to succeed we need the most talented and motivated teams in place. Our approach is really quite simple and underpinned by our values. We work hard but we also want our people to enjoy long and successful careers with us. That means making sure that everybody has the opportunity to develop and grow as well as being rewarded for their successes. We also feel it is very important to develop our people from within and have decided to recruit an apprentice into this Newcastle-based team, so they can learn from the grass-roots upwards and carve out an exciting and interesting career with us.
Naturally, we're looking for someone who has an interest in Finance, particularly credit control. You'll also need to be a 'people-person', organised and efficient, will have excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, will have a flexible and proactive approach and will be motivated to succeed.
