Credit Controller - 12 Month Maternity Contract

Manchester
Reference No: WD-0001430

What's the role?

We're looking for a Credit Controller/Credit & Collection Specialist to join our high-performing Finance team in our Manchester Head Office on a 12 Month Maternity Contract. This is no ordinary credit controller position role as ours is a uniquely high-performing and supportive working culture.

Who is Hilti?

Unless you work in construction, you probably haven't heard of us. We're a hidden gem.

We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the professional construction sector. Our customers are loyal and enthusiastic about us. So are our people.

We regularly win Great Place to Work awards globally and are very proud to have been placed on the Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list in the UK by our employees for the past 10 years.

Hilti offers the best of both worlds – friendly teams locally and roles across the UK combined with the opportunities only a company of 30,000 people spread across 120 countries can bring.

What does the role involve?

In this role you will assist in controlling the level of debt on a divisional ledger by maximising cash collection from the accounts. You will take action on unapplied receipts and general maintenance of customer accounts.

You'll also be responsible for identifying, actioning and resolving customers queries in a timely and efficient manner. You will process all high volume collection calls (inbound and outbound) from customers and field based personnel in an efficient and professional manner

93% of our people say they’re proud to work for Hilti, thanks to the quality of our products and the way we look after our people.

What do we offer?

We really value our people and we've worked hard to develop a competitive reward package that reflects this. Some of the benefits we offer include:

*Genuine career advancement (more than 80% of all leadership roles are filled internally)
*Competitive salary and above-average performance bonus
*6% employer pension contributions
*Private Health Insurance and Employee Assistance Programme
*33 days' holiday (inc. Bank Holidays) plus the ability to purchase 5 days more annually
*Paid leave to work on charitable projects
*Hilti Benefits Box, a reward platform offering a cycle to work scheme and shopping and lifestyle discounts/cashback
*Flexible working arrangements after 6 months' service (e.g. work from home options, compressed hours)
*Free parking and excellent public transport links

Our Head Office is currently based next to Old Trafford but in early 2021 we will move to state of the art new premises at Circle Square in Central Manchester. We will continue to offer free parking for employees and will be located a short walk from Oxford Rd train station and St Peter's Square tram stop.

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people and success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.

What you need is:

  • Successful Credit Control experience (achieving targets) in a busy business to business environment
  • Highly developed time management, organisation and prioritisation skills
  • IT knowledge in MS Office and SAP S/4 Hana
  • Self-motivated team player with ability to work under own initiative
  • Strong interpersonal skills
