Job Description

A position has arisen within a well-regarded regional law firm for a candidate, with a minimum of 5 years’ experience in collections either with a law firm, debt collection agency or in-house credit control operation in a volume case environment.  

The successful candidate will take ownership of the debt recovery service area in respect of its daily operations and caseload with the scope to build and manage a small team as the area grows. The caseload will predominantly be commercial debt recovery caseloads but will include some recoveries from ‘consumers’. 

You will be experienced in operating debt collection/credit control case management systems (CMS).
