This is an exciting opportunity to join a well established company to help us ensure customer debt is managed in line with contractual terms, chasing overdue debt, resolving queries and coordinating the defence of claims for contra charges.

Main Responsibilities:

  • To work with the customer to achieve timely payment of debt and resolve any issues that cause it to be paid late
  • To work with Commercial and Production to resolve any issues that would prevent invoices being raised or cause debt to be paid later than it should be

  • To ensure that deadline dates and payment dates are obtained from our builders and are added to the billing schedule
  • To request credit notes as required and agreed with the Commercial Manager or Heads of Commercial
  • To manage the customer retention accounts, ensuring this is always kept to a minimum by recommending to the Commercial Managers where retention caps (or lower retention caps) would be appropriate, monitoring that caps are adhered to, and chasing retention balances falling due
  • To prepare cumulative spreadsheets where required and ensuring these are provided to Accounts Receivable to be sent with the invoices
  • To prepare aged debt reports to be reviewed with wider commercial, operational and finance teams
  • To maintain the builder requirements list and ensure this is up to date, so that the Accounts Receivable team are aware of the current requirements
  • To carry out additional tasks to support the business as required
