Head of Group Credit Risk and Collections

Bolton, Greater Manchester

Circa £43,000 to £50,000 (dependent on experience), plus car allowance, potential bonus 18% and pension

We have a brand new role on our Bolton site as Head of Group Credit Risk and Collections.

About the role

With 4-5 direct reports and overall responsibility for a team of over 100 people, this is an exciting opportunity to add value and drive positive change within the business unit. With the ability to lead, inspire and motivate, you will liaise with senior stakeholders across all business units within Royal Mail Group (RMG).

Working closely with Sales, Customer Experience and Revenue Protection to support delivery of business goals, you will create a positive environment, shaping the team culture and finding innovative solutions for efficiency and performance.

Your knowledge of relevant financial accountancy standards and background in credit risk and complex billing will allow you to ensure RMG’s compliance with accounting standards. In addition, you will manage credit risk, drive down debt and generate cash-flow. 

About you

We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual who can hit the ground running. As a qualified accountant or member of the Institute of Credit Management, your background in finance and/or shared services will give you the knowledge to find solutions to customer issues on credit, billing and payment issues.

Your resilience and tact will allow you to challenge others and deliver difficult messages where required. A strong demonstrable track record of leadership and driving efficiency is a necessity.

While you’ll be familiar with Microsoft packages, additional experience with accountancy packages would be a distinct advantage (eg. SAP).

While based in Bolton, occasional travel to Chesterfield and London will be required.

About Us

Five centuries in business has made Royal Mail more than a household name. We connect companies, customers and communities across the country, delivering a ‘one-price-goes-anywhere’, universal postal service to more than 29 million addresses across the UK.

Our market is changing, but as a FTSE 100 organisation we are focused on achieving our vision of being recognised as the best delivery company in the UK and across Europe. We want to be more commercial, flexible and efficient and are employing our strong brand and a range of new products and services to achieve this.
