Credit Controller Careers in Kenya


The Role Function:

The primary function of a Credit Controller is coordinating the debts of existing creditors and deciding whether to allow credit to a debtor – ultimately managing all money borrowed or owed to your business.

Often reporting to the company accountant, the Credit Controller will handle the collection of finances and the resolution of account queries, raising sales invoices and issuing credit notes.

It is also the responsibility of a Credit Controller to manage debt recovery, which if a client has paid late or missed payments could involve stopping the supply of goods and services or undertaking legal action, at worst dealing with bankrupt businesses to negotiate recovery of funds.

It is vital that a Credit Controller builds and maintains close links with all customers, to ensure smooth running of accounts and encourage timely recovery of payments.
