About us:

We are one of the UK's leading Eco Renewable Energy Technology companies within the new build housing & commercial sector.

In 2006 we set about creating an environmentally friendly business that made it possible for homeowners and owners of commercial buildings to harness new solar technology advancements. In 2007 the company was born. The company has grown by an average of 25% per year and since then, we have become an industry leader and added a number of other products and services to our portfolio, all to facilitate sustainable living.

We have installed our green energy technology on more than 20,000 buildings across the UK, including schools, hospitals, medical centres, universities and distribution centres and new-build housing.

Testament to our success January 2021 saw energy brand E.ON take a stake in the business to help accelerate our growth and take our sustainable eco vision internationally. It’s an exciting time to be joining us!

Despite winning backing from a larger brand we continue to operate as an independent, ambitious, fast-moving, agile and tight-knit SME backed by the stability of a stock-market listed brand. Win-Win!

The Mission:

Your mission is to ensure that the team achieves our cash collection targets on a monthly basis and that our creditor/debtor days targets are met.

As cash will be a huge focus for us in times of growth, your role is to ensure that all customers pay us on time and that all payments are allocated immediately.

Working within the credit control department, you will be measured and focused on:

+ Meeting cash collection targets
+ Achieving set debtor day targets
+ Chasing and coordinating all retention payments

You will use the ERP system to ensure that we highlight any potential late payments and limit installations for customers until the correct process has been followed and to hold our customers to their credit limits.

You will also systemise and chase ongoing retention payments (our customers withhold 5% retention on all invoices which need to be chased and diarised depending on the contract completion) to unlock cash that is due but needs to be constantly chased to be released.

You will issue a monthly report to the sales and operations team to highlight poor/late payers and coordinate any delays or notices with customers to ensure that we are always on top of delayed payments.

We don’t believe in endless KPIs or micro-managing our people – but we do believe that people want to know what is expected of them and then to have clear feedback on how they are performing against their expectations, so that our people know what they need to do to grow and develop.

About You:

+ Excellent time management skills
+ Highly organised and robust
+ Diligent and attention to detail
+ Treating the company's cash like your own
+ High standard of written and verbal communication
+ Share our values and help the team

What we will give you:

We will give you a great culture to work in, flexible hours, a friendly and engaging team with the autonomy to work alone but with constant support and motivation from your colleagues. We will set you clear expectations and give you daily, weekly and quarterly feedback so that you know exactly what you need to do to be successful.

We will give you a purpose to work for a company who is making a difference for future generations, who is constantly innovating and providing services that help reduce our carbon footprint and tackle climate change.

You may have worked in the following capacities:
Credit Control Clerk, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Clerk, Finance Assistant, Credit Controller, Credit Control Assistant, Accounts Assistant, Debt Collections Agent, Debt Collections Agent, Debt Recovery Agent.
