CREDIT AND COLLECTIONS RECRUITMENT FIRM
Credit and Collections Recruitment Agency
The use of credit and collection of debts is a crucial factor in keeping the financials of a business running smoothly; hiring the right credit and collections professional to monitor and record accounts while leveraging relationships to call upon debts could lead to a significant increase in a department’s organization and efficiency. However, recruitment for these professionals is often challenging due to the high variability in job responsibility. The two separate forms of collections, Commercial and Consumer, and the range of roles from clerk to specialist make understanding each role and its responsibilities a vital factor.
We Know Commercial Collections
Commercial Collections and Consumer Collections are distinctly different focus areas under Credit and Collections. On the commercial side, professionals should possess the ability to build relationships to recall debts and settle accounts. Recruiting for commercial collections, generally, operates with more focus on the interpersonal skills of candidates as they spend a majority of their time interacting with clients and other companies.
We Know Consumer Collections
As opposed to Commercial, recruiting for Consumer Collections places an emphasis on candidates’ knowledge of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and its legislation. Professionals in Consumer Collections should demonstrate a proven knowledge of collecting ethically and legally.
