Are you an enthusiastic, hard working person with an excellent work ethic who works hard to achieve results and give the highest level of customer satisfaction? Then this could be the perfect role for you!
L&Q has a vibrant and busy Income management department, which is responsible for minimising arrears and maximising income collection into L&Q. In this role you will be primarily responsible for managing your own portfolio of properties, taking enforcement action including representation at Court and recovering arrears mainly by telephone but also via all other forms of communication available.
At L&Q we are focussed on delivering excellent customer service to our residents and need candidates who are highly motivated and dynamic with excellent telephone skills. The ideal candidates would be used to working to targets and KPIs, as you will be targeted on outbound calls and number of accounts worked each day. You will have the energy and enthusiasm to deliver a consistently high level of performance and customer service.
Ideally, we are looking for candidates that have experience of working in a debt recovery or credit control background or work in a similarly busy and pressurised environment with a high volume of calls. You will need a good working level of IT & analytical skills with proven attention to detail; highly organised and methodical.
We are looking for candidates who demonstrate a clear commitment to the team approach, exchanging ideas and providing support to colleagues. You must be self-motivated, self-starting and self-reliant with the ability to multi-task and effectively manage your own workload, prioritising effectively and consistently meeting deadlines in this busy and demanding environment.
If you believe you have the qualities we are after and are interested in working for an organisation that can really make a difference to people’s lives, then please apply without delay.
At L&Q, people are at the heart of our business and our success depends on employing the best people and getting the best from them. This is why we are committed to developing our people. It's only by investing in a well-trained and motivated workforce that we can continue to prosper and sustain business success.
