Do you have the passion, drive and resilience to deliver tangible results?
Are you a debt recovery manager ready to enhance and elevate your career? Do you have experience of managing a commercial enforcement agent team and now driven to demonstrate your dynamic leadership skills by creating, shaping and leading a new highly performing team? If you are, then an exciting opportunity awaits you at one of the Capital's most progressive Local Authorities.
Spanning both inner and outer London, Brent is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent's diversity is evident to all who visit the borough and their long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work there.
Wherever you look in Brent, you will find challenges and also opportunities. Some of the communities they serve are vulnerable and marginalised, and of course local authority financing has been severely constrained and radically restructured. In Brent they look more for opportunities, and to date have succeeded in finding innovative and creative solutions to the many issues they face.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
This is a new role, created to lead the Council's aim to increase debt recovery performance and therefore provides you with the opportunity to make your mark by creating strategies, functions and policies to deliver tangible results. The role requires a comprehensive knowledge of the law surrounding debt recovery and the ability to work in partnership with legal and finance teams. Success in this high profile position requires passion, resilience and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively to a wide variety of audiences and work to tight deadlines with the minimum of supervision, exercising tact and diplomacy at all times. In return for your dedication you will receive the support, guidance and access to resources that will enable you to perform to the best of your ability.
This post requires:
- A valid Enforcement Agent certificate
- Significant experience of managing, leading, motivating and monitoring
- Debt Recovery/Enforcement Teams.
- Strong interpersonal, negotiation and influencing skills
- The ability to remain calm and collected, and to respond logically in difficult situations.
