Our people are the Allwag difference and one of the main reasons our clients are so loyal.

Our growth and success since we started in 1999 is the result of our constant innovation and great customer service, leading to repeat business and referrals. We build excellent relationships with clients based on trust and reliability. Working with clients rather than simply for them, we make sure we are their supplier of choice every time.

We feel that each role within Allwag Promotions offers the perfect opportunity for someone to make a real difference and achieve great job satisfaction as a result of their efforts. So if you enjoy a challenge, like being busy and are determined to meet customers’ needs, this could be perfect for you.

Allwag Promotions is an Investors in People Gold status employer, so fantastic career opportunities, and full training and support are provided. We are proud to have been awarded 'Employer of the Year" 2017 by the British Promotional Merchandise Association.

Oh, and you must like cake and the odd lunch at The Blue Strawberry!

CURRENT JOB OPPORTUNITIES:

Due to a recent promotion, we are currently recruiting for a motivated, flexible and organised Sales Ledger/Credit Controller who will work as part of both our Production and Operations/Accounts team to ensure all orders are despatched and delivered on time to enable our invoice processing to run smoothly.

You will be responsible for progress chasing orders with suppliers to ensure delivery deadlines are achieved. More importantly, you must have an eye for detail to check despatch notifications as well as a calm, practical approach to resolve any issues with deliveries.

Unfortunately, not all of the clients pay as timely as we would like, so your Credit control skills will be needed to chase all outstanding debts to avoid them being passed to our Director for litigation.

Skills required
