Credit controllers work in the financial industry and are expected to perform credit management services.
Their major role is to check up on the company’s clients’ existing cover ratings and help the management decide if they should be offered credit. This position requires quite some experience in a financial setting.
A person applying for this position will have to depict these skills (and more) when writing a cover letter, something like this.

Re: Credit Controller Position
Dear Mr. Rodriquez:
I was excited to see the position of a Credit Controller at Acme Financial Control in the Daily Adverts. I am a graduate of finance and have heard about the reputation of your company as being one of the best company in the financial sector. With strong negotiation skills and a firm grasp on financial control strategies, I am positive that I will make a solid contribution to your company.
Since I have been trained to act and think creatively, I possess the capacity to ensure that cash collection targets are met in a proficient way. I am competent at communicating proactively with both external and internal customers and this skill helps me immensely when I perform balance settlement tasks. Additionally, my ability to plan and organize daily credit control activities and promoting strong collaborative relationships with internal sources will be an asset to your firm.
I am eager to learn more about your company and would welcome an opportunity to discuss this position with you in detail for which I will call you next week to set up a meeting time. I can be reached at (000) 132-8546 until then.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
