Collections & Recoveries

Our Team

Extensive Expertise

Arum’s reputation is for working closely with clients to help them deliver success in the long term. Our culture comes from our team of strong credit management professionals who have extensive expertise plus strategic, technical, and operational experience across all areas of debt collections and recoveries. Our practitioners are able to understand our clients’ particular business challenges because many have previously held similar responsibilities.

Arum is unique both in terms of our independence from any collections and recoveries software vendor and in our depth of domain experience. Our team has hundreds of man years of experience in collections and recoveries both from an industry practitioner and from a software vendor perspective. The range of experience – from senior thought leaders with an average of 30 years’ experience to consultants with less than 10 years’ experience – means that we can offer teams tailored to clients’ needs.

As well as outstanding subject matter experts in debt collection and recoveries, the Arum team possess a range of other skills and experience that add significant value to the Company and our clients.  These include multi-lingual capability and experience of working in over 50 countries.

We are a growing business and are always looking for new talent, so please keep an eye on our social media channels to see which roles we’re currently hiring for or send your CV to careers@arum.co.uk.
