I am presenting you with the opportunity to step into a well established market with a strong customer base.
JCB – About us
JCB Finance Ltd (formerly JCB Credit Ltd) was incorporated in February 1970. The Company’s office, The Mill, is located on the edge of Rocester Village directly opposite JCB’s World Headquarters. JCB Finance’s aim is to bring state of the art finance and payment options to the point of sale anywhere in the world for JCB equipment.
However, the Company is also able to finance other equipment, providing it is not a new machine that is directly competitive with any of the JCB range. Over the years, this policy has seen JCB Finance not only become the largest owner of JCB equipment in the world, but the Company also funds a wide range of other capital purchases for customers, including almost every type of construction plant available and many items of agricultural equipment. Our customers have ranged from owner-operators, through small and medium sized companies, to PLC’s which are household names, Local Authorities and even Government departments.
During its successful history, JCB Finance has continued to expand its range of finance products from two basic facilities – Asset Purchase and Leasing – to the widest available from a specialist plant finance company. Each of these is designed to give the customer the tax, payment option, cash flow and/or accounting benefits which best suit his particular circumstances. Another facility which has been developed relative to customers’ needs is Return to Invoice insurance, commonly available on cars, this new insurance is now available for the first time on plant.
All of this is backed-up by a dedicated field force strategically located throughout Great Britain, plus the comprehensive administrative support located at The Mill.

“Why is this position necessary?”
We want you to understand the reasoning behind our decisions! Below you will find an answer to the question: “Why is this position necessary?”
Today’s financial market, as you may well know, is quite volatile and the more prices fluctuate the more the value of stock follows. In such a volatile market, no company can afford to have a long time between delivering products and receiving payments for those products.
Nowadays there are more payment options than ever before, however as an entrepreneur, we want to offer as many payment methods as possible.
Studies have found that companies and websites providing four or more payment methods other than credit cards had a sales conversion rate 12 percent higher than those offering just one payment option in addition to credit cards.
In other words, the more payment options a company or website offers, the more payment processing that company or website does and therefore the sales rate goes up.
Our In-house statistics have found that over 70 percent of our foreign customers prefer the “Pay by Check” method.
At present we have a high number of orders from the US that cannot be put on hold. As stated previously many of these orders are to be paid through the “Pay by Check” method. There are quite a few problems with this payment method, the main one being “International Checks” have a 28 working days cashing period. The volatile of the financial market does not allow such a long period between delivering products and receiving payments for the deliveries made.
These are just a few of the reasons behind the idea of opening the “In-house” Escrow Agent position.
