Our client is busy and getting busier which means that their finance team has lots to do!

They are currently recruiting for someone to join their busy team heading up the Accounts Payable team ensuring that the department runs smoothly and deadlines are met.

Your duties will include;

Overseeing all aspects of the Accounts Payable process
Ensuring that productivity is maximised for all team members providing any necessary training and development where required
Taking responsibility for cashflow forecasting and processing of weekly BACS payments runs alongside ad hoc payments
Looking after corporate credit card transactions and performing monthly reconciliations
Ensuring that suppliers relationships are maintained and addressing any areas of concern or queries and escalating if appropriate
Purchase ledger control accounts
Managing month-end close and adhering to strict deadlines
Implementing achievable KPIs and managing their rollout
Producing regular and ad hoc reports

The successful candidate will be a proven people manager who is experienced in looking after a transactional team.

As well as being able to manage a team, the right individual will be someone who is happy to roll their sleeves up and muck in when necessary.

A keen eye for detail is essential as is the ability to look beyond the day-to-day and spot potential areas of concern ahead of issues arising and put in place appropriate measures to address these.

This role will have autonomy and will suit someone who is self-motivated and not scared to make decisions - with the counsel of the SLT - and run with solutions.

Systems improvements will be a large part of this role in the next 6 - 12 months, so someone with experience of system improvements would be a distinct advantage although not essential.

A good understanding of Excel and fast-paced environments is essential as is someone who believes in partnering with the wider business, not just staying in their finance bubble.

This really is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to head up a small but friendly team in a business that continues to thrive.
