About you

Ideally, you'll have previous end to end knowledge of accounts payable cycles and will have proven experience within a high volume payables environment. Knowledge of International AP functions would be desirable. If you have an accounting qualification within this field, that's great, however previous relevant experience is just as important.

You will be proficient in the use of Microsoft, particularly Excel. If you've used other in house finance systems (especially Oracle), that would be an advantage.
You will have proven capability to prioritise work under pressure and deliver to tight deadlines and you will have a positive and pragmatic approach to achieving results along with great attention to detail and pursuit of accuracy.

As a key part of this role involves working with others, you will need to use your effective written and verbal communication skills to engage with people both internally and externally at any level.
