Sewell Wallis are currently recruiting for an Accounts Assistant to join a well established, growing business based on the outskirts of Harrogate. This is an excellent time to join a large, well respected, thriving business that aims to promote from within where possible.

You will join a friendly, long standing team that reward and recognise their team members. This is a new role that has been created due to an internal promotion, reporting directly into the Transactional Services Manager.

The ideal candidate will have an understanding of the billing process within a fast paced, high volume environment. However, candidates that have more general transactional finance experience will also be considered alongside applicants that are more junior, with maybe 6 months plus experience within an accountancy or finance role.

Along with a competitive salary and the opportunity to develop and progress you will have access to an excellent benefits package and a great working environment. Hybrid working will also be offered after a short training period has been completed.

The successful candidate will have full responsibility for ensuring that customer invoices are correctly processed and allocated in order to allow for collection and payment of monies. This will include:-

-Creating credits and re-bills to ensure accurate billing on a daily basis.
-Amending pricing and billing details.
-Dealing with all queries, complaints and account amendments.
-Communicating with internal and external customers to gather and update information.
-Supporting with and provide assistance around any reporting that is required.
-Analysing billings to identify trends and investigating as necessary.
-Sending billed data consumption reports, copy invoices and billing performance reports to customers as required.
-Managing the cancellation process and ensuring all relevant parties are updated and informed from a data perspective.
-Helping with the contracts side and ensuring contractual obligations are met if a contract is cancelled or amended.
-Looking at and questioning processes and suggesting areas of improvement

The ideal candidate will:-

- Have some finance experience and ideally billing/cash management/sales ledger/legal cashiering would make the learning period easier.
- Possess excellent IT skills particularly in Excel and database management.
- Have strong analytical skills and be able to identify areas of improvement and errors.
- Have excellent communication skills.
- Have Attention to detail and ability to work to tight deadlines.
