My client due to increasing demand for their services and therefore business growth are looking to appoint an Accounts Receivable Assistant on a permanent basis. This is a newly created role due to an internal promotion and will report directly into the Accounts Receivable Manager.

This role will support the wider finance team but will primarily focus upon the sales ledger/credit control side. The successful candidate will be responsible for the full sales ledger process from creating clients on the system through to supporting with the admin process on the credit control side. The role will also support on the cash book side and will give an opportunity to get involved within other areas of finance.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who has ideally both sales ledger and maybe some credit control experience to secure a varied, busy finance role where no two days will be the same. The role will also involve elements of administrative duties and will gain exposure to other areas of finance.

The main duties of the role will include:-

-Raising high volumes of sales invoices per week.
-Allocating cash to the sales ledger.
-Dealing with a high volume of complex customer queries.
-Raising credit notes.
-Performing bank reconciliations.
-Processing direct debits mandates.
-Carrying out credit checking and supporting the credit control function as and when required.
-Raising payments.
-Monitoring all sales orders.
-Chasing overdue accounts if required to help out the credit team.
-Issuing monthly statements.
-Supporting the finance team in other areas as and when required.

The ideal candidate will:-

-Have worked within an office environment before and will have a sales ledger/credit control background.
-Be self-motivated and enjoy working in a fast paced environment and enjoy working towards deadlines.
-Have excellent organisational and communication skills.
-Be happy to get involved in an all rounded role and will be comfortable with elements of administration.
