A medium sized, established service based business located within the South Leeds area are looking to appoint a Junior Sales Ledger/Credit Controller on a permanent basis. This is a newly created role due to an internal promotion and will report directly into the Finance Manager.

-Raising payments.
-Monitoring all sales orders.
-Chasing overdue accounts.
-Issuing monthly statements.
-Maintaining the petty cash.
-Supporting the finance team in other areas as and when required

The ideal candidate will:-

-Have some basic accountancy experience or will have worked within an office environment before or 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.
-Want to start a career in accountancy or finance and will be happy to learn and develop new skills or be happy to continue within a sales ledger/credit control role.

In return you will:-
