A medium sized, established service based business located within the Wakefield area is looking to appoint a Part Time Accounts Administrator on a permanent basis. This is a part time position, offering up to 24 hours and will report directly into an extremely friendly and approachable Credit 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 but will be mainly focused around ensuring that the cash is posted within given timescales and will involve resolving queries.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking for reduced hours but still wants an involved and busy role.

-Opening new accounts and supporting the credit control function as and when required.

-Be self-motivated and enjoy working in a fast paced environment and enjoy working towards deadlines.
-Have excellent organisational and communication skills.
-Be happy answering the phone and will be committed to the role.

In return you will:-

- Free onsite parking.
