Accounts Payable

Accounts Rock star!

We are on the hunt for an Accounts Rock star. Ideally, you would have spent a few years in Accounts and or Administration roles. You will have worked in larger systems so you will know your PO’s from your payroll and be comfortable talking to our suppliers or customers on a call, even if they are late paying.

The core role will be in Accounts Payable, but it will be so much more. This role will be fully trained on our payroll processes, so that you are the backup and support for our more than 350 staff. There will also be different levels of administration and accounting support also required. We are looking for that person who can put their hand up and say throw that my way! We need someone who is able to do the detailed work, but also question why we do things this way?
