Accounts Payable Supervisor – Bristol – 12 month+ FTC
An exciting opportunity for an Accounts Payable Supervisor to join our finance team, leading the Accounts Payable Function.
Role: Accounts Payable Supervisor
Hours: Full Time
Term: 12-16 month fixed term contract
Vacancy Reference: 405-BBL
We are looking for an Accounts Payable Supervisor who will be responsible for the end-to-end accounts payable processes including our employee expense claim process, supported by two Assistants. This is a 12-16 month fixed term contract to cover maternity leave.
This role is a busy role and will see you working closely with other members of our finance team to ensure that a consistent and reliable service is offered across the firm. On a daily basis you will work with support from the Assistants and can expect to be involved in ensuring the timely processing of all purchase invoices with correct coding and VAT treatment, ensuring payments are made when due, reconciling supplier statements, processing internal expense claims, processing business credit card spend and maintaining numerous purchase order logs.
More generally you will take ownership of overall Accounts Payable processes, suggesting improvements and changes to the Group Financial Controller and managing their implementation across the firm. You will maintain a close eye on the Creditors ledger, chasing any unauthorised invoices across the firm, providing summaries and explanation of any unpaid amounts and escalating any issues to the Group Financial Controller as required.
You will also be expected to help other members of the team on an ongoing basis and help to provide cover when other members of the team are not in the office.
It is an integral part of this role that you comply with information security and all firm policies and procedures.
We are looking for someone with at least 4-5 years proven Accounts Payable / Purchase Ledger experience.
If you have experience of the end-to-end AP process then we would love to hear from you, especially if you have a drive to work collaboratively with contacts across the firm to ensure best practice is followed consistently.
We need someone friendly & approachable, who will relish the opportunity to take ownership of the Accounts Payable area and will inspire confidence in the senior finance team that they ‘have it covered’ through consistently delivering high quality work.
This role is a busy role and as such, you should be able to work with minimum supervision whilst being confident to escalate issues if required. Excellent attention to detail is essential to ensure that you are consistently delivering high quality work. Also key to the role will be solid communication skills, which will be needed across all levels within the firm. Within this role, you will of course work in an accurate and methodical way in everything that you do and become a valued team member in our friendly and supportive team.
