An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Accounts Payable Team within the Finance Department as a full-time Accounts Payable Assistant. The Accounts Payable Team plays an important part in supporting day to day business operations of the University by operational transacting and by overseeing and governing the Procure to Pay Cycle of the University. We are seeking to appoint an experienced individual with strong team ethics and a commitment to delivering excellent customer service.

The University has a mixture of self-serve users and a central finance provision. As Accounts Payable Assistant you will be responsible for your own portfolio of Faculties and Services and will work very closely with a Finance Business Partner to support day to day business operations. Your role will be to advise and offer guidance in all aspects of the Procure to Pay Cycle. You will be a highly motivated individual, who is committed to delivering individual and team KPIs. Your role involves working as part of a team, therefore being a strong team player is essential. Significant transactional experience is necessary as you will be responsible for transactional processing of invoices, credit notes, expense claims and purchase order requests to support the University's Procure-to-Pay Cycle.

The role holder will spend part of their working week in the office and the remainder of their time at home in line with the University's agile working policy.

For informal enquiries about the role, please contact Vicky Tron or Joanne Farquhar, Accounts Payable Coordinator via email or telephone 0191 515 2018.
