Seymour John are currently working in an exclusive partnership with a market leading organisation to recruit a sales & purchase ledger supervisor on a permanent basis. The role has arisen due to a period of sustained growth, that has resulted in additional staff being required to supplement their growing finance function. This is an excellent time to join the business, during a time of change and expansion.

Reporting directly into the finance manager, the successful candidate will be responsible for the accurate production of the Company’s creditor and debtor ledgers. You will also control the Company’s purchase & sales invoice registers and take the lead on the liaison with Customers & Suppliers regarding payments. A key requirement will be performing month end closure procedures, whilst also ensuring correct and accurate nominal coding and timely processing of all data. You will be required to monitor aged balances and ensure that the debts due, are acted upon. You will be asked to assist with project work to improve processes and controls, so a previous history of improving internal controls to gain greater efficiency would be beneficial.

The ability to engage with both internal and external stakeholders is essential, as you will be communicating all the way up to CEO level. Strong excel skills are a key requirement, as is a previous history of leading a transactional finance team. You will be responsible for two direct reports, this will include their own development via continual training and one to one coaching.
