Due to departmental changes, we have the need for a Finance assistant. This wide-ranging role would suit someone that has already taken the first steps in an industry Accounting or Finance career and is looking to expand on this experience.
The role will primarily be supporting our transactional processing and purchasing functions but will also get involved in financial reporting and statutory accounting. A desire to learn and get involved would be a big plus for the right candidate.
You will have your own duties and responsibilities to manage day to day, but the role will also be ad hoc in nature at times, which means any 2 days will not be the same, and there will be plenty of opportunity to get involved in all types of finance work.
As the Finance Assistant you will be using Oracle as our main accounting system. Your focus will be supporting the transactional processing function, so experience in accounts payable and receivables will be essential, ideally with additional knowledge of making payments. You will take ownership of the company expenses function as a main responsibility and ensuring that the related archiving for these functions is completed.
You will also assist in the company purchasing process, this will include managing the setup of new suppliers and maintaining the supplier database, and administration of our Docusign system. You will also be providing cover in times of absence for key staff for each of these functions, so you will be flexible in your approach.
