Accounts Payable Assistant
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council is a small Council with big values. We are committed to ensuring our services are delivered to the highest possible standard and we put the customer at the forefront of everything we do. By working for us you will become part of the team and will play your part in serving our community.
We are currently recruiting for an Accounts Payable Assistant to join the Central Creditors team.
The Central Creditors manage the complete ‘purchase to pay’ process within a small team using multiple systems (eProcurement, Finance, Records Management) so the ability to learn quickly and collaborate is essential.
As part of the Central Creditors team you will ensure that invoices received by the Council are processed efficiently, and in accordance with VAT, Construction Industry and Late Payment Legislation.
In addition to processing invoices, you will also help to maintain the eProcurement system by on-boarding suppliers, maintaining online catalogues and assisting with orders raised across the Council.
Central Creditors take pride in constantly improving, and finding ways to be more effective, therefore being able to embrace and adapt to change is crucial. We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual who works well as part of a team, can use their own initiative, and can actively contribute new ideas to future developments.
The right mix of skills and ‘can-do’ attitude is more important to us than experience, as full training will be provided.
We are specifically looking for someone with excellent IT skills, who thrives working in a team, and enjoys providing exceptional customer service.
For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Naomi Beckett, Purchase to Pay supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or Matthew Wallbank, Creditors and Procurement Manager at email@example.com
