Brighter. Bolder. Birmingham.

Birmingham City Council is the largest local authority in Europe – and we’re on the cusp of something truly special. With an annual spend of over £3billion we’re gearing up for major events such as the 2022 Commonwealth Games and the creation of HS2. Championing economic growth for the city, we’re determined to create a brighter future for all our citizens and at the heart of this ambition lies our Finance team. Join us and you won’t just improve life for 1.1 million people, you’ll help Birmingham become one of the world’s most successful, sustainable cities.

Our vision is for Finance to be a best-in-class function that’s agile, innovative and proactive, as well as diverse and inclusive. This is an incredibly exciting time for us; the opportunities for you to contribute and influence, to make bold and significant changes, are endless. As we change finance services to give customers more control and add value through data analytics and insight, you’ll be at the forefront of achievement and progress.

As an Accounts Payable Specialist, you’ll be part of a fast-paced, high volume transactional team (approximately 407,000 invoices paid per annum). Reporting into the Processing Team Manager, you’ll tackle the administration of procure to pay processes, dealing with invoice payments, handling complex supplier queries and organising the workload of your team.

You’ll strive to provide fantastic customer service by getting the best from staff. That means encouraging great performance through supervision, mentoring and 1:1 meetings. You’ll already have experience in Accounts Payable, ideally in a similar role. That means you’ve got well-developed numerical and computer skills, including Word and Excel. But this is about more than understanding finance software. You’ll also need excellent people skills – you will care, be passionate and motivated to provide an efficient, professional service.

This is more than your next finance role. It’s a chance to create a brighter, bolder Birmingham
