Finance Manager - Cash & Ledgers
£30,000 - £35,000 plus heath care and bonus
Do you enjoy working in a fast paced, ever changing environment with market leading brands and companies?
Are you a driven individual with experience of managing a team of credit controllers or ledger staff?
Wallis Lynch are currently working in an exclusive partnership with a fast paced corporate organisation to recruit a manager for the Credit Control/Sales ledger and Purchase ledger teams 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 Financial Controller the successful candidate will be responsible for the accurate production of the Company’s creditor and debtor ledgers, cash forecasting and management and control of a large company credit card/expenses budget. A key requirement will be performing month end closure procedures and analysis, 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.
If you have managed one element of the ledgers previously but not both please do still get in touch, Credit Managers or Sales Ledger Managers looking to broaden their experience and skill set ware encouraged to apply.
The ability to engage with both internal and external stakeholders is essential, as you will be communicating all the way up to MD level. Strong excel skills are a key requirement, as is a previous history of leading a transactional finance team. You will be responsible for a team of 15 with the assistance of two supervisors, this will include their own development via continual training and one to one coaching.
This is a rare opportunity to work for an ambitious company with an enviable culture. Rarely do I sit in reception ready to meet and a line manager and end up wanting to work for the company. There is a buzz about the place you don't find in many companies, and plenty of evidence that they genuinely care for and progress their staff. Great benefits including health care, free parking, days off when the company is doing well and a new bonus scheme on the horizon. The biggest thing for me is that they listen and genuinely take on board staff ideas. For a chance to be part of their journey, contact Claire Maclachlan for more information.
