Additionally you will be expected to maintain the purchase ledger filing system, ensuring all documentation is filed correctly and deal with the outgoing post duties for the purchase ledger team. You will complete ad hoc tasks as requested by the purchase ledger supervisor whilst maintaining an awareness of the work of the rest of the team so you can actively provide support wherever appropriate.

We require you to have knowledge and experience of payments and invoice processes and an understanding of VAT.
