Do you want to utilise your current finance assistant skills and AAT qualification on a daily basis?

We, at PTS are looking for a Rebate and Contract Claim Financial Analyst to join our collaborative Finance Team based in Crick - Northampton. Reporting to the Rebate and Contract Claim Manager, you will be joining a dedicated team of 11. You will be responsible for all activities required to reduce claim arrears and resolve supplier contract related queries. This opportunity has great variation, where you will be responsible for understanding various supplier/customer contractual agreements and ensuring the right value of contract support is claimed. With your excellent communication skills and strong ability to review and analyse numerical data, you will ensure: all valid claims are raised, cash is collected and any queries preventing cash collection are resolved within a timely manner.

Duties include:

  • Monitor the receipt of cash against supplier claims, ensuring that any payment issues are quickly identified and resolved.
  • Ensure the level of supplier arrears is managed to an acceptable level and within agreed payment terms, with analysis created to ensure pro-active chasing of outstanding amounts.
  • Investigate contract claim queries raised by suppliers and liaise with them (face to face, telephone or via email) to resolve any issues.
  • Liaise with various internal departments (e.g Estimating, Contracts, Commercial) and ensure that any issues that are identified are fixed at source in order to prevent recurrence.
  • Provide regular updates to senior management of supplier arrears including actions taken and planned.
  • Assist with month end and mid month reporting.
You will be working within a proactive, fast paced environment with lots of opportunity to progress. This is a fantastic opportunity to utilise your strong and excel skills (understanding reports, pivot tables, formulas) and accountancy/finance assistance knowledge. Already familiar with financial systems, it would be beneficial to have knowledge of Wintegrate. However with your drive and determination, your team will support you in using this system.

Along with the above, you’ll also have:

  • Strong data management and organisational skills
  • Strong tenacious and diligent in following up actions
  • The initiative to identify solutions and drive actions from other departments and suppliers
Our strong family values and 'cornerstones' lie at the heart of the success of our journey - from family business to forward thinking Company. If matching your ambition to our culture is an exciting prospect, there's never been a better time to join us.
