Accounts Receivable Manager - 6-8 month contract - North Birmingham - to £37k plus benefits

Our Client

We are working with a high-growth, market-leading business with their UK Head Office in North Birmingham. Due to the increasing size and complexity of the organisation and its financial transaction processes, we are now seeking an Accounts Receivable Manager to join them for a period of 6-8 months to support the transition to more efficient systems and improved debt management procedures.

The Role

The role of Accounts Receivable Manager will be highly-visible and pivotal to the on-going development of future-proof processes and procedures within the finance team. Skills and experience required for this role are as follows:

  • Working within a complex, high-value billing environment
  • Engaging with senior managers to improve controls within collections procedures
  • Proven track record in the reduction of aged debt
  • Team management and monitoring of 'best practice' within the sales ledger function
  • Risk mitigation and improvement of invoicing accuracy
  • Preforming a client facing role to improve lines of communication and subsequently reducing debtor days
  • Working closely with various partners to ensure new business is administered within tight and accurate invoicing parameters
  • Creating a more proactive query-management system and improving issue resolution timelines

This will be a challenging and rewarding interim role, critical to a business that is likely to continue to acquire and integrate further ledgers over the next few months.

The Person

The successful individual will be a seasoned Accounts Receivable Manager, with a strong and proactive approach to problem solving and process improvement. We seek an individual who is able to demonstrate both practical 'hands on' skills in sales ledger and billing issue resolution, and a more strategic understanding of the AR function's role within the wider commercial environment.

You will be available to start ASAP, and prepared to commit to a 6-8 month timeline initially. As further projects develop however, there may be scope for an extension to this.
