Axon Moore is currently recruiting for a highly successful Private Equity backed business based just outside of Manchester City Centre.

This is a standalone, end to end purchase ledger role, reporting in to our clients Finance Manager with additional technical support from a Management Accountant and day to day process support from a separate purchase ledger team.

  • Ability to manage and maintain positive relationships both internally and with external suppliers
  • Make procurement card payments
  • Set up and prepare the BACS payments
  • Set up Direct Debits and manage Direct Debit accounts.

Whilst this isn't a high volume purchase ledger position, you will have complete ownership of the process and ledgers.

Skills/Experience required:
  • It is essential to have previous purchase ledger experience in a similar role
  • An individual with an SME background is highly desirable
  • Software – exchequer and synergist – experience preferable but not essential
  • Good level of IT skills including Microsoft Excel
