Due to the departure of the long-serving incumbent, a rare opportunity has arisen for a Senior Accounts Payable clerk to join this well regarded company in a temporary capacity.

Job tasks and responsibilities

Reporting to the Financial Controller, you will manage the majority of the end-to-end accounts payable function and will ensure the accurate and timely payment of supplier invoices. Specifically, you will process between 1200-1800 invoices per month over weekly and monthly payment runs with the assistance of an administrator who you will supervise and guide. Payments will be both in NZD and several foreign currencies so a strong attention to detail and high level of accuracy is required. You will manage the full end-to-end accounts payable process including three-way matching and will also manage staff expenses, petty cash as well as the company cars and fuel cards. In addition?you will prepare monthly accruals and assist with cash flow forecasting. This is a busy, varied and autonomous role that would suit a self-starter.

To be successful in this role, you will be an experienced accounts payable clerk with experience in a busy, high volume environment, potentially in a sole charge capacity or as part of a team managing a portion of a larger ledger. You will need excellent written and verbal communication skills and have prior experience in or the ability to train other staff in AP to ensure there is cover for leave and holidays etc. You will have strong systems skills and will be confident in identifying opportunities for process improvement and efficiency saving. Experience in an automated invoice scanning environment will benefit your application and you will also ideally have sole charge experience or be confident and self-reliant enough to work autonomously in a busy role to meet your deadlines throughout the month. You will have a strong attention to detail and be patient when dealing with other operational staff around missing PO numbers and similar issues.
