Job Title: Accounts Assistant
Pay Bracket: up to £24,000 DOE + Study Support

Our client is a market leading manufacturing company based in Preston with an international presence, who are diverse and ambitious - growing both organically and through acquisition. They have recently been named one of the North West's fastest growing companies, expanding over 200% in the past 10 years. We are looking for an accounts assistant to join a close-knit team where you will work alongside the management accountant. This is a company where you will be able to progress and take on further responsibility over time, with AAT study support on offer and training provided.
The team are down to earth and take the opportunity to develop their staff, with the lead management accountant progressing from a purchase ledger position. This role is open to both entry-level candidates and experienced accounts clerks who are looking for a new challenge into 2022, with knowledge of processing invoices being ideal.

What does the role involve?
Reporting directly into the management accountant, you will have a well-rounded role, between purchase and sales ledger, with the opportunity to be involved in month end procedures.

  • Managing the purchase ledger - matching, batching and coding of invoices, entering data into the company's bespoke system
  • Bank reconciliations on a daily basis
  • Managing and resolving supplier and customer queries
  • Managing the sales ledger and supporting the credit controller in chasing overdue payments
  • Setting up new supplier accounts and ensuring details are kept up to date
  • Ad hoc support for other team members and assisting the management accountant


Who would be the right fit?
This role would suit someone who wants to build a career in accounting, either being a current AAT studier or a junior candidate who would like to receive study support. Experience of accounts payable is highly advantageous but not essential for success in this role - with lots of training on offer.

  • A friendly character who will communicate well internally amongst colleagues and externally - handling supplier and customer relations and representing the company on a daily basis with pride
  • A minimum of 2 years' experience in accounts for the top salary bracket, with no previous experience required for junior candidates.
  • A team player who will work well within the existing group and will look to help others where possible
  • Intermediate experience within Microsoft Excel
