During your time as an Accounts Assistant you’ve done a bit of everything, you might even call yourself a jack of all trades having built your experience and knowledge around both ledgers not just one.

You’ll describe your credit controller style as “someone who has thick skin, can be tough and deal with tricky suppliers and someone who never gives up” basically you never take no for an answer!

This is where your varied skill set comes in - joining the small finance team as the sole credit controller & purchase ledger clerk for the business, you’ll be happy to adapt to the needs and changes during busy periods throughout the year. Some weeks it might be 60% on the SL side others it might only be 30%.

They’re looking for someone who has a good balance of both. If you have experience of chasing debt outside of the UK that will be a bonus too as they also have a number of key accounts overseas.

The company does well in their field and even though there won’t be much room for progression upwards there will always be something for you to be involved in supporting across the UK and Globally.


Day to day tasks will include –

  • Processing supplier invoices, credit notes and payments
  • Statement reconciliations
  • Expenses
  • Chasing outstanding debt in a timely manner
  • Monitoring credit limits and building relationships with customer accounts
  • All sales ledger processing


Key Requirements –

  • A good level of experience across Sales Ledger, Credit Control and Purchase Ledger
  • International experience would be beneficial
  • 9am – 5pm - flexibility for 1 day working from home
  • Parking
