What you’ll need:
We’d like to see your extensive experience in accounts payable preferably in some form of leadership or advanced duties. Part of this role will be to lead, develop and most importantly motivate the team in place by ‘leading from the front’ (lead by example) so they are delivering on our targets but also developing the ‘partnership’ relationships we have with our suppliers.
Other key skills you’ll need include:
- Previous team leadership experience, able to motivate and mentor other personnel
- Advanced Excel skills
- Pro-active, decisive and resilient attitude with the ability to respond/ adapt to a demanding environment in a positive manner
