Purchase Ledger Finance Assistant
Formed from the merger of Sussex Coast and Sussex Downs Colleges, East Sussex College Group is a powerful new educational resource that will transform countless futures. We will give the young people of the county the best possible A-levels and technical qualifications, deliver apprenticeships and adult community learning fit for the modern world, and create a highly skilled and adaptable workforce. Effective financial management will be central to our success – placing you at the heart of everything we do as you join us from the very beginning.
Taking ownership of our purchase ledger, you will ensure that we efficiently process supplier invoices and make all payments on the due date. This will involve setting suppliers up on our system, checking invoices for accuracy and acting as the first point of contact for creditors’ queries, so you will require a strong blend of organisational and interpersonal skills.
Passionate about continuous improvement and capable of enhancing our systems and procedures, you will bring sound relevant experience within a similarly complex organisation. Chances are you will be working towards your AAT qualification, and you will definitely be well versed in evolving legislation, exceptionally computer literate and adept at prioritising a conflicting workload. A background in further education would naturally be useful, but more importantly you should be skilled in using complex databases and spreadsheets, very team-spirited in your approach and capable of hitting the ground running.
