Sales Ledger Accounts Assistant - Permanent - Shepshed - up to £21,000

Macildowie are pleased to be partnered with this leading and longstanding client on their search for an experienced Sales Ledger Accounts Assistant to join their team on a permanent full-time basis.

Reporting directly to the Finance Manager you will be fully accountable for the sales ledger/credit control process, from raising sales invoices to requesting payments from customers. You will possess excellent customer service skills, be a seasoned credit controller and be adaptable to cover other areas of accounts when needed.

You will be able to take full ownership of the sales ledger function for the business, reporting into a bright, determined and bubbly Manager and be working within a team that have fun, laugh and smile, and most importantly are proud of the quality of work they produce. If you are somebody with that similar mentality then you will do well here.

Of course, being fully accountable for the whole Sales Ledger process, you will need to be a self-starter, be prepared to find your way through a not-so-perfect current process, but you will already have the knowledge and proven experience of how a successful sales ledger function works, so you will quickly be able to get to grips with current processes and suggest improvements.

Working within a small finance team, you will be happy to support with your counterpart(s) in Purchase Ledger and provide any additional Financial administration support. You will love a Microsoft package, including a finance functions favourite MS Excel, you don't need to be a wiz (macros etc) but ideally will know your way round a Pivot Table and V-Look Up.

For more detail on the specifics of this role, please apply now and, should your skill set be a match, then we will be in touch in due course.
