Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Systems Accountant - Exeter - £ Neg DOE

We love recruiting for this business. Why? Because they’re a technology business that are absolutely at the top of their game and that’s easily demonstrated by their formidable growth. There aren’t many businesses that can boast that in the South West and particularly in this climate. The business is professionally run by a senior management team that base everything they do on impeccable customer service. And they’re a great company to recruit for too; open minded, efficient and decisive which means that their vacancies are filled promptly and without unnecessary processes. 

This time they’re on the lookout for skilled Systems Accountant to take full responsibility for the company’s new accounts receivable/billing systems. Reporting to the Director of Finance (placed by Trial Balance Consulting), this is an exciting and pivotal (brand-new), position where the successful candidate will design and implement a system from the ground up. The Systems Accountant will ensure that the system not only runs to perfection, but also train the finance team and other department heads in its efficient use. That will likely entail KPI reporting systems, error monitoring and the ongoing development of system improvements. You’ll be the onsite expert for all accounts receivable and billing inquiries. It’s a new position and that will allow the successful candidate a high level of autonomy in creating new AR and billing processes and procedures. 

Who’s right for the challenge? Probably, but not essentially a professionally qualified Systems Accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), but most definitely somebody with previous experience in systems implementation and a thorough knowledge of the challenges faced by a medium-large sized services sector business where all AR and billings are concerned. You’ll need strong knowledge in statutory frameworks and very strong IT skills. It’s going to be a challenging, but extremely rewarding position where the successful candidate will be an essential point of contact for all queries and support assistance. 

The rewards here are big as you might expect with a high profile, fast growth business. Most of our placed candidates have enjoyed rapid and continued career development and the business rightly understand that its future is entirely attributed to its people. For further details and to apply, contact Dan Saunders quoting reference DS6964.
