  • Liaise with internal and external audit to ensure accounts payable compliance with audit requirements

The Candidate 

  • The candidate must have extensive accounts payable experience, an understanding of double entry and ledger accounting as well as experience of managing a team

  • You will not only process information but be aware of how various systems work and integrate with others within the company
  • You should have strong systems skills with a focus on process improvement and re-engineering
