job description

A historic brand.

A kind and understanding manager who trusts their staff.

A nice office environment and a company with a long average tenure.

You'll feel like you have walked in to somewhere special from the moment you enter this company's home, based near the Melbourne CBD. People smile to each other in the halls, everybody says hello, there are no airs and graces and everyone shares the same space and pleasantries regardless of seniority.

No, you're not in a hip IT start up in a warehouse...

You're in one of Australia's largest, most iconic brands, famous the world over and instantly recognisable as a quintessential part of Australian Culture. The name itself will conjure up images of childhood trips and shared memories. Everybody will understand what your company does and why it's great.

The job:

An all round accounts payable role in a delightful team of hardworking, competent individuals.

You will be responsible for:

- Processing invoices in to the system, using three way match methodology.

- Carrying out supplier statement reconciliations, using v-lookups and pivot tables.

- Handling vendor queries, solving vendor queries. From large utility companies to boutique manufacturers, you'll keep the supply chain flowing.

- Handling internal queries, chasing up those pesky PO numbers.

- Accruals and other adjustments.

- Assisting in month end.

If you want to progress...

The finance manager is keen on providing opportunities for all their staff to learn and develop if they so wish. This means you could find yourself learning some general ledger and general accounting tasks and growing your skill-set.

If you want to do solely accounts payable...

That's fine as well, the team is a mixture of people who eventually want to be accountants and people who want to do accounts payable as a career. It's a melting pot of different ambitions and everyone is taken on their own merits.

What sort of experience do you need?

For this role, you'll need to have some experience working on a large ERP system such as SAP, Oracle, Navision, Dynamics or Infor.

You'll be an experienced AP specialist with some understanding of where accounts payable fits in the entire organisation.

You'll have some good Excel skills and be able to do vlookups and pivot tables.

Your attention to detail will be in tip-top shape and you'll be able to spot mistakes in the payables.

Communication skills are important and you will have great communication skills on the telephone, on email and face to face.

When should I apply?

No time like the present, there's a button on this page.

Will I hear back from you?

Of course, a real person will read your CV and application, you'll get a response by the end of January.

Thank you for your application in advance, all applicants will be responded to with the outcome of their application.
