A busy and varied role, as the Accounts Payable Administrator you will process payments and invoices for over 120 suppliers, ensuring credit notes are approved in timely manner and that agreed payment cycles are met, chasing outstanding invoices as needed. Loading payments into the banking system, you will work closely with auditors, directors and other departments regarding anomalies, issues or reports, ensuring the month end period is closed out on time.
