Our client, a fast-paced and dynamic organisation, with an impressive customer base and further significant growth in store for the coming years, is looking to source a dedicated and confident Purchase Ledger Assistant to join its talented team.

Working closely with the Accounts Payable Supervisor and Transactional Finance Manager, you will be responsible for assisting in the processing of invoices and managing supplier accounts.
