Your new role

Specifically remittance management, cash allocation, reporting and control of cash, allowing the successful candidate to gain a clear understanding of their cash flow, management and customer base .

This organisation is embarking on a huge journey of change in every sense, culture, business size, office fit, systems, process, and people, all whilst the environment around us is very uncertain and therefore having business implications. Your role will change, develop, evolve, and you must have a can do attitude, with a problem solving nature and high attention to detail. Ideally in terms of experience, you'll have worked in a business with high volume transactions and have a clear understanding of the importance of managing cash. Being qualified is ideal, but an active ACCA / CIMA student will also be considered providing you have a number of years experience in a relevant position.

What you'll get in return
This job has a competitive salary and benefits package, including a bonus of up to 20%, with a lucrative future which could advance your career quickly, including salary. They also operate a culture which gives a good work life balance, and working a 4 day week may also be an option.
