Job description

At Blind Veterans UK, we believe that no one who has served our country should have to battle blindness alone. We offer blind veterans access to the highest quality of services to help them discover life beyond sight loss. 

The Finance team are looking for an experienced, highly numerate and organised Purchase Ledger Assistant to support them in ensuring that all invoices received are processed and paid on time and supplier accounts are up to date. 

Reporting to the Management Accountant, you will be responsible for weekly payment runs using the Finance systems, checking payments against the financial records held, as well as resolving any issues with the bank, where applicable. 

With knowledge of double entry book keeping and accounting concepts, you will also have excellent attention to detail for inputting invoices and payment requisitions.  Good communication skills are also essential, as the role involves regular contact with all staff across the charity and external suppliers. 

Benefits include free life assurance and a generous pension scheme.

If you would like to apply, please email your up to date CV and a supporting statement of no more than 700 words to describe how your knowledge, skills, and experience make you an ideal candidate for the job.
