Job description


An opportunity has arisen to join our finance team, acting as the Accounts Payable Supervisor, providing a vital part of St Mungo’s services to clients.


In this busy role you will be a key member of the Financial Control team, managing a team of three, ensuring that invoices and credit notes are logged and paid on a timely basis.


You will make sure that queries from suppliers and colleagues are answered promptly and in a helpful manner.


You will timely and accurately report as the effectiveness and efficiency of the Accounts Payable department and take whatever actions those reports show as required and lead on the constant improvement of the systems, processes and reporting of the Accounts payable team.


This role is key to ensuring adherence to St Mungo’s financial control policies with respect to supplier payments including the set up of Suppliers, the maintenance of Supplier details, and the maintenance of the Purchase Order and Invoice Approval hierarchies.


You will become the expert in understanding the Accounts Payable processes.


Your role is not only to manage the Payments Assistants but also to develop their capabilities and knowledge including ensuring each has a development plan, regular one to ones and timely annual appraisals. The skills of the Payments Assistants must be such that the department can function when the Payments Supervisor is away.


This role is likely to suit somebody with considerable experience gained in a busy Accounts Payable environment with proven supervisory experience and change accomplishments.


We are looking for someone who is a good team player with strong customer service and communication skills and is comfortable in processing large volumes of work. You should also be able to demonstrate good attention to detail, numeracy and excel skills as well as the ability to analyse processes and make suggestions for improvement.


In return, you can look forward to benefits including a pension scheme and a whole range of initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. On top of that, we’ll give you all the support you need to develop your skills and career.


If you believe that you have what we are looking for, and have an interest in working for a charity which makes a real difference to the lives of people who are homeless, we encourage you to apply.


Please ensure that you read the comprehensive job description and person specification for the role. When applying please address the person specification, clearly setting out how you meet the requirements for the role.
