Head of Accounts Payable (6 month Fixed Term Contract)

Why is a role in our Accounts Payable team the next step for you?

As the Head of Purchase to Pay, you will ensure that the end to end P2P process is based on best practice. This will be done through optimising Oracle to deliver efficient and effective procedures. You will ensure that both process and system is fully embedded across the Worldpay community. You will build mechanisms to ensure that compliance to process is continually monitored and exceptions are captured and addressed.

How will you add value on a day to day basis?

You will be responsible for ensuring our valued suppliers are paid, reliably, and on time. Adopting a continuous improvement approach, you will ensure controls are embedded that facilitate an efficient month end close process (in line with finance policies). You will own the production and delivery of a monthly management information pack ensuring operational KPIs are tracked and measured. You will ensure delivery of a cash flow forecasting system based upon projected expenditure analysis.

Managing a team of up to 5 analysts, you will ensure all day to day management and training requirements are met whilst promoting an environment of accountability and challenge resolution.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

In this role, you will need to have solid experience of managing P2P at both, a hands on and strategic level. You will have worked with an ERP system (ideally Oracle R12) before and demonstrate a high level of understanding about business processes, from a review, change and implementation perspective. You will ideally have experience of working in a finance function and have a good level of finance literacy.

You will be a logical, methodical and practical individual who will be focussed on delivery through influencing key stakeholders and prioritising key projects. You will be comfortable with technology and be able to deliver process changes through collaborating with others. Experience of working in a fast paced environment where change is a constant, is a must.

Lastly, this role requires someone who is ideally degree educated.
