We were in the top 5 companies in Building’s Good Employer Guide 2013 – join us to find out why!

We believe that happy, well-trained and motivated staff lead to a better working environment and better customer care. That’s why we prioritise employee engagement and value our staff’s feedback and it’s a big part of why we were featured in the top 5 Employer Guide.

As a specialist building services provider, we have offices around the country and are continually expanding our teams, with ambitious growth plans for the group. That’s why we require the help of a driven, talented accountant/credit controller with construction industry experience.

This is new role within our Building Automation division, providing financial support to project teams. Key duties will include:

  • Monitoring project budgets and providing regular reports to the management board.
  • Producing monthly applications for payment and following up to ensure certification and payment.
  • Owning the credit control system, including ensuring credit limits are maintained and appropriate action is taken with defaulting customers.
  • Managing retentions and ensuring they are recovered at the right time.
  • Managing subcontractor payments.
  • Providing support to our Financial Controller and having input into monthly management accounts.

 

Experience

Construction industry experience is essential for this role, and competence in Sage 200 and Sage Construct is desirable. The ability to work as part of a team with a group of busy project managers in multiple locations is vital, so either a good sense of humour or a stern bedside manner would be an asset.

 

Hours

The post will require a 5-day-a-week presence and hours are flexible. We would consider part time for the right candidate.

 

Package

Salary £30k (pro rata if applicable).
