Role Description

Cranfield University’s world-class expertise, large-scale facilities and unrivalled industry partnerships is creating leaders in technology and management globally. Learn more about Cranfield and our unique impact here.

The Finance Professional Service Unit welcomes applications from Purchase Ledger Clerks.

About Finance

The academic activity of the University is supported by a wide range of service departments. The Finance Professional Service Unit (PSU) role is to ensure that all financial data is processed correctly, timely and accurately to enable payments to be made and received while ensuring that all stakeholders, including CMDL, CIM, CIC, CEIL, CQSL, Cranfield Holdings and CITH are provided with required services in accordance with University Partnership Agreements.

Accounts Payable (A/P) are an integral part of the Finance PSU and are responsible for the processing of supplier invoices, student and staff expenses.

The Team sits within the Procurement and Accounts Payment Department, and, working with Procurement staff, provides a collaborative approach to managing the end-to-end Purchase to Payment (P2P) process for the University.

About the Role

The successful candidate, as part of the Accounts Payable team, will assist with sorting, distributing and responding to mailbox enquiries, scanning and capturing invoices and other documents, matching invoices to orders, working from the Agresso Task Bar, monitoring unpaid invoices, collating various payment runs and occasionally processing staff/student expense claims.

Additionally, the post holder will be primarily responsible for the payment of Foreign Invoices which fall outside of the Agresso Payment System.

At this time, the post holder will be expected to work from home until the University re-opens to staff, when the role will be based on Cranfield Campus.

About You

You will have experience of working in a busy Accounts Payable environment, managing the day-to-day processing of invoices, expenses and payment requests.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills: able to communicate and engage with both suppliers and staff and at all levels. You will also need to have good numerical and written skills.

The University uses the Agresso financial system so experience of using this package would be desirable.

In return, the successful applicant will have exciting opportunities for career development in this key position, and to support world leading research and education, joining a supportive team and environment.

Diversity and Inclusion

Our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has shown that women and minority ethnic groups are currently underrepresented within the university and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from these groups.

Flexible Working

We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and whether a position can be carried out at any of our locations.  We commit to exploring the possibilities for each role. Find out more here.
