Role Description

About the Finance Professional Service Unit and Accounts Payable

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.

About the Role

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 You

The candidate will have at least 2 years’ 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.

The successful applicant will have exciting opportunities for career development in this key position, and to support world leading research and education, from within a supportive team and environment.

Our Values

Our shared, stated values help to define who we are and underpin everything we do: Ambition; Impact; Respect; and Community. Find out more here. We aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together and realise their full potential.

Diversity and Inclusion

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

Flexible Working

We are currently piloting hybrid working arrangements until April 2022.  This means the majority of our staff are spending between 40% and 60% of their time working from the office where their job roles allow.

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.
