We have a number of vacancies for the above role, mostly based in central Bristol but one is primarily based at our site at Langford.  Please state your preference in your application. 
 
The purpose of the role is to process all Faculty and/or Professional Services Divisions purchase orders, invoices, expense claims and fees through the University’s Integrated Purchasing System (currently Proactis, and MyERP from 2018) in a timely manner, dealing with any related queries as they arise, and to ensure all expenditure is in accordance with the University of Bristol Financial Regulations.  You will also process other ad hoc expenditure using other University approved processes e.g. Purchasing Card, Cash Passports. These tasks require data analysis and therefore good analytical and problem-solving skills with the ability to then make appropriate decisions.
