Accounts Payable Assistant

I’m interested


Leeds - St Johns

Contract type


Job description

This is a fantastic opportunity to be an important part of a brand new Finance Shared Service Centre (FSSC) for William Hill as part of the Accounts Payable team, in the centre of Leeds. You’ll have the opportunity to evolve in this opportunity and have the support of senior leadership to develop professionally within the Accounts Payable function in Leeds.

About us

With over 16,000 people worldwide, we make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be experts within a leading FTSE 250 company. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.

Your role in the team

You’ll report into the Accounts Payable Supervisor as part of a team of 7. This includes moving to a new Purchase to Pay process using Oracle Fusion based in our St John’s office.

You’ll be responsible for ensuring the efficient and accurate processing of AP transactions by scanning and verifying invoices and resolving queries on a timely and controlled basis. You’ll scan invoices into the Purchase to Pay System (P2P) to ensure correct matching against authorised purchase orders. You’ll ensure that all invoices are processed in line with the P2P process and resolve any issues on invoices accordingly to allow settlement within payment terms. You’ll work closely with senior management and report anything unusual on transactions in a timely basis and take an active approach to continuous improvement in your role.

Skills Needed

It is ideal that you’ll have worked in an accounts payable team in a large organisation and have an understanding of the basic controls and fundamentals of an accounts payable function but it isn’t essential. Experience of working with large ERP systems is preferred but not required. You’ll need to have basic MS Office skills. You’ll need to have the desire to learn and expand your knowledge of the accounts payable principles and processes and take a proactive approach in learning new skills to help achieve and exceed daily business goals. You’ll have worked in an office environment and have the interest in expanding your skill set to become more specialised within a leading organisation such as William Hill.

William Hill in Leeds.

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.
