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 work and report directly into the Accounts Payable manager and supervise a team of 7 Accounts Payable professionals. You’ll be integral in the transitioning of a new Purchase to Pay process using Oracle Fusion. You’ll be based in Leeds in the St John’s office but occasional travel can be expected as required both locally and outside the UK on ad-hoc basis.

You’ll ensure that all AP transactions are processed and recorded in a timely and accurate way whilst also achieving high levels of financial control and governance. You’ll be responsible for timely payments of suppliers across the group. You’ll supervise the AP team and drive continuous improvement and development within the overall department. You’ll support the AP manager in managing the team and setting objectives and coaching the team to high levels of success.  You’ll ensure controls are in place and followed at all times. You’ll reconcile and take corrective action on AP related balance sheet accounts which includes posting corrective journals where needed.  You’ll support the AP manager in preparing the team for change in the future which may involve new systems implementation and acquisitions to name a few. You’ll maintain the supplier master files and control any new suppliers being set up and ensure that any unusual activity is tracked and reported.

Skills Needed

You’ll be an experienced AP supervisor and have experience of working within a large and multinational business and has a detailed understanding of what the best in class P2P processes look like. You’ll have trained and up-skilled teams previously within Account Payable and have experience in large ERP systems and would be nice if you have experience in Oracle fusion but not essential. Intermediate level of Microsoft Office is essential. You’ll have worked with all levels of personnel across different business units and have the ability to prioritise effectively across the various worksteams and communicate to all levels of seniority in doing so. You’ll be a team player and thrive of working in a highly functioning and successful team that act assertively and proactively to achieve goals.

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.
