We’re looking for a customer-focused individual with energy, experience and a strong sense of purpose to join us as a Purchase Ledger Officer
The UK has a housing problem. This affects every one of us, because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution. You could be too.
One of the UK’s leading housing associations, Catalyst is here to make a purposeful difference by providing housing solutions for those who can’t afford a home without our help. We offer a wide range of homes, for rent, part ownership or purchase. By doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.
We're at a particularly exciting point in our story, having recently merged with another large housing association, Aldwyck. The merger makes us stronger and more able to deliver our social purpose - in every part of our organisation.
We’re always seeking to do better. If you are too, read on.
You will be closely involved in the daily input of data to the accounting system, and will resolve technical queries as requested by the Purchase Ledger Manager or Head of Financial Services. You will take responsibility for checking payment submissions processed through the eProcurement system (WeBuy) and on general payment forms, focussing on the weekly payment run schedule. Where mistakes are identified, you will educate relevant business users to avoid repeats. Reconcile supplier statements and respond to queries from suppliers and budget holders in a professional and efficient way. Make sure trade creditor balances are reconciled quarterly each month end for every Catalyst entity. Check staff expenses and mileage claims processed through the eExpenses system and review corporate credit card submissions each month end.
You are passionate about delivering excellent customer experience every time, by being easy, reliable and empathetic in the way you deal with customers and colleagues.
You will have experience of working in a Purchase Ledger team, ideally within the Housing sector. You will have experience with liaising with internal stakeholders of all levels within a large organisation and understanding of the importance of effective supplier relationships. Ability to uphold ‘best practice’ principles for compliant invoice processing, including educating internal stakeholders where due process is not followed with experience with navigating, and an ability to exploit, eProcurement systems
