A new interim opportunity to lead the Accounts Payable function within a major Local Government body during a period of transformation and improvement across the Authority.

Leading a team of c30 staff including three direct reports heading teams, you will be asked to take responsibility not only for the success of the team in day-to-day operations, but also for your input and expertise in driving improvement across the teams to elevate the performance of the function.

With the bulk of the team focused on high volume invoice processing, two further areas fall within the function: Compliance and Data. Specialist areas within those departments include the management of payments in areas such as schools and social care facilities. Operating within the challenges and opportunities posed by working remotely, you will need to quickly gain insight in to the current strengths and weaknesses of the department From there, you’ll work closely with the Head of Transactional Services to ensure that assets are deployed in the right way; establish key gaps and resourcing needs; and identify a practical path to improvement.

The role offers an exciting challenge to anyone who has lead an AP function before, ideally of a comparable size. There is a wider brief for improvement across the authority from a finance point of view which includes a new ERP system (Oracle), and any exposure you have in either Oracle itself or implementations is bound to be of use.

The role will be recruited on a permanent basis in the longer term and the successful interim may well be offered the opportunity to remain. The role will for the foreseeable future be working remotely so applications are welcomed from all over. The role is assessed as within scope of IR35.

With a Head of Transactional Services focused on improvement and delivery, this is a great opportunity to bring your experience in leading exceptional AP services to an adept management team, and help leave a legacy of excellence going forward.
