Overview: My client is a company based in Letchworth Garden City that distribute electronic items around the UK. They are looking for an experienced bookkeeper to join their team.


They are looking for a full time, permanent Bookkeeper to join their team working 9am-5pm. Reporting directly to the CEO who does the month end and close the month etc, you will:

  • Have working experience of and proficient with Sage
  • Running quarterly VAT and payments
  • Posting daily invoices and credits from Orderwise to Sage – Orderwise experience isn’t essential but could be beneficial
  • Keeping all Purchase and Sales ledgers up to date on a daily basis
  • Posting monthly accruals and prepayments
  • Reconciling bank statements and credit cards on a weekly basis.
  • Posting any monthly Standing Orders, Direct Debits and recurring transactions
  • Posting invoice adjustments between Orderwise and Sage for supplier stock.

In addition you will need to be experienced in working with invoice financing as you will need to liaise with external organisations. You will need to post the monthly charges from an external organisation from the end of the month reports and then reconcile the account on Sage. You will also need to monitor any payments that go into the current account either by BACS payments or Card payments and make sure a contra payment is done to the organisation otherwise there will be a reconciliation difference.

You will also need to liaise closely with the account managers regularly sending over financials and answering any queries they have.

As an importer, someone with an understanding of currency, particularly the dollar would be beneficial as you may need to adjust the accounts fairly regularly.

They have debtor protection in place but you will be monitoring and reviewing limits and passing on relevant debtors to the external organisation to chase for payment. This will be done in conjunction with the credit controller and Sales Director.

Please note: due to the high volume of CV’s we receive, we are unable to respond personally to all applications. If you do not hear from us within 5 working days of your application, please take your application as unsuccessful on this occasion. Good luck with your job search.
