Want to become part of a skilled and determined team who take real pride in what they do? 

If so, this is an exciting opportunity to play a vital behind-the-scenes role in an organisation that’s respected across the world. 

The Organisation

Our client is an internationally renowned provider of NDT (non-destructive testing), corrosion and coatings training and consultancy services. 

Based in a multi-million pound Engineering Training Centre, they provide an unrivalled learning environment with the latest equipment and facilities on offer.

They are proud to be a part of an organisation that has been improving the world through engineering since 1847.

Our client is currently looking for an Accounts Payable Technician to join their Finance Department.

As an Accounts Payable Technician, you’ll make sure that the Accounts Payable Ledger is run like clockwork. 

You’ll join the recently established Shared Service Centre and ensure its continued success.

You may have previously worked as an Accounts Payable Assistant, Finance Assistant, Accounts Administrator, Finance Administrator, Accounts Assistant, AP Technician, Accounts Clerk, or Accounts Payable Ledger Clerk.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a fast-moving Finance Department, which plays an integral role in the successful operation of this pioneering organisation.  

Our client helps to strengthen the world’s leading companies, so they understand the importance of learning and development. Here, you’ll be supported to grow, enhance your expertise, and become the best at what you do. 

The organisation is dedicated to making your time with them a satisfying and enjoyable experience. You’ll be rewarded for your achievements, encouraged to pursue your interests, and empowered to make a difference within your part of the organisation.
