Accounts receivable jobs

Tiger Recruitment is dedicated to helping candidates find accounts receivable jobs in London and beyond. From entry-level accounts receivable assistant jobs, through to senior accounts receivable manager roles, we can help you find a role that suits your expertise and skillset.

An accounts receivable job is a fantastic way to combine strong administrative skills with business acumen and financial know-how. A career in accounts offers ongoing opportunities for progression, as well as diverse applications – from credit control jobs to accounts controller jobs and accounts receivable co-ordinator jobs, there are plenty of ways to use your unique skillset.

Accounts receivable assistant jobs

For those starting out, an accounts receivable assistant job can be a great first position. This entry-level role has a wide range of responsibilities, including allocating payments to accounts, reconciling credit card sales receipts, checking raised invoices, managing an accounts inbox and managing aged debt. You’ll also be required to adhere to internal policies and procedures, ensuring they are applied correctly.

Some accounts receivable assistant jobs will require an Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification, as well as experience with SAGE software and the Microsoft Office suite. More generally, you will need broad financial skills and be able to communicate effectively with both internal and external stakeholders.

Accounts receivable officer jobs

An experienced accounts receivable assistant looking for the next step in their career could look for an accounts receivable officer job, which can also be known as an accounts receivable coordinator. This builds upon the basic accounting skills of an accounts receivable assistant job, with additional responsibilities such as management of a ledger of billing clients and collecting and recording income. Intermediate knowledge of an accounting software such as SAGE or XERO is generally required, as is a demonstrable understanding of VAT accounting and best practice.

An accounts receivable officer job or accounts receivable coordinator job is usually a fantastic option for someone who has one job under their belt already and is looking for a new challenge.

Just like the accounts receivable assistant role, this role requires excellent communication skills and fantastic attention to detail.

Accounts receivable administrator jobs

An accounts receivable administrator job is similar to an accounts receivable officer role or accounts receivable coordinator position in that it involves detailed accounting processes. An administrator will work with a ledger or record, ensuring invoices and credit notes are matched, running daily reports to ensure the accuracy of transactions, monthly reconciliation of payments and authorising orders made by the wider business.

The accounts receivable administrator job can be mid- to senior-level in a smaller company, or entry- to mid-level in a larger organisation. Therefore, candidates looking to move into this role should have previous accounts receivable, banking and journal process experience and a strong knowledge of the Microsoft Office suite. It can also include an element of credit control, as per a credit control job.

As with all accounts receivable jobs, excellent communication skills, self-motivation and an outstanding attention to detail are essential.

Accounts receivable manager jobs

An accounts receivable manager job is a fantastic option for senior accounts professionals.

As a manager, you’ll be required to oversee all invoicing in a timely fashion, liaising with other members of the business to ensure accurate accounting. The seniority of this position means you’ll be usually managing a team of administrative assistants or officers, ensuring that they are following process and procedures.

As a senior member of staff, you’ll also be responsible for making recommendations to improve processes and procedures and ensuring all of these are implemented. An accounts receivable manager should expect to have approximately five years’ experience in accounts, a strong knowledge of relevant software and in some cases, a professional qualification.

An accounts controller job is a variation to an accounts receivable manager position. As a controller, you are responsible for overseeing the accounting options of the company, including the production of financial reports, maintaining the accounting system and establishing a set of controls and budgets designed to mitigate risk.

An accounts controller job can be quite comprehensive in a small business, where you could be responsible for managing cash flow and risk. In a larger business, these responsibilities fall under separate job descriptions.
