Accounts Receivable Accountant

Reference No: WD-0003993

What's the role?

Are you looking for a new role for 2021? We're looking for an accounting professional to operate established cash and bank management processes as part of a financial shared service covering the Northern European Region & The Middle East.

Who is Hilti?

Unless you work in construction, you probably haven't heard of us. We're a hidden gem.

We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the professional construction sector. Our customers are loyal and enthusiastic about us. So are our people.

We regularly win Great Place to Work awards globally and are very proud to have been placed on the Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list in the UK by our employees for the past 10 years.

Hilti offers the best of both worlds – friendly teams locally and roles across the UK combined with the opportunities only a company of 30,000 people spread across 120 countries can bring.

What does the role involve?

In the role of Accounts Receivable Accountant you will make consistent and correct financial bookings of bank statements including payments and receipts, and will operate internal controls, particularly over supplier payment runs, credit card processing and billing. You will also be involved in the preparation of monthly fleet finance reconciliations.

As a senior team member, you will need to assist more junior team members to improve efficiency of operational tasks for the overall team. You will also be involved with the testing of ERP enhancements/bug fixes, as well as being involved in cross-functional projects.

Hilti GB are proud to rank 35th in the Sunday Times Top 100 employers for 2019!

What do we offer?

We really value our people and we've worked hard to develop a competitive reward package that reflects this. Some of the benefits we offer include:

*Different ways to work flexibly including working from home and compressed hours so please feel free to talk about what flexibility means to you at your interview
*Genuine career advancement (more than 80% of all leadership roles are filled internally
*Competitive salary and above-average performance bonus

*Subsidised on-site canteen and free fruit and salad
*Free parking and excellent public transport links

Our Head Office is currently based next to Old Trafford but in early 2021 we will move to state of the art new premises at Circle Square in Central Manchester. We will continue to offer free parking for employees and will be located a short walk from Oxford Rd train station and St Peter's Square tram stop.

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience. So, if you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.

  • Educational achievement at degree level or equivalent
  • Currently studying towards a higher level professional accounting qualification (ACCA/ACA preferred)
  • Previous experience in a Shared Service Centre environment
  • Knowledge of leading process improvement initiatives
  • Good written and verbal communication skills
