The role involves responsibility for all aspects of the UK purchase ledger and the related banking activities. The key deliverable is that all expenses are coded accurately within a fairly complex Group structure, which provides the foundation for many of the activities of the team. All suppliers should of course also be paid on a timely basis.

The role offers an insight into the private equity environment and would suit a candidate that already has some experience of working within a finance team.
