About Our Client
The Financial Transactions Manager will be based at the RVC. The RVC is the largest veterinary school in the English-speaking world and is also a college of the University of London. Ranked first in the world for veterinary science, the RVC has a unique, rich heritage of innovation and leadership in veterinary medicine and science since its establishment in 1791.

The Finance Department leads on, and provides support to our academic and other professional services departments, for financial planning (including management accounting), financial services (including financial accounting, accounts payable and accounts receivable), procurement, tax, and finance systems, as well as strategic advice on finance issues. Although the Department is based in Camden, some staff are based at our Hawkshead campus to support colleagues in other departments and we encourage team members to work closely with other departments.
As an experienced team leader and team worker, you will be responsible for ensuring that the Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable functions are performed efficiently and effectively, monthly reconciliations are undertaken and entries to the finance ledger are accurate, timely and complete. You will oversee the effective and efficient processing of expense claims, credit card (GPC) transactions and petty cash, and provide support for some banking and treasury functions. You will also monitor and enforce adherence to financial controls and procedures, recommending and implementing improvements to these, and work closely with colleagues responsible for systems development, financial controls, and tax. At peak times in the team's workload, you will be required to assist with processing duties.
This is an opportunity to deliver real process improvements within the team. As well as being part of a well-established Financial Services team, you will also work closely with colleagues across Finance, academic departments and other professional services departments across both the London and Hertfordshire campuses. In addition to managing the team of five staff, covering Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable, your role will include liaison with students, sales ledger customers and purchase ledger suppliers.
