About the role

Due to company growth, we require an Assistant Revenue Accountant. This is an essential role, providing full support to the Revenue Accountant and in addition providing support to the wider Finance team. You will be responsible for maintaining strong controls around the completeness and accuracy of accounting for revenues and receivables at Chevron, from both a P&L and balance sheet perspective.

You will deal with numerous tasks on a daily, weekly and monthly basis including; correctly allocating cash receipts, raising and checking sales invoices, the production of applications for 3 major clients, undertaking new customer credit checks, ensuring existing customers have a credit check completed, maintaining controls to ensure completeness and accuracy of revenue reporting, producing balance sheet positions for AROCs and Trade Debtors, preparing monthly revenue journals and the preparation of monthly schedules to support balance sheets.  Reporting is paramount to this role, accuracy and efficiency is a given. As we are a “high-value/low-volume environment”, with circa £120m revenue being billed from sixteen depot profit centres, there is also a “low value/high-volume environment” side to the sales ledger.

Communication and forging solid relationships is also key to this role as you will be expected to liaise with client contacts to pursue any unpaid invoices, applications and any queries that may arise.  You will also work closely with the Commercial team  to ensure that all relevant transactions are recorded promptly and accurately in all relevant spreadsheets, as well as updating the accounting system and maximising cash collections from clients.

About you

A highly motivated individual with a positive personality and tenacity, you have experience working in a Finance background and are gifted with a high level of Finance and excel knowledge.  You are able to quickly establish dynamic working relationships with both customers and colleagues, forging deep relationships built on trust and delivery of accurate financial information.  You thrive working within a high performing, fast moving team and will be excited about the opportunity to join our business at this time in our evolution.

  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Solid grasp of double entry book-keeping and basic accounting principles
  • Comfortable in a change environment (investment in new business systems is underway, role holder will need to adapt accordingly)
