The Team

The Billing Team is an integral part of the SCG business, working closely with the Customer Experience, Service Delivery and Accounts teams.  The Billing Team raises circa 130,000 invoices a year with a value in the region of £80m.  The invoice processes are necessarily automated relying on data collection and upload rather than manual preparation.

Whilst working in a high volume, high-pressure environment with tight deadlines, the team is characterised by hard work, shared responsibility, a supportive work environment and a healthy balance of professionalism and laughter.

Role Summary

The function of this role will be to complete the reconciliation of supplier accounts each month, to find any exceptions and investigate them through to completion. This role will provide insight into internal processes and the candidate will have influence on internal processes to ensure that they align with how charges are applied by the supplier.

Job satisfaction is achieved when savings or additional income is identified for the business.

The successful candidate will be naturally numerate, inquisitive, tenacious, be able to think independently and be well organized, with a desire to investigate anomalies.

For clarity, this job is not suitable for candidates who see themselves in an accountancy role.  Whilst the work of the Billing and Accounts teams dovetail, the departments are separate and require people with different but potentially transferable skill sets.
