Remote working is welcomed and supported as we care about the job you do, not where you do it. However, some duties require attendance at our office, Dakota House, Weybridge KT13 0YP. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we’d welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.
This position is based in the Business Operations Banking & Income Team, which supports the Leadership of the directorate by ensuring that essential daily tasks for the Council’s banking are completed.
You will need to be highly organised, able to communicate at all levels, comfortable setting your own priorities and meeting tight deadlines. As well as this, you will have a sound grasp of Microsoft Office applications and SAP, and working knowledge of the internet and e-mail applications.
The role combines financial tasks related to the area of banking and income and administrative support to schools and other Surrey services in relation to the upkeep of their bank accounts.
Daily tasks would involve the banking and allocating of payments coming into Surrey County Council's bank account and working with other services within Surrey to allocate those payments in a timely fashion. You will also be responsible for uploading Electronic Bank statements, maintaining the bank account, and Direct Debit administration (including cancelations and collections). In addition, you will process BACS files. The team also raises all the invoices and chase letters going out to external customers.
Knowledge of banking processes is desirable, however not essential as training will be provided should you be appointed to the role. If you can provide evidence of excellent administrative skills coupled with knowledge of financial procedures then we encourage you to apply.
