You’ll work closely with colleagues and suppliers to identify, track, report and resolve the root-cause issues relating to supplier non-compliance for the contract claim recovery process, whilst reducing and tracking missed opportunities.

It’s an exciting time to be joining the Plumbing & Heating division as we embark on a transformation journey to create a stronger, efficient and more profitable business. Our strategy focuses on nurturing what already makes us great, while building plans to differentiate our customer offer and continuing to develop expertise, range and delivering a great service to make it easier for customers to do business with us.

  • Ownership of reconciliation between Sales, Claims, Payments and account position

    • This reconciliation should encompass full understanding of differences, explanations and plan for resolution

  • Ensure margin recovery procedures and processes are adhered to by consulting departments

  • Provide support to the Claimback and Margin Manager/s and wider margin recovery team, ensuring escalation to the relevant internal and external stakeholder(s) for identified margin audit risks

  • Investigating Supplier queries and discrepancies in a timely manner

  • Suggesting  system and process improvements that adapt to meet business needs

What we are looking for

Ideally you’ll have a minimum of GCSE English and Maths (or equivalent) & an accountancy qualification such as AAT would be an advantage. You’ll have a good understanding around margin recovery processes and accounting principles. Your communication and interpersonal skills will be excellent to allow you to successfully engage with colleagues across the business. You’ll need to be highly organised, with the ability to plan workload and achieve deadlines.

What we can offer you?

A busy and fast paced business with great benefits, and plenty of opportunities for career progression - join the Travis Perkins P&H division as a Finance Administrator based in Northampton and share our success and good times with a hard-working, friendly bunch of people.

Our strong family values and 'cornerstones' lie at the heart of the success of our journey - from family business to forward thinking Company. If matching your ambition to our culture is an exciting prospect, there's never been a better time to join us.  

And if, like us, you put customers at heart of everything you do, you can expect to be rewarded with a full package of benefits on top of a salary that grows with you as you grow in our business.
