This is a great role if you are looking to take your finance career to the next level by gaining large company experience through supporting our Transactional Services Finance team. We are looking for an Accounts Receivable Chapter Member to join our exceptional Accounts Receivable team.

Our purpose at The Warehouse Group (TWG) is 'Helping Kiwis live better every day." TWG has become a Kiwi household name, and we proudly recognise the role that we play in communities throughout Aotearoa. We are the largest general merchandise retailer in NZ with over $3 billion in sales, and employing over 12,000 people across The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Noel Leeming, Torpedo7, and TheMarket.com. 'Here for Good' is one of our core values and in our DNA - Did you know in the last financial year we raised $4.1 million for NZ charities!

This role sits within our Transactional Services team. We will rely on your end to end understanding of the accounts receivable and credit control processes.

On any day you could be liaising with the wider finance team, through to our stores, operations team or our customers - so your ability to build relationships through trust, confidence and your actions will sum up success in the role.

Key components of your role include the end to end process of the following tasks:
  • New customer account setup - working within the standard operating procedure.
  • Payment allocations received from customer remittance advises.
  • Customer Collections through phone, email, overdue letters

  • Correct discrepancies if required or investigate further for escalation to store manager / operations / loss prevention / internal audit on a timely basis and within team KPIs
  • Follow up any outstanding customer payments
  • Answering and resolving customer queries (via all platforms required - chat, phone, email etc) in a timely and efficient manner
  • Invoicing completed as needed on an ad hoc basis
  • Training on cross functional team processes.
  • Achieve personal and team KPI's set and agreed upon
  • Any other projects or workstreams that may be required from time to time
  • Any other duties as detailed from time to time may be required.

Qualifications

Professional, solution focused, and customer centric describe you down to a t. Equally important is your strong communication (written and oral) skills and high attention to detail and strong negotiation skills along with your knack to cope well under pressure.

Your energetic and flexible work approach will see you fit in well, especially as our team structure continues to take shape and evolve.

To hit the ground running we expect you will possess AR and credit control experience - in an end to end environment. Oracle experience would be a bonus, however not necessary provided you are system and Excel savvy we are open to your technical skillset. Of most importance is attitude and a growth mindset.
