Accounts Assistant

at Goodlord in London

(₤25000 - ₤28000 per year)

We’re looking for a highly organised Accounts Assistant to join our wonderful Finance team!

Goodlord is a fast-moving, innovative company that’s growing its customer and product base at great pace. We’re looking for someone to work alongside the Financial Controller to implement and document new procedures to enable the Finance function to scale with this growth.

This is a great opportunity to join a small but fast-growing team where you're encouraged to take on as much responsibility as you can. You’ll really be able to put your stamp on an area and run it how you see fit.


An initial project will be on the Accounts Receivable side. You’ll be the person responsible for implementing a new billing process end-to-end, from the issuing of accurate and timely invoices for all revenue streams to the collection of cash. It will be your responsibility to chase the setup of direct debits and follow up when payments fail.
You’ll get to work cross functionally, particularly with our Success and Growth teams to ensure accuracy and assist the Success and Support teams with inbound queries.
Speaking directly to customers via email and phone to resolve queries will be a big part of the job and you’ll help to be the voice of the business.
On the Accounts Payable side you will liaise with external parties such as Deloitte to prepare weekly payment runs and monthly payroll and PAYE payments.
You’ll work closely with our Payments team and get to shadow our Payments Executive to understand their processes and help support them as they support you.
There will be opportunities to work with the Financial Controller on other projects such as monthly reporting or analysis as they arise - no two days are ever the same at Goodlord!
