We are seeking a well organised individual to join our busy Finance Team to efficiently manage our purchase ledger function.

Isabel Hospice is a highly respected local charity with deep roots in the communities we have served for over 35 years. Providing a wide range of care and support to people with life limiting illnesses and their families, we have cared for 1,555 patients across all of our services during the last year alone. Our services are leading edge; enabling people to access the support and care they need to live well for as long as possible and die with dignity in the place of their choice.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Team at Isabel Hospice and to support the Head of Finance and Finance Officer. You will be processing incoming invoices, monitoring compliance with internal approvals using Sage and WAP our electronic invoice approval system, preparing payment runs, assisting with supplier queries and carrying out other month end reporting requirements.
