About the Role

Job Purpose

You will be part of the Financial Accounting team of 18 people, which is responsible for accounting for all Group companies and for making most of the Group’s payments to borrowers, introducers and suppliers.

The Asset Control team within finance is responsible for ensuring that the accounts of the group reflect the transactions shown on the mortgage accounting system and that all cash transactions with borrowers actually update the individual borrower accounts.

Key Duties

The main responsibilities of the position will include

  • posting transactions to nominal ledger accounts from bank statements and journals;
  • analysis of transactions on both the loan ledgers and finance systems;
  • investigation of any differences between amounts showing within the two systems; and
  • several other data posting analysis and reporting tasks.

The differences mentioned above can arise in many ways and there are very few standard items, so resolving the issues may take some time and involve liaison with front line staff.

The role will involve a significant amount of contact with other functional areas of the group, notably the administration teams in operations, underwriting and cashiers, and team members are expected to develop a high level of understanding of the way in which customer accounts function and are administered.
