A creditors clerk plays a vital role in ensuring that invoices are captured accurately so that payments can be made timeously. Along with capturing invoices into the accounting system, they will also be required to check and match the invoices against orders, arrange payment of invoices, send out Remittance Advices to suppliers and file invoices once payment is complete. There are also daily tasks that the creditors clerk will be responsible, such as updating the cash book and other administrative duties. The position requires an organised individual who can work under pressure and ensure that deadlines are always met. Problem solving skills are a must, while attention to every detail is essential as any mistakes can be costly. Communication skills should also be excellent on both a verbal and written level.
