  • Process invoices, expense reports, and payment requests in a timely and accurate manner.

  • Provide financial/administrative support as required

The Person

The ideal candidate will have worked in an AP or AR capacity previously, ideally in a reasonably fast paced or high volume environment. Construction or related industry experience would be preferred but not essential - same with experience with MYOB.
