Finance Assistant, Hull (Fixed Term – 12 months)


At Jacksons, we make Great Bread and deliver Great Service, but to do that we need Great People!


A brilliant opportunity to join our fantastic team and gain experience and responsibility in all aspects of our financial processes.


This is a fixed term role for a period of 12 months.


You will assist with our finance ledgers and help in the preparation of timely and accurate financial information, ensuring customers pay to terms and that all queries and any subsequent credits are dealt with in a timely manner.


What’s involved?


·        Matching and posting invoices and allocating cash

·        Resolving queries with customers in a timely manner

·        Contacting customers to request payment and setting up new accounts

·        Credit checking and ensuring insurance limits are up to date

·        Monitoring customer balances to ensure they do not exceed these limits

·        Controlling pro forma invoicing and monitoring all customer adherence to terms

·        Assist the production of a set of management accounts and KPIs each period to auditable standards


About You


Given the nature of the role you will need to have excellent attention to detail and may have some experience of using SAGE and Excel.


You will be a great communicator, having the ability to form proactive working relationships both internally and with our customers.


You may have some similar experience from a food manufacturing business or may just be a quick learner who is keen to gain some experience within a finance role.   


Why Jacksons?


Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of five food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people. We also have a pub!


We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We recently developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll, wrap and ciabatta production.


We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s Yorkshire’s Champion”.


We’ve recently built a brand-new site in Corby, Northamptonshire – one of the largest investments our Group has ever made – and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do.


2019 is an exciting time to join us!
