Goldacres is an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of world-class agricultural chemical spray equipment. Family owned and operated, with a head office in Ballarat, three retail sprayer centres and dealer networks across Australia, Goldacres have a reputation for innovation, quality and adaptability. From their inception in 1978, they have prospered by constantly re-inventing their products and business practises in a fast-changing landscape; turning ideas into reality to deliver sprayers which are truly Australia’s world-class sprayers.

Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer, this role is responsible for the accounts payable function and plays an integral role within the broader finance team. You will ensure a high volume of invoices are scanned and entered accurately using TRAILD and Epicor and all payments are accurately approved and processed promptly. In this role, accuracy and the ability to problem solve is critical.

In addition to managing the accounts payable function, this role is responsible for answering a low volume of incoming calls and meeting and greeting visitors to Goldacres. However, the focus of this role is on the accounts payable function with the low volume reception making up only 5-10% of the role day to day.

Your key tasks will include:

  • Invoice processing – matching invoices to purchase orders, matching delivery dockets, general ledger coding, and resolving discrepancies
  • Processing advanced payments
  • General filing of invoices, delivery dockets and statements
  • Payment processing – run and review fortnightly AP payment batches for approval and processing
  • Assisting with month end
  • Responding to general accounts payable enquiries
  • Ensuring accounts payable procedures are maintained
  • Meet and greet visitors, answer, connect and transfer incoming telephone calls, and ad-hoc general administration duties

About you:
The successful candidate will have exceptional attention to detail, strong organisational and time management skills, and be able to prioritise their high-volume workload to meet deadlines. Excellent communication skills, a professional approach and a focus on continuous improvement are a must in this role.

Ideally, the successful candidate will have previous experience in an Accounts Payable role and will have a strong understanding of the accounts payable function within a finance team. Overall, it’s the ability to take initiative and problem solve, coupled with a positive can-do attitude that will impress Goldacres.

Why work for Goldacres?

  • Join a great team and experience a positive high performing team-focused culture – monthly all staff lunches
  • Great work environment and facilities
  • Uniform provided
  • Be trusted to do your job and acknowledged for your contribution
  • EAP & Wellness Program
