Our client, a rapidly growing company in Fort Myers, has an immediate need for an accounts payable specialist. The accounts payable specialist will be primarily responsible for full cycle A/P and will report directly to the controller.

If your ideal employer is one that is big enough to offer stability and growth, while small enough to care about its employees, then this could be the opportunity for you. Supportive management, training, clear expectations, and regular performance reviews make this a productive working environment for a committed and ambitious candidate. Position also offers competitive benefits.

Duties include:

  • Invoice processing: receiving and reviewing incoming invoices from vendors, ensuring they are accurate, properly authorized, and match the company’s purchase orders or contracts.

  • Data entry: entering invoice details into the company’s accounting system, allocating expenses to appropriate accounts and cost centers.

  • Payment processing: scheduling and processing payments to vendors within the agreed-upon payment terms, including issuing checks, electronic transfers, or managing an automated payment system.

  • Vendor management: establishing and maintaining positive relationships with vendors and handling any inquiries or discrepancies related to invoices or payments.

  • Expense reconciliation: reconciling accounts payable transactions to ensure that all payments are accounted for correctly.

  • Expense reports: reviewing and processing employee expense reports, verifying receipts and compliance with company expense policies.

  • Record-keeping: maintaining accurate and organized records of all accounts payable transactions, invoices, and payment documentation.

  • Compliance: ensure compliance with relevant accounting principles, regulations, and company policies.

  • Continuous improvement: looking for opportunities to streamline and improve the accounts payable process to increase efficiency and accuracy.

  • Other duties as assigned.
