Helping to provide brilliant support to colleagues and customers. That’s when it hits home

We’ve got a fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome Income and Expenditure Centre of Excellence. As a team, we look after all the purchase orders and invoices for the Operations function (that’s payments in and out to you and me!). In our ‘Centre of Excellence’, we provide business support to our colleagues and customers across Home Group. We work collaboratively to deliver in-depth support, and work as a dedicated team to see the job through from end to end.

The team is situated in two locations, Leeds and Southampton. This vacancy is within the team based in Leeds.

About our team
You’ll join our fabulous team of administrators, we’re passionate about providing brilliant customer service and we will support you all the way. 

So, what do we do? Well, we make sure that purchase orders (goods or services that we buy) are raised efficiently, this ensures that the goods or services are delivered to our customers, and the suppliers receive prompt payment. As a team, we also pay bills such as; utilities, service charges and council tax. Another integral part of our job is to support our frontline colleagues to raise their invoices (which are instructions to a customer to pay Home Group for the services that it delivers). 

You’ll be working alongside Christina, who is our brilliant Business Support Team Manager. Christina started with Homegroup in 2019 and thrives on a challenge, she has a sense of pride in the work that our team delivers and is always looking for ways to improve. She is passionate about our values and has a ‘can do’ attitude. She has a great sense of humour and outside of work likes nothing more than going out on adventures with her mischievous dog.

Working with Christina is Amber, who is our brilliant Business Support Team Manager. Whilst Amber is new into the manager role herself, she is not new to Homegroup and in her time here has gained so much knowledge on our Oracle systems and processes. She loves a challenge, and she has a lot of transferable skills that she uses day to day within the team especially around upskilling others. She has a brilliant sense of humour and outside of work has a passion for all things cats and loves making jewellery.

Like most jobs it can be a challenging at times, but it’s ever so rewarding to work in our fun, vibrant and supportive team. We’re sure your valuable skills and experience will ensure we continue to deliver a high quality service to the business.

Working hours
You’ll be working full time 37.5 hours per week. You’ll work over 5 days from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. At Home Group we encourage and promote flexible working, so we are happy to have a chat with you about your working hours.

About you
You’ll have previous administration experience in a fast-paced environment, with an eye for detail and curious about the work you do. Ideally you will have a background in purchasing with the ability to multi task and prioritise workloads to ensure you meet your deadlines. You’ll have excellent working knowledge of office procedures with extensive knowledge of Microsoft packages including MS Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. 

You’ll be an effective team member and work with minimum supervision, are you self-motivated and able to use your own initiative, then this is the role for you.
