New Platform Junior Accountant

New Platform Junior Accountant

Why is a role in our New Platform Accounting team the next step for you?

As one of the top five payments processors in the world, we’re responsible for over 8 billion global transactions per year. Worldpay's New Acquiring Platform is pioneering a payment revolution.

This project will deliver a new, replacement operating platform and fundamental re-design of supporting business processes, and this role plays a major part in ensuring this works from an accounting perspective. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in developing Worldpay’s future capabilities.


How will you add value on a day to day basis?

This role will be responsible for supporting the successful implementation of FX and Financial Accounting by completing the daily entries, supporting testing and other project activities.

You will be completing daily ledger posting and reconciliations, FX and month end processes to ensure the system functionality is fit for purpose. 

A key part of this role will be to assist with the UAT testing and data validation for the new system. You’ll identify, log, and explain the implications of any issues, working towards ensuring the system is ready for the 2019 customer migration. 



What will make you the ideal candidate?

We are looking for an analytically-minded individual who likes a challenge, with strong attention to detail and a passion for getting things to work. Ideally you will have some experience and understanding of double-entry book-keeping and financial controls.

Working in a project environment you must be an adaptable person with good problem solving, and comfortable dealing with uncertainty. You must have an interest in understanding complex systems and processes and the ability to interrogate data, identify and resolve discrepancies and some experience of delivering improvements. This is a highly visible role so you will have the confidence to communicate with stakeholders at all levels, from accountants, to developers and testers, to colleagues in other departments.

We can provide support towards an Accounting Qualification CIMA or ACCA.
