Accounts Payable Manager - Hove
Accounts Payable Manager
While a startup company will usually get by with a single accountant dealing with all the incoming and outgoing payments, as it grows, this becomes more complex, especially when the business relies heavily on suppliers. Whether it’s vendors, freelancers or other services, they normally work on credit, so won’t expect immediate payment, but will expect regular, timely and predictable payments after invoicing if the relationships are to survive.
In supplier-heavy businesses, the accounts department will often be split into accounts payable and accounts receivable, and overseeing the payable team will be the accounts payable manager. It is the team’s responsibility to ensure all invoices coming in are correct, matching purchase orders and other forms of confirmation that products and services have been delivered. Then, they’ll ensure payments are made within the agreed timeframes. The Accounts payable manager will put procedures in place to ensure the department runs smoothly, and will troubleshoot and chase up queries when the staff are unable to.
The skills required for senior accounts payable jobs
Accounts payable manager jobs are best performed by those who have worked their way up the accountancy departments of businesses, whether that’s in general accounts or specifically in accounts payable. Since payable and receivable do have different goals and responsibilities, experience in the payable side is often preferred, but there’s enough crossover to make the skills quite interchangeable at the managerial level.
The accounts payable manager will be an excellent communicator, and should know their way around the various accounting software suites. They’ll also need to be able to investigate queries and chase up disputes, as the supplier is often right when there’s an invoice disagreement.

Accounts Payable Manager Jobs in Hove
Hove is a south coast town that adjoins Brighton completely along its east side, and the two are collectively part of the city of Brighton and Hove. Although Hove proper has a population of 90,000, the local authority of Brighton and Hove is home to over a quarter of a million people, making it a sizeable concentration of people. Brighton is well known as being a holiday resort, whereas Hove, despite its coastline which is almost identical to its neighbour, is considered more of a residential area. Indeed, people from Hove (often light-heartedly) point out that they are from this more upmarket part of the area rather than Brighton, even if they are actually from Brighton! In recent years, with Brighton gaining a much more fashionable and bohemian image, perhaps the pendulum will swing the other way, particularly when people are selling their homes …
The town is a reasonably affluent and attractive place to live, and has an economically active populace attracted by pleasant surroundings and good shopping and entertainment areas. The UK’s largest distributor of snack foods, Palmer and Harvey (P&H) has its headquarters in Hove, as does the Mace convenience store chain.
The large population of economically active people in Hove and its surrounding area means that Accounts Payable Manager jobs turn up from time to time here. The town and its mother city are busy all the year round; thanks to its vibrant entertainment and residential scene, Hove and Brighton do not become ghost towns out of season like some other resorts.
