I personally loved working for Meggitt. I found them a great company to work for and if I still lived in the vicinity I would go back and work there.
Get to work, Check emails, deal with any immediate queries.
Allocate payments against remittance and indicate payment amount on target sheet.
Chase aged debt
Resolve queries in order to maximise payment
Run company credit checks
Month end duties
Ensure targets were met
I learned how to use Microsoft excel in greater detail.
Meggitt work with some very sensitive customers, so diplomacy was always a massive part of the role.
I grew in confidence as monthly aged debt meetings would be held at the various sites that applied to your ledger and then as the purchase ledger clerk, it would be my responsibility to delegate tasks to the workforce to get the queries resolved.
I found the management very fair.
The workplace was fun and but obviously dedicated to the job at hand, when I worked there I set up social activities for team bonding etc.
Every job is hard, especially if you have a great attitude towards it and you want to succeed. So I don't know what I would say was the hardest part of the job.
The moist enjoyable part, is the achievement of resolving an aged debt and getting it paid. Building a great report with your customers so that they know, you will do what you have promised, because there is nothing more frustrating then a false promise.
