  • Processing ‘requisitions’, raising of purchase orders, and ensuring we adopt ‘best practice’ within the ‘Procure-to-Pay’ (P2P) process

The successful individual will be experienced in a P2P process, ideally with a broad knowledge of expenditure types. Examples include, but are not limited to marketing, software licenses, maintenance renewals, consulting services, hardware, and telecom / data services. Also having a finance background that includes an understanding of cost centres, general ledger accounts both operating expense and capital expense is preferred. Along with exposure to P2P including good receipts, three-way match, and payment settlement, the candidate should acknowledge that issues will not always follow established processes.

To be successful the candidate will need an inquisitive mind and the ability to cut through issues, identify route causes, question existing processes, and recommend process improvements to reduce future occurrences.

  • Provide specialist support and advice by responding to internal and external enquiries in a professional timely and customer-focused manner
  • Managing new supplier onboarding process, ensuring signed SEGA T&C’s and/or working with Legal Department where appropriate.
  • Working closely with the relevant cost centres, Finance, and other teams to gather, collect and enter the necessary information into Oracle
  • Main person on all (non-manufacturing) SEGA purchasing requirements
  • Work collaboratively and in partnership with other departments including Marketing, HR, IT, Legal and external stakeholders to ensure purchase orders are raised on a timely basis for all purchasing requisitions, communicated to suppliers, and are receipted when the service has been fulfilled
  • Ensure purchase requisitions are accurately coded to the correct general ledger accounts and entered with adequate descriptions
  • Manage internal recharges between HQ and Studios
  • Reconcile PO receipts for goods and services with the three-way match process; working with the Accounts Payable team to ensure timely payment of supplier invoices. Monitor and ensure PO's are closed out with budget cycles and/or duration of the contractual obligation
  • Assist in the month-end reporting, with particular focus on the cost reporting and review
  • Identify prepayments and highlight with the wider finance team
  • Identify capital expenditure and ensure this is appropriately classified and categorised
  • Ensure department procedures are both regularly reviewed and updated as necessary to ensure they remain accurate and relevant

 

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

 

  • Demonstrable experience working within a Purchasing role along with a deep understanding of the ‘procure-to-pay’ cycle is key.
  • Prior experience of Oracle or similar ERP system.
  • Able to work with some direction from Management, but happy to drive day to day without supervision.
  • Strong Excel skills, having used this extensively in previous roles.
  • Ability to cut through issues, identify route cause, generate solutions to eliminate future occurrences.
