Senior Payments Processing & Reconciliation Analyst. This award-winning payments services & FX company is currently seeking a new member for their growing payments team. The team is part of a vibrant and forward-thinking company and offers good chance for future progression. Work covers payments processing (heavy international, with some domestic: swift, bacs, chaps, FX, SEPA) for a range of international corporate clients, typically banks and finance houses.

NOTE: Candidates must have experience of working in a dedicated payments role, with good experience of international payments and swift.

Senior Payments Processing Analyst - The role:

Joining a well-established team this position covers payments processing and reconciliation duties.

This busy and rewarding role will see you responsible for the processing of a wide range of client payment transactions. These functions include payment receipt, routing and delivery, in addition to FX processing.

You will cover: dealing with the daily execution of client collection and payment demand, utilising multiple banking interfaces - including SWIFT and BACS - and a range of proprietary banking applications; reconciliation of bank accounts, merchant and House Liquidity and FX monitoring; exception handling / investigations for Merchant initiated and in-house queries; correspondence with banking partners through email, telephone and the SWIFT network; Client correspondence; general archiving and record keeping.

Senior Payments Processing Analyst - The hours:

The hours are a standard 37.5hr week covering a shift system that covers between the hours of 0700 and 1900hrs, rotating on 'earlies', 'middles' and 'lates' every 2-3wks. Saturday work (a few hours) is again on a rota, but once every 4-5 weeks. Candidates must be comfortable with these working hours.

Senior Payments Processing Analyst - The candidate:

It's an exciting time to join the company and, with this, the client requires people who are hungry and motivated to succeed; people who aren't afraid of change and who will embrace a challenge.

This position sits at a more senior level within the team and, with this, the client is seeking a very experienced individual. Someone who, in addition to the day-to-day processing tasks, can bring added value in terms of issue resolution, treasury coordination, mentoring lower-level team members.

This role would suit someone with a background working in a busy payments team. Candidates must have a good working knowledge of SWIFT and BACS, but must have good general International and Domestic payment systems experience, be able to investigate and query resolutions, together with associated back office support functions. Strong Excel and Word skills required as well.

The client will provide full product training and the role offers a good deal of future scope for career enhancement. The salary will reflect your experience (£25k-£30k). Services advertised by Dupen are those of an Agency.
