What does an Accounts Receivable Officer do?

An Accounts Receivable Officer makes sure a business or organisation receives payments for products or services they have provided.

Accounts Receivable Officers maintain customer accounts and may have to prepare financial reports when required.

An Accounts Receivable Officer needs to be highly organised. You’ll be working with several clients at once so you’ll need to be able to multitask. It’s important that you have good attention to detail and can communicate any issues to relevant members of your team.
