We are a business that receives over £3million of deliveries per year, and to do this well takes careful management.

With that in mind we are looking for someone to join our commercial resources department to provide a valuable support service to our commercial managers and their staff.

You’ll be a very organized person who is able to manage a varied workload and pay attention to detail whilst sometimes dealing with a high number of transactions. You’ll also be able to integrate well into an established commercial team who will depend on your efficiency. You’ll be keen to promote LUU’s values and provide a service that is befitting to an award winning Students’ Union.

As a Commercial Resources Assistant you will be working with an exciting bunch of people across a range of different commercial outlets. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that deliveries are entered accurately onto our stock systems, that invoices are matched and that our suppliers are paid the correct amount. You’ll also be responsible for accurately recording stock movements and maintaining our stock management system. You’ll play a key role in our monthly stock take process and will compile data for various other departments, but specifically our retail outlets. In addition you will be responsible for maintaining our EPoS systems, which includes 50 touch screen tills and 40 card payment terminals.

The successful applicant will be computer literate and will have experience of working in an administrative role, preferably in a commercial background. You will be keen to work in a student focused environment helping our students “Love Their Time at Leeds”.
