Logistics Payable Coordinator
Here at TJX Canada, we strive our hardest to make sure that, every day, our customers are able to find the latest and greatest designer brand names for less than they'd pay elsewhere. When they walk through the doors of our stores, whether it's a Winners, HomeSense, or Marshalls, savvy shoppers know they'll experience the "Thrill of the Find," which, if you're curious, feels like a slight breeze blowing over the surface of your skin-not a bad feeling, if we do say so ourselves.
But you're not here to feel the breeze. You're here to see if working with TJX Canada is right for you. To help with your decision, we'd like to introduce you to someone who once faced the same choice you have to make.
London is one of our Logistics Payable Coordinators. He's responsible for processing freight, customs, and duty Vendor invoices in a timely, accurate manner. He also handles the monthly reconciliation and accrual of Carrier statements. He is really great at what he does, especially the way he can process a large volume of work without overlooking the tiniest detail.
It takes skill to process nearly 800 invoices-a week. Of course, that's nothing compared to the number of pushups and crunches he completes on a weekly basis. In the evenings, most people hold the remote while they watch TV. London holds the plank position.
This is London. He is one of us.
If you do decide to apply for this position, and we agree that this is the right job for you, you'll be supported by a plethora of internal programs whose only focus is the continued progress of your career. At TJX Canada, we do everything we can to help you achieve your full potential. But we can't do it all ourselves. You'll need to bring the ambition, the motivation, and the drive.
So what do you think? Like London, are you one of us?
Now, if you were to come on board as one of our Logistics Payable Coordinators, we'd ask you to do the following:
- Ensure all freight rates are validated as per Vendor contract prices.
- Process all invoices to ensure payments meet negotiated terms.
- Create and monitor all system reports (AP Work Flow).
- Ensure invoices are forwarded to AP in a timely manner.
- Analyze monthly invoices on hold to ensure timely resolution.
- Process Vendor credit notes and charge backs.
- Process daily report for duty by P.O. for Canada Customs.
- Report invoice and system exceptions.
- Provide daily P.O. variance statistics to Imports Manager.
- Participate in systems testing if necessary.
- Provide month end accrual amounts.
Sounds rather challenging and exciting, right? Let's hope so, because if it sounds easy or boring, there's a good chance this job isn't for you. But if it does sound right for you, here's why we know you'll be able to handle those challenges:
- You have at least one year of experience and post-secondary education.
- You have strong administrative skills, especially for managing emails.
- You are detail oriented and possess good analytical skills.
- You have strong issue management and interpersonal capabilities.
- You are skilled in information gathering and research techniques.
- You have proven time management abilities (ie: completing invoice processing within reasonable timelines, etc).
- You demonstrate great customer service and communication skills through written reports and verbal interactions (internally, vendors, carriers).
- Your organization skills including balancing and prioritizing daily workflow.
We know some of that might sound a little daunting, but if we're going to meet and exceed our promises to our customers, we have to be committed to hiring the best person for the job.
