Sales Ledger Clerk Jobs

Sales ledger clerks generally work regular office hours, Monday to Friday. But there are also plenty of part-time and flexible working options available in this role. You'll spend most of your time at your desk raising invoices and talking to clients, as it's all about good communication thrown in with some maths.

If you want a career that offers room to move, this is ideal for you as there’s plenty of scope for promotion once you’ve got some experience. Sales ledger clerks often graduate to work as a supervisor or manager and from there to credit controller and even financial controller.
