Vacancy for Finance Assistant (Rijswijk)

Processing invoices, accounts receivable and accounts payable management. You can do this in just about any Finance Assistant job, but at EP&C it is extra special. This is because you work in an interesting industry where protecting inventions is key. And even if you don't actually work on patents yourself, you will be working in an innovative environment where job satisfaction is key.

A day in the life of a Finance Assistant

So today first of all you scrutinise the general ledger because some clients have received more services than they have been charged for. You work out how this has happened. After updating the accounts payable ledger, you have a chat with a Patent Attorney at the coffee machine. She tells you about an invention for which a patent application has been filed. Your schedule for the afternoon includes some follow-up calls to debtors, after which you have a departmental meeting to discuss the division of tasks because the Finance Team is being reorganised. There will be plenty of room for you to take the initiative and share your vision on how processes could be improved.

The work of a Finance Assistant in short:

  • Paying purchase invoices and processing bank and cash transactions
  • Accounts receivable management
  • Accounts payable management
  • Providing monthly financial statements and reports
  • Contributing to overall process improvements of the accounts receivable & accounts payable department
Sandra Kruijer, Finance Assistant: "What I like about EP&C is that it is not a run of the mill company and this job has a lot going for it. I am still learning new things every day. For example, we work with three different programs to ensure that everything runs smoothly. I like that variety."

Who are EP&C?

Where innovation meets law, that is where the magic happens. That is where you find EP&C Patent Attorneys. We are the patent agency that looks beyond technology. We help innovative entrepreneurs manage their intellectual property.

People lunch together and have a laugh together but also work hard. At EP&C, we value a good work-life balance. We look after each other and focus on your professional and personal development.
