  • Use of practice management, accounts and tax software (a sound knowledge of Microsoft office is essential).

The Trust Administrator will work under the supervision of the practitioner responsible for each trust, but the role will involve direct contact with trustee clients, trust beneficiaries and third parties.

  • Salary will be dependent on experience.
