Can you run Payroll and be Bookkeeper single-handedly for a small business? Great at juggling tasks and keeping everything in order? Do you love ICE-CREAM? Well it's your lucky day - become our Bookkeeper and Payroll Executive.

We're a small ice-cream business and love what we do - everything's organic, free-range, British or fair trade and we make all ice cream by hand. British? Yes. Traditional and boring?Definitely not! We constantly experiment and surprise with brave flavour combinations - Stilton & brandy, brown toast & marmalade, or horseradish ice cream (it really does work!). When it comes to ice-cream, we know what we're talking about, but we need YOU to be the financial expert and understand the challenges of a small business. You'll analyse, streamline and create efficiencies in everything we do, helping us grow bigger and better even faster!

Payroll is currently outsourced (which we hate) and our part-time bookkeeper is about to go on Maternity leave, so we think we need a different solution, and want to bring everything in-house. You'll be the finance team of 1, but we're one big family and while you probably won't want us poking our sticky fingers into your accounts, we'll be around for moral support and plenty of sugar!

I'm won't list out all the skills you need - you tell me the skills you need (you're the expert when it comes to being a bookkeeper and handling payroll, right?!)… We use Xero so you need to know it inside out and have experience working in finance for a small business. You don't just have a fantastic 'finance brain' - you problem-solve, self-motivate, juggle your 'to do' list, and as well and being a capable bookkeeper and running our payroll, you get stuck in with whatever needs doing (sometimes it gets busy and we all just chip in!).

If this job makes your taste buds tingle, then APPLY NOW!

Send your CV and write 'Ice-cream makes the numbers taste better!' in your cover email - I only want someone like YOU who reads the whole advert...!

DISCLAIMER: An unhealthy passion for ice cream isn't essential... but I reckon it'll help!
