Hours are 8.30-5 with 30 mins for lunch, free parking and 20 days holidays + bank holidays rising with service. The team and company have a friendly and communicative approach.

My client is looking for a capable local person and is willing to be flexible on exactly what that individual may have been working on recently as they will give training and support. However, the right "can-do" attitude and a strong work ethic are essential.

There are efficient processes in place so my client is looking for a detail conscious and systematically organised person who will be happy in a calm and relatively quiet office but there are other functions on site too so the accounts team are not isolated.

You will be highly numerate and ideally have some office based experience dealing with basic finance admin duties. Excel ability would be useful, but most important is being a self-starter that can demonstrate that they have the ability and mentality to deal with a lot of processing where accuracy is key and that is also happy to delve into resolving account queries with other colleagues.
