In an exciting time for LAS there is a significant amount of change activity happening which will offer natural variety in the role and may open up other opportunities to be involved in.
There may be a small element of travel within this role, to our London and Beckenham offices primarily, to meet with the Financial Controller and the business unit finance teams.
