Following a restructure, they are now looking to appoint a Part Qualified or QBE Reporting Accountant to join their team on a permanent basis.
Your new role
In your new role as Reporting Accountant, you will be responsible for the processing of the end to end accounts function and transactional reporting. You will be joining a small but effective finance team where there will be two of you onsite but will be reporting into the Group FD who is based on their second site.

Experience of working in manufacturing and using ERP systems is highly desirable, however if you do not possess these, you must be able to pick up new systems effectively.
