This is a full time, permanent position that will be based from the business headquarters in Glastonbury. 

This is an interesting and broad-ranging opportunity where the successful candidate will manage full control over the accounting and administration function of this growing business. The current accounting protocols have been efficiently structured but the incoming incumbent will enjoy the autonomy of being able to streamline and improve the function as they see fit.

They seek to recruit a candidate with at-least 2-3 years of experience gained within an SME and a good understanding of full cycle accounting. The business uses Sage accounting software and candidates should possess strong IT aptitude and a sound knowledge of MS Office products. As important as strong technical experience, a great culture fit is important in this role and excellent communication skills are a must.
