We’re looking for a highly motivated individual who is keen to develop their career. The successful candidate may be part/fully professionally qualified (ACA/ACCA/CIMA), with limited PQE, or qualified by experience with exposure gained in a similar role. Culture fit and personal qualities are just as important as technical experience; the role works within a fast paced and energetic team where superb communications skills will be required. This is no job for an accountant that wants to be left in the shadows!
