The role will work from the company’s Paignton based headquarters and works as part of a small and energetic finance team. 

Reporting to the Financial Controller but working closely with several heads of department, this is a broad ranging and interesting opportunity that would represent a fantastic opportunity for an experienced accounts assistant who feels that onward progression in their current position is limited.

- Aged debtor management and maintenance

- General ledger analysis 

- Other ad-hoc finance tasks and assisting with accounting projects

For this role we’re seeking a candidate who possesses at least 18 months of experience gained within a similar environment, either part/fully AAT or qualified by experience. Previous experience in the construction sector along with project costing experience would be desirable, though not essential for a candidate with the right aptitude. This is a team centred role that works with a range of internal and external stakeholders so excellent communication skills essential, as well as strong general IT aptitude.
