The charity seeks to recruit an experienced Accounts Assistant to join them in a full time, permanent capacity. The role will be principally based in Truro but our client is very happy to offer a generous hybrid arrangement with up to three days per week operated remotely. 

Working closely alongside a highly experience Financial Controller, liaising regularly with colleagues across all areas of the organisation and external stakeholders, this will be a broad and interesting opportunity which would be well suited to a candidate seeking to broaden their range of experience. Key responsibilities to include: 

- Support the Financial Controller in maintaining the overall financial health of the organisation
