For this role we’re seeking an experienced Assistant Accountant or Finance Officer with a proven track record of bookkeeping, maintaining and streamlining accounting processes and with good IT skills (ideally using Sage). Excellent interpersonal skills essential and some experience of supervising staff desirable (though not essential assuming the right aptitude).
