About You

We want someone – qualified/part qualified – who can point to solid accounting and finance experience, ideally in a small business environment and, better still, with experience in a company that offers ad hoc services on a project-by-project basis (therefore dealing with a range of clients and with bespoke costs per project).

If you can point to experience in a business with overseas clients and/or offices, that’s an advantage; as is experience using Quickbooks.

We are open to candidates looking for a four or five day per week role (or working hours the equivalent of).

To apply for this role, please get in touch with Andy Crysell, including a CV.
