You’ll ideally hold a professional accountancy qualification, however what’s more important is your exposure to and understanding of accounting procedures and purchase ledger processing. 

Organised and pro-active with lots of initiative, you'll juggle a varied workload, effectively balancing priorities and deadlines including project work. 

You’ll also have a keen eye for detail, which is critical in a role where faultless accuracy is expected from day one. 

Digitally fluent and with a customer focused approach, you're committed to ensuring the team provide an exceptional service to the organisation, and will know how to use finance systems to improve the user experience.
