An immediate vacancy has arisen for an experienced office administrator to join the team on a job share basis.

The successful applicant will ensure that all financial transactions (purchase ledger, sales ledger, bank reconciliations) are carried out in a timely manner and treated correctly technically, and that journals and reconciliations are done on a daily or monthly basis in accordance with the finance schedule.
