Accounts Assistant opportunity

Permanent, full time hours

Up to £18k DOE

Wakefield, WF4

I have an opportunity to join an interesting retail business in the newly created position of Accounts Assistant. You will be joining an exceptional team of committed staff at a truly exciting time in their consolidation and growth phase. The successful individual will need to demonstrate these 3 traits: strong work ethic, versatility and excellent communication skills (both written and spoken).

You will be providing support to the finance manager carrying out transactional duties and processes, so this person needs to be comfortable acting on instructions, being agile in their response to multiple requests and willing to get stuck in to the job in hand without complaint. Because the team is small (perfectly formed and growing!) everyone needs to get involved doing things that may not necessarily be written in their initial job specification. This job sits within the accounts function and you will be providing support to the wider team.

This job will suit a motivated, conscientious individual with personality.
