Are you a self-motivated, enthusiastic, customer focussed individual with experience of working in a busy administration and finance environment?  Do you enjoy taking ownership of a task and developing processes to support service requirements?

If you have a proven aptitude for providing professional administration and financial support, with excellent interpersonal skills and ability to communicate financial matters effectively, then this could be an ideal opportunity for you.

To be successful in this role you will need to demonstrate*:

  • Significant experience of administering financial information
  • Experience of manipulating and analysing financial information and communicating this effectively to all levels, both internally and externally
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Proactive, and able to use your own initiative

  • Strongly customer focussed
  • Experience of developing financial systems
