My client are an established retail company with branches across the UK looking for an Accounts Assistant.

The role will involve joining a small friendly accounts team, in a busy role which reports to the Finance Manager. It is necessary that the candidate is a team player with a positive, can-do approach to their work and good communication and time management skills. You will have experience within a similar accounts role and be a quick learner as you will be joining the company at a time of growth and change. This role could suit either an experienced individual who is looking for a similar role in a new office environment or a slightly more junior accounts professional who feels ready to step-up into a more senior level accounts position.

The successful candidate will be joining an accounts team that is growing and is very fast paced. Experience of working in an atmosphere is key and you will be a positive team player. You will be motivated by success and pride in your work.
