Ideally you will be fully qualified or at the latter stages of your ACA or ACCA finance Qualification.

You will need to be effective in time management and hold strong organisational skills, as well as being capable of leading a team. You will have strong IT skills, accustom to IRIS Practice Suite, Sage software, cloud based software such as Xero, and good on Excel. Attention to detail will be critical to this role, as is a hands on, 'can do' proactive approach. You will be commercially aware and confident working in varying environments and different business sectors.
