Job Description

Accounts Administrator
I am delighted to be recruiting for an Accounts Administrator for a well-known, family run engineering business. Established in 1955, my client is a trailblazer in their industry and continually strives to create and implement sustainable mechanical and electric engineering services.

My client has a generous renumeration package on offer to attract the best talent, in a very competitive market.

  • Dress down Friday

Initially the role will be in office. However, my client is undergoing a digital transformation process which will be completed in the next 18-24 months, which will eventually allow for a hybrid work element.

The Role
The role will encompass all aspects of the finance function and will be best suited to a multi-faceted finance professional. There is an element of payroll within this role, which is carried out on a weekly basis for a total of 60 employees.

The Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 3 years' experience in a similar accounts-based role and be willing to learn new aspects of a busy finance function. It is not essential to previously have carried out payroll processing, as this can taught in-house. It is, however, vital that the successful candidate has a good understanding of the AP and AR functions and have strong Excel skills to produce pivot tables and V-lookups.

HNC/HND Accounts
