Are you looking for a role that will give you more variety in your day to day responsibilities or a step-up from a transactional finance role?

You’ll be working as part of a team of three in finance based in Coalville, which forms part of a larger finance function. The transactional side of finance is completed at Group Head Office in a different location, allowing you the chance to get exposure to analysis, reporting and management accounts. The Finance Manager is open minded about your experience to date. She is happy to consider an experienced Assistant Accountant who is happy to operate at this level for the next 4 to 5 years or she’ll consider those who are studying for AAT, CIMA or ACCA and looking for a step away from a transactionally focused finance role. Study support will be provided if you are looking to progress with your qualification.

Personality fit is key. There are around 50 people in Coalville, all in the same open-plan office so you’ll need to be someone who enjoys getting out in to the business; liaising with and supporting all of the commercial departments.
