Your Profile

You will ideally have:

  • Experience using Access Financials.
  • A hands-on approach to delivery of month end, financial reporting, and handling manual tasks as well as process improvement initiatives.
  • Prior experience in an interim / contract role would be beneficial but not necessary.
  • The rate of £400-450 per day represents a fair value, or logical increase on your previous salary or day rate.

Their highly impressive West London office is walking distance from multiple tube and rail stops. The company is very happy to have someone work largely remotely, to accommodate candidates based further from the office.
