This position will suit you if you like to work hard, take pride in your work and potentially want to progress to become an Assistant Manager in the future.

Since we’re small, we retain a community feel, good working relationships with both colleagues and clients, and our accountants are able to see work through from start to finish. The office is nice and bright, we have the radio on, and all get along well.

The package
• Starting salary of £24-28k depending on experience
• Future progression opportunity to become Assistant Manager
• Plenty of on-street parking nearby
• 22 days’ holiday plus bank holidays
• Working hours 9-5:30 initially, but you could do 8-4:30 after probation if you wish
