Axon Moore are currently representing a National Business in Wakefield, who are looking for a junior finance assistant to join their growing team. The successful candidate will get the opportunity to work in a market-leading business in a company which has excelled enormously in the past few years.
The role will be offered on a temporary basis for 3-6 months. This is an exceptionally busy time within the business, so candidates will ideally be available immediately or on a notice period of one week.
About the Role
This role sits within the purchase ledger and treasury team. Taking on work from both teams, the role will be hands on and involve scanning invoices, clearing the inbox, sorting post and filing. Due to the nature of the business, there will be constant opportunities available to progress and learn, so this could prove to be a fantastic stepping-stone into a role offering wider responsibilities within finance such as utilising Excel to look at reporting and improving procedures. You will be encouraged to take on projects as you progress within the role.
The Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate for this role may not necessarily have existing experience within accounts but will be able to showcase a high level of accuracy in their work. Candidates must have proficient use of Microsoft excel (at a minimum V-Lookup, Pivot Tables and Sumif) and be able to manipulate large volumes of data.
This could be an excellent opportunity for a graduate from an accountancy-related discipline, or an AAT studier keen to take a step into a finance team.
The team is very sociable, so this role would be ideally suited to a good team player who is happy to work towards both personal and team targets – and reap the rewards for doing so!
With fantastic employee retention rates, the business prides itself on offering their staff the chance to grow and progress in their careers and strives to promote from within wherever possible.
