Over the sixteen years that my client has been in the UK the team has grown to over 24 highly motivated, professional individuals working within various specialist functions. My client has a culture of teamwork and openness. The employees are encouraged to grow by taking ownership for their own areas of responsibilities, and by developing new skills and expertise.

  • Excellent attention to detail and organisation
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Good working knowledge of Excel
  • 1-2 years’ experience in a similar or junior accounts/administrative role
  • Knowledge of Sage 50 Accounts and/or Yardi
