The role is for a Finance Assistant to provide administration support for our client based in Cheshire working in the telecommunications and marketing sector.
This will involve providing general administration support to the Finance Manager and a large team of staff. The candidate will mostly be performing data entry, checking payments and raising invoices. Key to this will be a good understanding of Sage accountancy software - and your CV must demonstrate this.

The role is on a permanent staff part time basis: 5 days per week running from 10am - 3pm so may be particularly suitable for those with children - however some flexibility to work full time hours is essential as you will be asked to cover various holiday periods as required.
