They are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced bookkeeper to play a key part in their growth plans.

You will initially take on responsibility for existing day to day book keeping processes, & then work on developing more efficient ways to complete the regular accounting tasks involved in running a large online business - whether by automation or improving manual processes.
