Responsible to:   Lead Development Worker / SCS board

Terms: Flexible working, family friendly employment and more are on offer

This role combines bookkeeping and business administration with some of the duties of an accountant – year end accounts, tax returns and payroll.  You will also be responsible for supporting ‘back office’ service delivery for clients, (maintaining and updating records, carrying out standard administrative processes and processing financial transactions), and some administration of training courses and CRM.

You will be enrolled on a course leading to a qualification in accountancy, and some of your hours will provide for your training and development in this role.  When you achieve your professional qualification, we will make you an offer for full time employment, or you may choose to seek work elsewhere (in which case a programme of repayment of our investment will be applied, not exceeding 10% of your previous annual earnings per year over twice the years worked as a trainee in excess of the years worked since).  You may also be asked to work away from the Taunton office to represent SCS (travel expenses will be met).
