Job Description

The successful candidate will play a key role in the selection and implementation of a new in-house payroll system. Good commercial awareness, and the ability to analyse financial information for the senior managers and directors is essential; as is the ability to problem solve, work independently and within a team.

It is located in a very pleasant rural location so a full driving licence and car is required. The post is office based.
