This individual will undertake tasks that include month end reporting, variance analysis, procurement management, assisting in quarterly and annual budget preparation.

Substantial experience of working with computerised accounts systems and Microsoft Excel, Outlook and Word is essential.  Previous experience of the Agresso finance system would be desirable, but not essential.
