  • Allocation of costs to specific customers and accurately posting onto the system
  • Monitoring of contract costings
  • Monitoring of actual spend versus budget
  • Cost & margin analysis
  • Ad hoc project work

The Finance Assistant will initially be hired on a contract basis, with duration expected to be around 6 months, with a very strong chance of a longer-term position for the right candidate.

The Person

The successful Finance Assistant is likely to have solid foundations in all major areas of a financial transaction, including double entry, debits & credits, etc. They will be used to being part of a hard-working team, within a large, complex business, dedicated to producing output of the highest quality both in terms of detail and accuracy. The candidate we seek will have a strong knowledge of Excel, including formulas, and have a confidence & organisational capability that allows them to manage their own time and hit tight month end deadlines. This is a visible role, with scope for progression for the right candidate.
