A high level of Excel is required as you will consolidate a number of companies using Excel.

What you'll get in return

You will get to see how the full workings of a that allows you to follow transactions from start to finish. When compared to a multinational a greater overview is achieved rather than looking after one area and never knowing the impact of your piece.

Working alongside the MD gives exposure to other business activities and decisions which allows the juices to flow into other areas. Your voice would matter a lot more in this size of business and you have the opportunity to make real change. The company is a nice size with a great team of employees who all work well together to create a nice working environment. A good work life balance is achievable and I believe this role would allow great job satisfaction.
