About you

Our values are at the heart of what we do, and we will expect you to demonstrate these in this role, in dealings both inside and outside the organisation.

We are a small team with a wide range of responsibilities.  We are looking for someone who is excited to be involved with an iconic west Cornwall business, and is eager to learn and advance. A relevant finance background is desirable, although aptitude is as equally important.   Experience in using computers, excel spreadsheets and accounting systems (preferably Sage) are all expected, but a willingness to learn is just as important.

The business is keen to support personal development of its employees, and financial support can be offered to assist with AAT qualifications if this is of interest.
