Apprentice Accounts Assistant

We have an amazing opportunity right now for an Apprentice Accounts Assistant at our busy, friendly office in mid-Devon. Our business is growing, so we're recruiting an apprentice to support our Finance Manager in the day-to-day running of our accounts. This is no ordinary accounts department however; the lucky candidate will also learn a lot about how a medium-sized business operates.
If you have attention to detail, great IT skills, a sense of humour and are team-focused, then you'll fit right in! 
We're looking for someone who's enthusiastic to learn. You don't need financial experience, but you do need to be numerate and have 5 GCSEs at Grade A-C or 9-4. 
You'll gain knowledge of how to use accountancy software and we'll support you through your accountancy qualifications, but the working environment is really varied so you'll pick up loads of other useful skills too. 
As you develop and take on more responsibility, this will be reflected in your pay. So don't delay, apply today! Email your CV and a covering letter to Julia Crabb, HR Administrator, julia@woofenden.com or call 01884 266055 for more information.
