    What you'll get in return

    This is a key role in supporting the CEO by managing the entire finance function for the company and providing support and advice on HR and general operational matters. This is a hands-on role that will involve the individual in the entire spectrum of accounts preparation and finance management. The role will encompass tasks from data entry processes and cash management to the preparation of monthly management accounts and quarterly board reports.
