Brighton/ (FT) Payroll Clerk / Employer

antrams Registered Posts: 1

Thought I'd post an advertisement for a position at my workplace as it would be ideal for an AAT student (I recently completed AAT Level 2, 3 & 4 while working here).

The job advert can be found here but I'll include the details in this post.

Really friendly practice. Experience isn't at all necessary (when I started I'd been studying AAT for a month and had never worked in a finance role before) but what they'd love is someone who's really enthusiastic to learn, progress and work in an accounting role. They're happy to provide full study support for anyone looking to complete AAT either through distance learning, self study or attending college. Excellent start for AAT studiers looking for an entry level role.

Anyone who has completed the level 2 diploma in accounting and business (and thus studied some of the payroll modules) would be at a real advantage here as the role will be initially focussed around payroll.

Again, if you could apply via the link, the contact is Kate Lavender.
