    When recruiting for a trainee maybe you should detail the job description in plain English.

    For instance:

    Data entry
    Chasing information that the financial team see as irrelevant
    Making tea and coffee
    User of Excel
    Credit control
    Mass BCC emails
    Say nothing when Auditors are around
    Answering telephone

    From your description I'd be expecting 60k.
