Your responsibilities will include a variety of tasks including processing and placing orders, processing invoices, processing staff expense claims, supporting the preparation of year end files, reconciling the monthly supplier statements, plus many other tasks.
You’ll be motivated by working in an administrative role, problem solving and using IT systems.
