The role sits within the core Finance team and helps to ensure the smooth running of the day-to-day financial record keeping.

We understand the importance of work-life balance and are open to applications from part-time workers wanting to work 20 hours per week, but we are not set on how those hours need to be completed.
  • Your place of work will be our Cardiff office as we value face-to-face collaboration but there will be opportunities to work from home. Our expectation is that new team members will need to be in the office for up to 80% of their week in the early days of their employment to receive training and guidance to ensure they get off to a great start. We will discuss opportunities to work from home more frequently once the training period is complete.
