What we are looking for a is a highly curious and analytical individual with a strong background in Finance who can act as the go between the payroll team and the Head of Finance. The position is based in central Glasgow with a flexible working model that is part home-based and a salary on offer of up to 42k + some fantastic and unique further benefits.

Ideally, looking for someone who has built up a strong career in finance, potentially someone qualified by experience or part-qualified who has interfaced with Payroll in some manner previously in their career. You will get the opportunity to join a close-knit team in a positive environment. The industry is highly interesting and fast moving so we need someone who can think on their feet and add value by helping to improve reporting and translate the financials to the people in the team who are more focused on Payroll. You will get the opportunity to business partner with multiple stakeholders across the business in the UK & Beyond.
