We require someone who is enthusiastic and motivated and able to work to a very high standard of accuracy. An exceptional eye for detail and excellent organisational skills are essential for this role and the successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate initiative in planning their own workload in a way that supports the work of the Senior Management team and the team.
