The company
Our client is an established consultancy company working in the education finance sector. Now in their 9th year of trading, they are looking to grow the team.

They have many new projects on the horizon, so although they need someone to add support during this growth period, they are looking for you to continue your career with them. Therefore, although this is an Apprenticeship role, they are looking for a successful candidate to remain with them long after you gain your qualification(s).

The Person
Due to this being an apprentice role there isn’t a list of skills that you are required to have, but any finance, mathematics or business-related studies would be beneficial.

They are looking for someone with a great work ethic who is confident in face to face situations and wants to build a career in finance. They must have strong communication skills both oral and written.

There is great satisfaction from their work, and they pride themselves on delivering the best possible service to all of their clients – so this must be important to you also.

As a member of the team, you will be expected to present a professional image of yourself and the company at all times.

You will need a clean driving licence and access to a vehicle. You will also need a clean enhanced DBS check which will be initiated by the company at the time of employment.
