Why work with us?
Here, you’ll work hard and you’ll constantly be busy, but you’ll get a lot back too. Although we’re an international company, we’re made up of smaller groups of people who look out for one another. Which means you’ll have more than a few people to lean on, you’ll make different groups of friends and you’ll have an experience that gives you more than just a monthly salary – although that’s a pretty good thing too!
You’ll get a competitive salary and there’s even subsidised food at our café and canteen. Plus, with a gym, book club, running club, choir and plenty more, you’ll never want to leave the office!
What experience do you need to work with us?
- Should be working towards an Accounting (ACCA, ACA, CIMA, CPA or equivalent) qualification
- Some industry experience and a love of retail is an advantage
- English is essential and other European languages would be desired
