Key Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Dealing with customer queries on the phone/email/online chat/Amazon

  • Updating social media
  • Helping in the preparation of monthly accounts
  • Managing Expense claims

  • This role is office based but some flexibility is available around working hours and, in some circumstances, working location as all our systems are cloud-based and accessible from your laptop (Macbook provided)

  • All employees get a pair of wellies when they start as the woodlands around the office are too good to miss
  • Regular team lunches 
  • Occasional cake

This business has been trading for over 10 years, has a good reputation in its market and we're looking for someone who can help us continue this. Our office is small (4 people) but we're a happy team so we'd like someone to join us who can fit in and help keep it that way.
