The Finance Department is looking to recruit an enthusiastic, professional and dedicated individual who will ensure our financial systems and controls are fit for purpose and are being adhered to across the organisation.  You will need sound audit skills, as well as the ability to develop policies, write reports and communicate effectively face to face.  You will be responsible for the day to day management of the finance IT systems, including Microsoft Dynamics GP finance database, eRequest purchase ordering system and the document management system.  Enjoyment of working with people is essential and you will need to work in an organised manner, managing your time effectively.  Travel to other WWT locations will be required.

We believe that showing people first-hand how extraordinary wetlands are can ignite their passion to help us conserve them, so we provide amazing experiences at our unique UK wetland centres for over one million visitors every year.
