We currently have an opportunity for a Site Accountant to join one of our manufacturing finance teams, based at our produce site in Flaxby.
 
At our Flaxby site, close to Harrogate, Knaresborough and York, over 150 of our colleagues pack 65.5 million packs of carrots and onions each year. It is the only place where we source our carrots and onions, which means it's one example of our true farm to fork process.

  • Preparing period end management accounts including balance sheet reconciliations, in line with role requirements

Please note this is an initial 18 month contract due to maternity leave.
