I am a very organised person and have excellent skills in IT including MS Office packages and Excel spreadsheets.
In my previous role (if this is true) I have had some experience in an Accounts department and I feel that I am efficient and accurate in record keeping. I have also had some experience in running the monthly payroll which includes calculating any additional payment deductions including any student loan deductions and staff purchases of our staff.
