First and foremost, The DPO Centre is a service business. We look only to work with proactive, motivated, enthusiastic, customer driven, commercially aware team players, who can clearly demonstrate a passion for what they do and therefore offer an ideal fit with our core values, mission and culture.

To support our continued growth, we require a Finance Officer.

As Finance Officer, you will be carrying out a wide range of tasks for finance and client services, so excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required. The role involves working with systems such as Xero, Scoro, Hubspot, and Trello, to name but a few.

You will be highly computer literate with demonstrable experience of organising, structuring, prioritising and planning and have a keen eye for detail. The post is office-based in Ipswich, Suffolk.

You must enjoy working as an integral member of our team but also be capable of managing your own workload to deliver high quality work that meets expectations and deadlines.
