Farm Business Secretary – East Midlands

Farm businesses need to make a profit, feed people, care for the environment and ensure the planet will sustain future generations. It’s a tall order, but one which is endlessly fascinating. Backed by the Promar team, you will be in the best position to help farm businesses by balancing the books and managing their accounts.

Promar International is recruiting for a remote working Farm Business Secretary (also known as Farm Business Analyst) to provide bookkeeping and management accounting for customers on a full-time, permanent basis in East Midlands.

As a Farm Business Secretary, you will be responsible for a portfolio of customer farms assigned to you by Promar International. It will be your responsibility to manage your diary and caseload – the business will measure outputs by income and workload target. If you’re looking for a career opportunity with flexibility to compliment your lifestyle, apply with your CV today.

The Promar International team will provide you with the training and tools to excel in your role, including a company car, mobile phone and laptop. You will work at the customer farm to complete most of your tasks; you will have the freedom to complete some tasks remotely from home. Promar International is implementing new accountancy software (Xero and Figured) to enable digitisation and efficient processes. Your initial training will include work shadowing and observation, followed by on-the-job learning – upon completion of your induction training; you can expect to attend group training at least once every two months.

The opportunity of Farm Business Secretary offers flexibility and career advancement. Whether this is your first accountancy role or you’re an experienced accountant, apply now with an up-to-date CV.
