We are recruiting for a Bookkeeper to be located in the Students' Association Building at Glasgow Caledonian University. You should have at least three years relevant experience in bookkeeping or financial administration and in using Sage Accounting and Sage Payroll. You would be working on your own in a busy environment where you will engage with lots of students, so you would need to be able to juggle priorities and be comfortable meeting lots of people, although you will be supported by a Management Team and an external Accountant.

We are interested in capable employees of any age and welcome applications from people from a range of backgrounds. You don't need to have been to university or college to apply for this role, we are happy to support you in developing your knowledge about our Students' Association. We want to foster a diverse and inclusive working environment.

This is a full time fixed term post until September 2023. There is a one off payment of £750 for successfully finishing the fixed term contract. The role is 35 hours per week, normally 9am to 5pm, between Monday to Friday. You may choose to opt into the Flexi-Time Policy and work from home at least one day per week.
