Job description

The successful candidate will be joining our small and supportive team based at Krowji in Redruth. You will be working primarily alongside the finance manager and business development manager to undertake a wide range of duties including:

  • Inputting financial information into the bookkeeping system and helping to maintain the accounting records.
  • Undertaking general administrative tasks such as filing, photocopying and answering the telephone.
  • Managing booking of external events and projects.
  • Ordering any stationery or general office supplies that may be required by the team.
  • Maintaining data within the new database once it is fully set up.
  • Contacting museums to collect data (for example their visitor numbers).
  • Supporting the team to run training events when required.
  • Undertaking any other work as requested by the team.
