  • Growth forecasting and advice.
  • Experience with Harvest desired but not essential—training can be provided.
  • Retainer monitoring and management.
  • 15–20 hours per week—maybe more. Ideally prefer mornings five days per week rather than two or three full days.
  • Interaction with clients—needs to be friendly, polite, courteous, professional, and firm.
  • Needs to fit in with close-knit team.

Please note: we are a small team and as much as we value skills and experience, culture fit is really important to us, too. If you are interested in applying for this role, we have a questionnaire to fill out. Some of these questions are deliberately woolly—please be honest and don’t try to second-guess what we might be wanting you to answer.  It’s important for you, too, that we’re a good fit!

This will probably take 15–20 minutes—so feel free to grab a cuppa before you make a start!
