Future prospects

Sky's the limit - Sytrus is great.

We're 5 years old and just entering into a new phase of the business, the right candidate has the opportunity for huge career development as we expect to continue to grow as they develop - we'll be actively looking for more roles in the leadership team and we hope for these to be internally trained team members first.

We're also keen to work with less-ambitious candidates though, we recognise that AAT is enough for some people and would also value nurturing some long-term bookkeepers and administration staff.
