This place is so full of freeloaders, although you are doing it in reverse I suppose. Put an ad on Indeed you cheapskate!

There could be someone on this forum who needs a job. Also without knowing that the OP has advertised on other platforms, including paid ones, its a bit unfair to call them a cheapskate/ freeloader. Its possible to offer advice that is useful without being rude as I believe that doesn't help anyone.

Whatever happened to being kind!

Thank you Yesican - wasn't sure if the comment was worth a reply given that they knew nothing about where else I had advertised etc. Glad you called it out.

July is kind month. Both that and my original comment were, as if you hadn't guessed, tongue in cheek.

Whether the OP has advertised anywhere else is irrelevant to the point though. There used to be an "opportunities" section on AWeb for such things but it seems to have disappeared.

We have been looking to fill a similar position, there doesn't seem to be many quality candidates around right now. We have tried indeed and recruitment agencies too.

Most wouldn’t bother for £35k given the job spec. If you were offering £50k+ would seem more appropriate for that kind of role with 5 years experience you would be more likely to get a few candidates.

Thank you for the observation. I wasn't quite sure where to pitch the role and would be open for a discussion.

Depends where you are. £35k might well be the going rate in the Shires. In Great Metropolis, it's a trainee's rent and train fare.

Even though work from home is envisaged, that may not be for ever and it might encourage better candidates if they knew your location. And, perhaps, whether the interviews will be via Skype.

Give me 80K and I'll think about it ;)

Ahha, we have a candidate!

Steve, are you able to use Xero, QuickBooks Online, Taxfiler, and of course Syft Analytics? And would your wife allow you to work from home?
