Situation Vacant: Bookkeeper for Country Estate


A vacancy exists for a competent bookkeeper to maintain the accounting records of three farming companies on a country estate 80 km south of Salisbury. The position is ideal for a person who appreciates country life and could be appropriate for a married couple.

The successful applicant will be required to write up the books and records of the three companies on a day to day basis, produce monthly trial balances, schedules of movements on various accounts, receipts and payments summaries and livestock reconciliations, and be able to type letters and statements for the managing director. Short- hand would be helpful but not essentials.

The employer offers a salary which is negotiate but not less than $250 per month with generous annual leave and provides an unfurnished 3-bed roomed cottage, servants, electricity and water free of charge.
