- A business does not require someone to work full time. But needs a person with more skills than an average office manager, or receptionist can provide.
- A company of any size cannot find a full-time employee with the required capabilities at an affordable cost to your organisation.
- A rapidly expanding company, looking for opportunities to scale their accounting & finance functions at any time.
