Great news - We're recruiting for Commercial Finance Analyst.


Payzone Bill Payments provide a payment service for Convenience Stores, allowing Customers to pay bills, purchase tickets, top-up their electricity and gas meters, play the health lottery, pay for bridge crossings tolls, amongst many others.  A well-established company providing service for over 25 years with all staff based in a purpose-built office in Northwich.  Situated conveniently close to the M6/M56, it is easily commutable from most population centers in the North West: Liverpool, Manchester, Wirral, Crewe, Stoke-on-Trent and North Wales.
