Absolute Escapes is proud of our reputation for providing quality holidays and the highest standards of customer service. As each holiday is individually booked, we offer a personal service to our clients where attention to detail is the key.
As part of our continued growth plans we are seeking to recruit a Finance & Operations Assistant intern, which would suit a current undergraduate or recent graduate looking to gain some experience in the finance or travel industry. The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic and professional individual with a high attention to detail. It would be an advantage to have an interest and passion for travel and the outdoors.
You should be highly organised with strong numerical skills including basic mental arithmetic skills. A strong attention to detail with a methodical approach to work is essential, as is the ability to work on your own initiative. You must be able to communicate confidently at all levels with a high standard of English grammar and spelling. Candidates should have excellent computer skills including fluency in MS Word and Excel. Strong problem solving skills plus the ability to think outside the box will be required.
Experience of working in a similar finance or operations role within the travel industry would be an advantage but is not essential, as full training will be given. As you will be working with the tours we feature on our website a genuine passion for walking and the outdoors and knowledge of Scotland as a tourism destination would be advantageous. As we are a small entrepreneurial business we welcome candidates with a friendly personality and a ‘can do’ attitude.
Please submit a CV and brief covering letter describing your favourite place in Scotland. This should be submitted through the Adopt an Intern online application form on our website. State a. your availability and b. how your skills/experience match the requirements of the job. We do NOT accept e-mail applications unless otherwise stated.
Please confirm your eligibility to work in the UK.
