Your Role:

Are you a proactive, positive and flexible Finance Assistant with experience working within a busy finance environment?

You’ll play a key role in supporting and assisting with the company’s day-to-day financial activities, from completing bank, sales and purchase ledger reconciliations, maintaining financial records through to preparing management and year-end accounts.

You’ll be happy responding to customer queries in an accurate and professional fashion, whilst delivering excellent levels of customer service. Working across the business, you’ll liaise with all departments to support your colleagues with their own financial tasks, meaning you’ll get a real, practical feel for how the business works – not to mention the opportunity to develop your skills.

The Travel Chapter Group, incorporating Holiday Cottages and other holiday cottage acquired businesses, is an award-winning holiday letting company with over 25 years’ experience specialising in quality holiday properties across the UK. We pride ourselves on our extensive and varied portfolio of properties, and always strive to exceed the expectations of our holidaymakers and property owners alike.

Working in the stunning North Devon town of Bideford with 3 beautiful beaches, you can expect to work for a British Travel Awards winner for excellence in customer service. With fast approaching 200 staff and a thriving portfolio of 3400+ properties across the UK. If you thrive in a progressive, marketing centric, versatile and dynamic team environment, this is the career move for you.

Your Experience:

Excellent organisational skills with the ability to prioritise and multi-task. To ensure deadlines are met and accurate financial records are maintained.
Comfortable undertaking a range of financial tasks, you’ll have experience working within a finance or management accounts department with strong numeracy and computer skills and good experience working with Microsoft Excel and computerised accounting packages.
You won’t be fazed by the idea of working in a fast-paced environment with changing priorities. The ability to deal with problems in a calm and methodical manner is essential.
You’ll be adaptable in your approach, quick to learn (particularly in technical areas) and possess strong communications skills. An industry standard qualification in a finance or accounting subject would be beneficial, but not essential.
We want someone who’s genuinely interested in our business, and keen to grow with us as part of our dynamic team; this is a real opportunity for a hands-on, progressive role with a strong team feel.
