Established in Edinburgh in 2004, Absolute Escapes is an award-winning specialist in self-guided walking holidays and tailor-made travel in the UK & Ireland.
Our first-hand knowledge and meticulous attention to detail is key to exceeding the expectations of our clients from around the world. By listening carefully to our clients’ requirements and planning fabulous itineraries where the logistics work, we allow people to hold onto their spirit of adventure – no matter how busy their lives have become.
We’re never so lost in logistics that we forget that our holidays allow people to spend precious time reconnecting with nature, with each other, and rejuvenating. Each holiday we book is as individual as the person it is created for.
We are seeking to recruit a Finance & Operations Assistant – Intern as part of our continued growth plans. This would suit a recent graduate looking to gain some experience in the finance or travel industry. This internship is for a 6 month period with the possibility that the role will develop into a permanent position.
The role will play an integral part in assisting with the smooth operation of the finance side of the business by having responsibility for paying our numerous suppliers and partners as well as processing payments from our UK and international clients. The role will also involve operational duties including sending itineraries and information packs to our clients. You will be highly organised with excellent attention to detail and you should be comfortable working with figures.
All of our team are passionate about travel and the outdoors, so this role would suit someone with similar interests, as well as a good knowledge of the UK as a tourism destination.
While this is an office-based role, there is the opportunity to combine this with home working for 40% of your working hours. Absolute Escapes office is located in the heart of Edinburgh at Dovecot Studios, 10 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT.
The closing date for applications is the 28th January 2022, and we expect the successful candidate to start in February.
