Intrepid Travel was born in 1989 with the simple mission to create positive change through the joy of travel.

More than 34 years later, we’re proud to be a certified B Corp with more than 1000 small group trips in over 120 countries. After all these years, we’ve stayed true to our mission, ensuring our adventures are good for the places we go, good for the communities we visit and good for our travellers. That’s why we carbon offset all our trips and support local communities but we’re not stopping there. We want to be the best travel company not just in the world, but for the world.

The world needs more Intrepid people: 

 

The Senior Finance Assistant, reporting to the Account Receivable Manager, is responsible for overseeing account receivables processes while providing support to the EMEA, North America DMCs, and Sales Offices finance teams in transactional processing.  

 

Key duties include invoicing both internal and external partners in adherence to agreed terms, ensuring prompt collection of invoice payments, and recording local sales and commissions efficiently. Upholding a high standard of customer service, including inter-company relations, is essential. Additionally, the role involves generating accurate monthly and annual finance reports, such as monthly revenue analysis and customer aging reports, for submission to relevant stakeholders. 

 

A passion for travel is a must! With it, you’ll bring:  

 

  • Relevant tertiary qualifications in accounting 

  • Practical accounts experience, preferably in a foreign invested business

  • Experience using Microsoft Office, particularly Excel and other accounting packages 

  • 1 years’ experience in similar function is desirable  

  • A friendly, flexible, adaptable manner who collaborates well and is a team player!  

 

You will have strong time management skills and be able to deliver on objectives within timeframes, but most importantly you will share Intrepid’s core values of integrity, innovation, fun, passion, growth, and responsibility.
