Overview of the Company

Ski Amis is a profitable, award winning ski holiday operator with an annual turnover of just under £3 million.  The company currently operates 20 catered chalets in the French Alps along with related transport services, resort add-on services and a self-catered holiday program.  Established as a family business in 1989, the Company has undergone several growth phases during its history and is now poised to implement an aggressive strategy for business development over the next five years, the first stage of which is to develop a talented team to support us into the future.

The Role of Trainee Finance Manager

Initially starting in the role of Finance Administrator, with a defined progression path based on results to Financial Controller, the post of Finance Manager will be awarded on successful completion of the 3 year training program and gaining of the AAT qualifications, along with achievement of personal work based objectives.  The individual will be sponsored by the Company, under the government’s apprenticeship scheme, to train to Level 4 NVQ as an Accounting Technician (AAT), which will include eligibility for membership of the Association of Accounting Technicians.  The apprenticeship will involve a structured course of study, based around the workplace and gradually learning the job itself in a hands-on way through workplace training, home study and day or block release workshops over a period of four years.

Over the course of the apprenticeship, the person will be supported as much as necessary by our experienced Finance Manager, General Manager and the Directors and coached into the role, taking on the individual tasks in a phased way as competencies improve.  He/she will also be responsible for the development of his/her junior staff member, who will also be part of an apprenticeship scheme.

The Job

The initial tasks will involve dealing with company day-to-day financial accounting including sales ledger, purchase ledger, cash, bank reconciliations and payments.  The role will develop to include management accounting and reporting, budgets, planning and involvement in the preparation of year end accounts.  Final accounts are signed by an external accounting firm but internally we take care of all tasks up to their preparation, and ultimately it will be the Finance Manager who will be responsible for this task.  The objective is that you will eventually become an integral part of the business as part of the management team, with responsibility for internal projects and business analysis, pricing and financial modelling as well as the day to day accounting.

The Candidate

The successful candidate will be based at the Company’s Head Office in Maidstone, Kent but must be prepared to travel as necessary for the proper fulfilment of the role, including attending all training events in proper completion of the course and spending periods abroad in resort as necessary.

Applications are open to school and college leavers who satisfy the recruitment criteria below and wish to follow a course of further education in combination with proper employment opportunities and a real job.  Applications are equally open to older or experienced candidates looking for a change of career.  All applicants must satisfy the government requirements for apprenticeships.
