Our new Finance Assistant will be a key member of our small and friendly Finance Team, entrusted with ensuring the integrity and accuracy of all our essential finance data. You’ll be working alongside two experienced accountants who will be able to offer guidance and support when required. You will enjoy working in a process-driven environment, which requires a high level of attention to detail.

You will be responsible for:

  • Purchase ledger – invoice input and payment runs
  • Bank reconciliations
  • Company credit card management
  • Sales ledger management – invoicing and credit control
  • Expenses
  • Maintaining accurate, auditable financial records
  • Fixed Asset register – issuing new phones and laptops, when required

We are a small, friendly team of three, so this role would suit someone who is looking for exposure to a wide variety of accounting functions. We’re searching for someone who can work in an organised manner, with accuracy and diligence. Previous accounts experience is highly desirable, however we would consider someone who is enthusiastic and willing to learn. Xero is our accounting package, but if you haven’t already seen this great tool then we will train you up in no time. Support for relevant study may also be available to the right candidate.

While lots of people who work at British Triathlon love sport, or just getting out in the great outdoors, this isn’t essential! We aim to employ a wide mix of different people who can bring a variety of skills and passions to the workplace. So, if you think this role sounds like a good fit, but you think you might not be sporty enough to fit in, please don’t worry - we’d love to hear from you.

Successful working relationships are key to any role. Our new Finance Assistant will report into the Finance Director. The successful candidate will be an integral and valued member of the Finance Team and is likely to thrive through developing and maintaining close working relationships with all teams across British Triathlon.

The role will benefit from our successful hybrid working model, where Tuesday to Thursday all colleagues work from our Loughborough head office, providing a supportive, collaborative, and fun working environment, and flexible working on Mondays and Fridays, working from home as work commitments allow.

British Triathlon offers a competitive benefits package that includes:

  • 25 days annual leave, increasing with length of service, enhanced with a flexible holiday buying scheme
  • A commitment to your development, with weekly and monthly time ringfenced for personal and collaborative learning and development
  • 2 days paid volunteer leave per year
  • Free and accessible parking outside the Loughborough head office and secure covered bike storage
  • Pension scheme, life assurance scheme, and private medical insurance to care for you and your loved ones
  • Support for a healthy lifestyle, including discounted gym membership and a cycle to work scheme

British Triathlon is passionate about developing an environment that makes Britain the world’s leading triathlon nation, enabling success and increasing participation. We’re looking for people that can bring skills and ambition to an inclusive, people-centred workplace, who are determined to create positive impact, and who value doing what’s right above doing what is expected.
