We’re looking for a superstar Junior Accountant to join our fast-growing proptech business. StayBeyond transforms homes to unlock their full potential, helping vendors sell faster and for more. We’re not your average interior design or staging company - we host hand selected guests in our homes while they are on the market. We see hundreds of guests, gallons of paint, dozens of fresh flowers, and a hotel’s worth of fresh sheets move through our portfolio of homes each week. The finance team oversees all of the business operations, from security deposits, to revenue projections, to the annual shampoo budget. They’re an integral part of our success, and the team is growing to meet the demand placed on it as we scale.
In this role, the Junior Accountant will support the Finance Manager and work on all aspects of the business’ accounting cycle. They’ll assist with the reconfiguration of current processes and controls, as well as ad hoc requests on an as needed basis. As a Finance Team member you will have broad exposure to varied business functions including revenue management, onboarding, logistics/warehousing, operations and property management.
Who you are:
You have a 2:1 Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in accounting or finance, and a year or more under your belt working full-time in an accounting role.
You’re methodical, pay attention to the little details, and love playing with data. You have a keen eye for inefficiencies and know how to make recommendations when you spot them. You’ve got a good grasp of time management, especially with multiple competing priorities.
What you have:
Top notch Excel skills - Intermediate to Advanced knowledge is required. You’re familiar with common accounting software, and if you’ve used Xero before that’s a huge plus.
You’ve got solid presentation skills and can communicate effectively. You recognise when things are urgent and give them the right amount of energy and commitment. You like working with people towards a common goal. You take feedback seriously, and offer it respectfully.
What we offer:
Despite being the biggest decision anyone makes, the experience of buying and selling a home hasnt changed in decades. Buyers struggle to imagine themselves living in a home that is empty or in need of a refresh, which means it takes longer for vendors to sell, and often sale prices are dropped significantly. The whole experience needs shaking up for buyers and sellers alike, and that’s where we come in. StayBeyond is a team of design, property-management and hospitality professionals and we have made it our business to be the experts when it comes to designing homes that are made to sell.
Over the last five years we have transformed 150 properties and hosted over 60,000 guests (and counting) in our unique portfolio of homes.
From working closely with landlords in the rental market, it was clear that there was huge potential to bring our home transformation expertise to the for-sale market, and provide a service that makes sure vendors can get the most value out of their home sale.
We create spaces that are designed to be lived in; we inspire moments of ‘this feels like home’, ultimately helping vendors sell faster and for more. We are home experience experts.
