We’ve grown fast since we started in 2015, and we’re about to scale very quickly. We need a qualified accountant Financial Controller or Finance Manager, to take the lead on on core finance functions. This is an ambitious, successful startup environment (superb YOY growth, already profitable, and well funded for expansion liquidity) and you’ll need to be an accountant or Financial Controller who is excited about setting up and operating a finance function that can scale with us. Probably you’ll be a Financial Controller or Finance Manager already with experience in hospitality (hotels or short-term letting) already, and looking to develop into a rock solid CFO.
StayBeyond is dedicated to providing outstanding accommodation to families & professionals, curated in cities across the UK. We are on course to double our revenue for the 3rd year running, while remaining impressively profitable.
We are building a culture that is as open, honest and ambitious as we are. We value personal ambition and enthusiasm, and face challenges together. We all have personal expertise, and we encourage open honesty in all our dealings with ourselves, our guests and our partners. As much as a new colleague will have specific responsibility, we also see each as a new member of the family, so you can look forward to instant recognition and the chance to shape and contribute to our culture.
StayBeyond currently offers 100+ homes nationwide (with more family accommodation outside London than any other company), using a unique model based on guest hospitality, innovative technology and superb relations with local communities.
The most important thing for any new member of the StayBeyond team to know is that you’re joining a startup. We are small and growing. There’s a lot do. Everyone is confident, honest, collaborative, seeks out big contributions, and is willing to do what is needed whether complex or mundane. We’re building a hospitality brand based on honesty and excellence, and that starts with our own behaviour.
If that sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you.
