2 Positions: Accounting Assistant Administrative Assistant/Travel Support Specialist
For over 30 years, award-winning travel firm MIR has built a reputation as a pioneer in travel to destinations considered obscure, exotic, remote, difficult and even controversial -- from Tibet to Tehran and everyplace in between. MIR – from the Russian word meaning both “peace” and “world” – specializes in bringing people together to discover more about the world and, consequently, about themselves.
That’s where you come in. We are a very busy team of hard working travel professionals who are passionate about designing award-winning trips and delivering top-drawer service. Join us as an Administrative Assistant/Travel Support Specialist managing front desk duties and delivering superior internal customer service; or as an Accounting Assistant supporting MIR’s Accounting and Retail Tour departments.
We’d love to hear from you if you meet the qualifications:
•For the Accounting Assistant: You have 2-5 years of bookkeeping experience and are proficient in Accounting software AccountEdge (MYOB) or with multiple accounting programs. •You’re one of those people with an acute attention to detail -- flexible, but a stickler for accuracy and organization, and who enjoys dabbling in a database. •You’re passionate about helping others and would relish the opportunity to serve a well-traveled, internationally minded group. •You enjoy working independently with minimal oversight and don't get rattled having to meet constant deadlines. •You’re ok with an “old school” in-office position with classic office hours. •Cubicles in the sky are not your thing. Being in quirky Pioneer Square, in one of the city’s oldest buildings with tall ceilings and a funky charm and above a famous guitar store sounds just fine to you (yes we sometimes hear impromptu “concerts”). •You know your way around a Mac and are proficient in Microsoft Office as well as general office machines. •Learning about the day-to-day operations of a highly specialized entrepreneurial-oriented boutique adventure travel company is a place you can see yourself fitting right into.
