There is an opportunity for the successful candidate to complete an administrative traineeship (or similar) if you meet the eligibility requirements – but we will also consider candidates who aren’t eligible for a traineeship.

Duties will include scanning and filing, data entry answering phones, greeting customers and general admin tasks.

Who are Adventure Patch?

Interested in this role? This is what we are looking for

We're a bit protective about our team culture. This is a great place to work and we want someone who will add to that. We have strong team values and expect everyone to work according to those values.

That's why we are more interested in your character than your experience. If you have some work experience, that's a positive but it's not essential.

What is essential?

You need to be fresh and energetic, positive and professional. You will spend a lot of time communicating with customers, suppliers and other staff members - so that must be a strength.

We need someone who is equally comfortable taking initiative when there is an opportunity and following instructions when needed. A willingness to learn and be taught new tasks and a focus on solving problems will be critical

  • MYOB experience would be an advantage but isn’t required
  • Knowledge or experience in accounts payable and receivable experience would be an advantage
  • You must have or be able to obtain Working With Vulnerable People and police checks
