Finance Assistant

Giggling Squid


Depending on experience

Full time


Giggling Squid is all about food with personality, cooked with expertise and shared with generosity. At our heart is the spirit of Thai mealtimes - plentiful dishes, bold flavours and exotic ingredients - to be shared and enjoyed together. We started in 2002 from a determination to do things differently. To be ‘one-of-a-kind’ and to bring some Thai generosity to the UK. Back then, what was missing from the food scene was that true Thai feel – energetic, informal, adventurous, and truly welcoming. We believe food is to be celebrated and you don’t have to dress up to enjoy it. Relaxed, no standing on ceremony – it’s about having a good time, over something tasty.

COMPANY CULTURE It’s important to us that everyone who walks through our doors feels as if they’re coming into our home. It’s our incredible people, from our skilled chefs to our welcoming front of house staff, and their shared generosity of spirit that lies behind every great guest experience. We now have a few more restaurants under our belt but the important stuff hasn’t changed since we started. We’re still as hungry as ever to give our guests a truly memorable experience, leaving with full stomachs and happy hearts. To achieve this, our teams work collaboratively and strive to uphold these values whilst taking pride in their roles.
