Based in Kamloops, BC. Accounting & finance leadership role with a reputable real estate development company with strategic growth plans in place. Candidates who are serious about full relocation to Kamloops will be considered.

Who- the Company:
Our client is a well-established and reputable real estate developer that is quickly growing their presence in Kamloops. The company is well-diversified with properties in various asset classes. Additionally, the organization is well-resourced and there is a long-term strategy in place to continue to expand the geographic reach of their real estate portfolio.

What- the Role:
On behalf of our client, Swim Recruiting is searching for a Controller who will report directly into the top finance leader for the organization. This role is based in Kamloops, BC. The Controller will lead and mentor up to 5 direct reports on the accounting & finance team.  This is a diverse role spanning corporate accounting, financial reporting, financial system optimization, tax, financial planning & analysis, budgeting & forecasting, business decision support, and internal controls & risk management. One of the key projects in 2023 is to analyze and improve the company’s use of current financial systems and assess the ROI of potentially implementing a new system. Additionally, the Controller will work with Operations, Sales, Property Management, and other departments to optimize cross-departmental communication and collaboration. There are plenty of exciting short-term and long-term projects the Controller can take on, as well as a good deal of opportunity for career development within the organization for a strong performer.

Who- the Candidate:
We are looking for a well-rounded accounting & finance leader who enjoys wearing many hats, and who can be both hands-on and a big picture thinker. Although very detail-oriented, the new Controller will also be someone who can see the forest for the trees and who can figure out what is material to the business and what isn’t.

  • CPA designation is required.

  • Public practice training is preferred, not required.

  • We are seeking candidates with at least 8 years of relevant, progressive experience in accounting & finance.

  • Experience in the fast-paced and high-change real estate development sector is almost required; however, candidates who have worked in similar industries such as hospitality, restaurants, construction, or property management will also be considered. 

  • Qualified candidates for this role will be very strong with financial systems, including process improvements, automation, and optimization. Ideally candidates will have had direct involvement in a system enhancement or implementation project.

  • Experience as the second-in-command to the top finance leader of a mid-size organization is highly preferred.

  • Currently residing in Kamloops, or happy to fully relocate to Kamloops within 4-6 weeks.

Kamloops, BC.  We are open to qualified candidates who are seriously considering a move to the Interior from elsewhere in BC or even from elsewhere in Canada.
