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.
Generous base salary commensurate with experience, skills, and qualifications, plus upside based on performance and results. Please discuss your total compensation expectations in detail with SWIM.
