Cost Accountant

Full Time
A month ago
Fantastic opportunity for a bright, curious, and analytical Accountant with great interpersonal skills. Although this role is based in the accounting department, there will be a great deal of interaction with other departments such as Sales and Operations. 

Who- the Company: 

Our client is a well-established and reputable manufacturing company with a 30+ year history. The organization is known for the high quality of their products. The company has a strong management team, led by an impressive CEO and CFO. They have a very friendly, laid-back, and tight-knit culture and many of the employees have been with the company for many years. They are a values-based business, and they focus on hiring people who align with their values- collaborative team players who are innovative, ethical, and inquisitive.  

What- the Role: 

Our client is planning to hire a new Cost Accountant to join their Accounting & Finance team. Although this role is based in the Accounting department, there will be a great deal of interaction with colleagues in other departments- namely Sales, Operations, and Purchasing. The role will entail the creation, maintenance, and analysis of sales margins on the company’s constantly changing slate of products, including job costing based on the timelines to create and produce new items for customers. The new Cost Accountant will report into the Controller who in turn reports into an accomplished CFO. Swim Recruiting will provide interested candidates with a detailed job description. 

Who- the Candidate: 

Qualified candidates for this role will be excellent communicators who can establish great working relationships with their colleagues. Curiosity, organizational skills, detail orientation, and analytical abilities are all key! Candidates will also embody the aforementioned corporate values. 
  • We are seeking individuals with minimum 1 year and ideally 2 to 5 years relevant experience in cost accounting, management accounting, and/or sales analysis. 
  • Experience in manufacturing is preferred, but we are very open to candidates from similar industries such as retail and construction- industries with inventory/products and/or consulting jobs. 
  • Strong Excel skills are required, as is general “tech savvy.” Exposure to Sage software (Sage X3, SEI reporting) is a plus!
  • Relevant post-secondary education in accounting is highly preferred.
