Fantastic and unique accounting & finance leadership opportunity! This company is doing a lot of good in our world- both socially and environmentally.

This company is based in Vancouver and is very global in nature, and allows for a primarily work-remote model. 

Who- the Company:

SWIM is very excited to be representing this company to our candidate networks! Our client is a fascinating social enterprise company that is making a very positive impact in our world while still earning a profit. The company was founded over 5 years ago and has operations on several continents. This is truly a company you can feel proud to work for and to grow with! Swim Recruiting will provide interested candidates with plenty more insight into the company’s values, vision, and culture. 

What- the Role:

Our client is hiring for a new Director of Finance who will report into the CFO and who will have a small team of direct reports (local and International).  The DoF will manage the global accounting & finance team which spans 4 continents. This role is very diverse and involves a blend of FP&A, strategy, and accounting oversight. The Director of Finance will collaborate with leaders in various countries, and will be responsible for streamlining, automating, and consolidating processes. This is a dynamic and ever-evolving role, and we are looking for a strategic leader who thrives in a multi-cultural and ever-changing environment.! SWIM will provide interested candidates with a more detailed job description.

Who- the Candidate:

We are seeking candidates with at least 8 years and ideally 10+ years in accounting & finance, including 3+ years in a leadership role with 3+ direct reports.

Another crucial component is experience with growing, building, scaling, and improving (in terms of revenues, geographic locations, business lines, number of employees, etc.). The Director of Finance will be putting in place better processes and systems, and contributing directly to the company’s impressive year-over-year growth. Excellent relationship building skills with diverse stakeholders is vital (internal and external stakeholders, in Canada and Internationally). Speaking languages other than English is a plus.  
Aside from the finance and accounting skills, it is very important for the Director of Finance to be a great match with the organization’s culture.
