Well-rounded full-cycle accounting position. Reporting into an excellent VP Finance who will mentor the Senior Accountant in new areas of accounting & finance. Initially focused on multi-entity financial reporting (under ASPE), with time the Sr Acct will do more and more financial planning & analysis (budgeting, forecasting, financial modeling). Using QuickBooks and Excel. Based in North-East Richmond, off Hwy 91. Amazing leaders to learn from! Great culture and work/life balance! 

Who- the Company:

Our client is in the fascinating and ever-changing logistics, supply chain, and transportation sector. The company is very well-resourced and has a bright future. They recently built an impressive new facility and there are further growth plans in the works. The business currently employs close to 25 people, with approximately 10 of those working full-time in the corporate office. The Accounting & Finance function is led by a great VP Finance & Accounting, and there is also an Intermediate Accountant and a Bookkeeper on the team who mostly take care of AP, AR, payroll, and bookkeeping tasks. The company has an impressive leadership team, many of whom have worked with large global publicly-listed companies and who are excited about being in on the ground floor of this company and about the anticipated growth. 

What- the Role:

Given the company’s growth plans, they have created a new position for a Senior Accountant. The Sr Acct will report directly into the VP Finance & Accounting and will interact regularly with leaders in other areas such as operations, logistics, and corporate services. Initially the Senior Accountant’s responsibilities will largely centre on financial reporting- preparing multi-entity financial statements under ASPE and preparing routine and ad hoc reports for senior management and a private equity firm. 
Additionally, the Senior Accountant will review the work being done by the Intermediate Accountant and Bookkeeper on the team, mostly within accounts payable, accounts receivable, and payroll. The Senior Accountant will need to be hands-on enough to still be able to step in and support those transactional accounting functions if/when needed (i.e. when more junior team members are off on vacation- the VP Finance is also cross-trained on AP, AR, and payroll).  

With time, once they have a good handle on the financial reporting, the Senior Accountant can take on more and more FP&A tasks including budgeting, forecasting, financial modeling, and business decision support. The estimate is that this role will eventually become 30% to 40% analytical in nature. The systems used in this role are Excel, QuickBooks, and SharePoint, and as the company grows the team will look at implementing larger, more sophisticated systems and tools.  

Who- the Candidate:

We are seeking well-rounded Accountants who have 4 years or more of full-cycle accounting experience. CPA designation is highly preferred, but candidates who are seriously pursuing CPA but not yet designated will also be considered (i.e. over halfway through the program, on track to achieve designation by 2024). Excellent business communication skills are required in this role, as is proficiency in Excel. 

Where:

The corporate office is in North-East Richmond, conveniently located right off Hwy 91- a good commute for people living in South Vancouver, South Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta, parts of Surrey, and- of course- Richmond! Most employees drive to work (there is a bus line, but not very reliable) or cycle in the summer, and there is free employee parking available. 
The company has a great corporate with a free gym on-site, a kitchen, and a lovely patio for socializing. Most of the corporate employees are in the office Monday to Friday, and there is a culture that really promotes onsite collaboration and team building. There is some flexibility for occasional work-from-home days in future- please discuss with SWIM. 

How Much:

Base salary is commensurate with experience, skills, and accounting education. Additionally, employees receive a bonus, full PD support (i.e. CPA membership fees and relevant courses), paid time off, etc. This company provides good work/life balance, with very limited overtime. Please discuss further with SWIM. 

When & How to Apply:

SWIM is presenting the profile of shortlisted candidates directly to the VP Finance & Accounting for his review. There will be a 3-step interview process (at least 1 in-person meeting), and the finalist will likely get to meet the CEO and other key leaders on the team. 
If you are interested in this great opportunity with a successful and growing Canadian business, please do not hesitate to apply as this search is moving very quickly!
