Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Posted on August 29, 2023

Public company. Great opportunity for a designated accounting professional seeking the next step in their career. We’re looking for technically strong accountants who enjoy diverse responsibilities, including financial reporting, budgeting & forecasting, financial systems, and tax. Working for a successful real estate investment company. Great corporate culture with many long-tenured employees on the finance team.

Who- the Company: 
Our client is a publicly listed real estate investment company headquartered in Vancouver, with operations and subsidiary offices elsewhere in North America. The company reports under US GAAP. There is great opportunity for new learning with this organization and steady career development over the years.

What- the Role: 
Our client is looking for a dynamic and hands-on individual to join their fast-paced entrepreneurial team as an Assistant Manager, Financial Reporting.  Please note that for the Assistant Manager title, candidates will have achieved their CPA accounting designation at least one year ago, with 6+ years of accounting-related work experience. This role could also be titled Senior Accountant for candidates who are freshly designated and/or with less than 5 years of relevant work experience.
The new employee will focus on financial reporting (under US GAAP) and tax (overseeing the tax work prepared by a Big 4 firm) and require an understanding of internal controls (SOX). The Sr. Acct will be in frequent communication with accountants working in Vancouver and in other offices, many of whom are CPAs who trained in a large public practice accounting firm.  
This is a well-rounded, comprehensive role and a great learning opportunity for a high-achieving individual. We’re looking for someone who enjoys being part of an entrepreneurial environment and is hands-on in their approach to solving complex and rewarding accounting issues. This is a unique and rare opportunity to have direct accountability for some of the accounting and finance at an established public company where you can get direct insight into the innerworkings of the business. SWIM will provide interested & qualified candidates with a more thorough list of responsibilities.

Who- the Candidate:
We are seeking designated CPAs (Canadian CPAs or US CPAs) with 5+ years’ of relevant work experience. Public practice training is preferred and industry experience is an asset. A high-performing Senior Associate or recently promoted Manager direct out of public practice can be very successful in this role.  Ideally seeking people with recent and relevant experience with public company reporting (US GAAP would be great!). We are looking for well-rounded accounting professionals with a track record of success in their career and education. Great communication skills and a high EQ are key. Strong Excel skills are required.  

How Much:
Base salary commensurate with experience, please discuss with SWIM. There is also an achievable performance-based bonus, good benefits and vacation time, and professional development support.
