Swim Recruiting is recruiting for a Recruiter- now repeat that 3 times fast!

Who- the Company:

Swim Recruiting is a successful and well-established boutique recruitment firm with a positive reputation due to our team of talented and dedicated recruiters as well as our honest and genuine business approach.  Swim was founded in 2007 and our company continues to grow- 33 people and counting! Swim Recruiters made placements with over 130 companies last year- companies that are publicly listed, private, public sector, and NPO, organizations in a wide variety of industries, small companies and huge companies.

At Swim, we believe that each person has their own style when it comes to being a successful Recruitment Consultant. We do not believe in placing unrealistic and over-bearing KPIs on the day-to-day running of your desk; instead, we trust your ability and give you the tools, space, and resources to do your job effectively and efficiently. We don’t micromanage… instead, we support you, trust you, and let you get on with it. As a result of the way we believe in doing business, we have experienced tremendous success in attracting the strongest candidates and developing solid relationships with some of the most respected employers in Vancouver.
  • 100% Vancouver owned and operated Company
  • Balanced work hard/play hard culture
  • Generous commission structure (that hasn’t changed in over 10 years!)
  • Flexible work schedules

What- the Role: 

Recruitment Consultant, working alongside many others on the successful Accounting & Finance, Administration, and Human Resources recruitment team. We work on entry-level roles right on up to executive-level roles, and short-term temp, long-term contract, and permanent positions. Swim’s most pressing need is for an experienced Recruiter who specializes in intermediate-to-senior level accounting & finance recruitment. Although we already have great candidate and client networks, there are still plenty of people and companies in this city and beyond that we could be working with! The sky is the limit for a driven Recruiter.

Who- the Candidate: 

We are seeking an experienced, talented, and self-motivated Accounting & Finance Recruitment Consultant to join our close-knit and top-notch A&F recruitment team. This will be a permanent full-time role, in which you will be surrounded by some of the best and most experienced recruiters in Vancouver under the leadership of well-networked and knowledgeable Vancouver recruitment veterans. We will be reviewing every application on a case-by-case basis but preference will be given to those with prior experience in Accounting & Finance recruitment, with secondary preference for Human Resources and/or Administration recruitment.

Culturally, you will be the type of person who loves to have a laugh at the office and you do not take yourself too seriously. You have an entrepreneurial mindset, take initiative, are results oriented, and have a strong sense of urgency. Swimmers are a fun bunch of people who like to work hard but also believe playing hard to be just as important; this relaxed and down to earth attitude has been key to our success with both candidates and clients who find it easy to relate to us on a personal level.

What- the Qualifications:

  • Over 18 months of full-cycle recruitment experience in a Recruiting Firm. 
  • Experience recruiting within Accounting & Finance!
  • Excellent communication skills- verbal, non-verbal, and written
  • Experience working on a high volume of diverse searches
  • Experience using an ATS as well as recruitment platforms such as LinkedIn

Where: 

Based at Swim’s super transit friendly downtown Vancouver office inside Waterfront Station- 601 West Cordova Street.

Why: 

We need to grow our awesome team to keep up with the amazing demand that we've created in the local A&F industry. We guarantee your days will be full and busy, with no shortage of searches to work on! At time of writing this posting we have 55+ searches open in Accounting & Finance alone.

How Much:

  • Swim offers two options- full commission (this has the highest earning potential!) or base salary plus lower % of commissions.
  • 23 “Swim Days”- to be used for vacation, personal days, family days- whatever you want! Plus, Swim often closes the office for a few bonus days at Christmas.
  • Health & Dental benefits
  • Cell phone plan reimbursement
  • Annual reward trip for top performers (2020 trip is to Mexico!)
  • Etcetera, etcetera… let’s talk!

When & How to Apply: 

If this role sounds like you and you want to hear more, please don’t hesitate to apply- hit “APPLY NOW” and send us your resume.  Swim Recruiting will of course fully respect all candidate confidentiality. We have hired recruiters from other agencies with non-competes.

Fantastic career opportunity with a global public company with operations in over a dozen countries. This is a diverse role that is great for someone who enjoys leading a highly complex payroll and benefits function. Our client is open to relocating a qualified individual from elsewhere in Canada and possibly from the US. 

Who- the Company: 

Swim Recruiting is thrilled to be engaged as the exclusive recruitment partner on this senior leadership payroll search. Our client is a highly successful and innovative international company headquartered in the lower mainland with over 20 years of history, approximately 1200 employees, and exciting projects on the go. The company has a fun-loving yet hard-working corporate culture with friendly and down to earth employees. If you are a proven payroll & benefits leader who is looking for a successful and exciting global company to work for, this could be the place for you!

What- the Role: 

Our client seeking a new Senior Manager, Payroll & Benefits who will lead the complex payroll and benefits function for close to 1200 employees across North America, Europe, Asia, and South America. Reporting into the Senior HR Director, and directly managing a Senior Payroll Specialist. The company has outsourced some of their G&A functions, and the direct payroll processing is now being conducted by reputable and large 3rd party solutions provider. The new Senior Manager will be responsible for change management, ensuring the SLA quality metrics are met, troubleshooting, and generally managing the smooth and efficient functioning of an outsourced payroll. Given this, the Senior Manager is not directly taking care of hands-on payroll data-entry and processing. This role may involve very occasional international business travel in the future. Swim will provide interested candidates with a thorough job description. 

Who- the Candidate: 

We are looking for a seasoned payroll & benefits professional with over 10 years’ progressive experience. The ability to manage change and effectively oversee a complex and nuanced payroll is essential.

It is only one-step removed from CFO and Chairman of the Audit Committee, and there is realistic opportunity for long term career-growth. MUST BE FLUENT IN SPANISH- written and spoken, professional and casual. 

    Who- the Company: 

    Our client has a reputation for excellence and a well-established history of over 25 years. The company has operations in 6 countries and growing. Some of their key operations are in Spanish-speaking countries, hence the requirement for fluency in Spanish. The company has impressive leadership and a positive corporate culture that encourages collaboration. There is a good “vibe” in their offices and operations, and you can tell that the people there enjoy working together. This company continued to hire in 2020, even when many companies were on hiring freezes due to the pandemic. Headquartered in Vancouver. 

    What- the Role: 

    Our client is seeking a Manager, Internal Audit to join their team (5 people in internal audit, including internal auditors at operational sites). This is a newly created role due to ongoing business growth. The role reports into the Chief Internal Auditor for the entire company, who in turn reports to the CFO and to the Chairman of the Audit Committee. There is good opportunity for a long-term succession plan and career growth- within internal audit or perhaps within other areas of accounting & finance. 

    Responsibilities are diverse and will appeal to someone who enjoys variety and who wants to get to know a company inside-out. The Manager, Internal Audit will execute and/or manage financial audits, operational audits, and perhaps even some IT audits. 

    Swim Recruiting will provide interested candidates with a through job description outlining the duties of the role in more detail.

    • Experience in one of the following project-based industries: oil & gas, petroleum, mining, forestry, chemicals, engineering.
    • Experience with IT auditing is a plus, but not at all required 
    • Public practice training from a multi-national firm is highly preferred, but not required. If candidates are coming directly from public practice, must have experience beyond external financial audit & assurance- perhaps a secondment, working in consulting or risk management practice, and/or frequent visits to client operations for internal controls and internal audit purposes. 
    • Public company and SOX experience. 
    • Ability and willingness- ideally eagerness!- to do international business travel. Over the average work quarter, the amount of travel will fluctuate anywhere from 25% to 50% of the time. Travel will be forecasted in advance so that the employee can plan their personal life accordingly, there will be no travel with little to no notice. Currently travel is very little due to Covid, but will ramp up again once most Canadians are vaccinated.

    The company’s corporate head office is in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Currently employees are working remotely, so the hired individual could work from anywhere in BC or perhaps a nearby Canadian time zone (Alberta).
