PCI Developments employs approximately 30 people in their downtown Vancouver corporate office, and they share the space with their sister company, Warrington PCI, which is in the business of property management and leasing and employs over 40 people. Employees tend to stay at PCI a long time as they have a culture that promotes long-term development, plus due to the nature of their diverse projects (master planned and multi-phase projects, almost all asset classes) the work is very interesting and challenging. 

    Swim Recruiting has been formally engaged by PCI Developments to conduct recruitment directly on their behalf. The Consultants at Swim will be conducting initial phone screens followed by an in-person interview at Swim’s office.

    PCI Developments is seeking a new Project Accountant who will take on an exciting, challenging, and complex portfolio of real estate development projects.
