Greater Vancouver, BC Remote
Full Time
A month ago
Our reputable NPO client is seeking a new Accountant for an 8-month contract. Great culture, friendly team, very good work-life balance. Opportunity to work a hybrid schedule (office is near Vancouver General Hospital) OR to work remotely from home. 

Who- the Company: 
Our client is a well-respected and well-managed organization with a long history and an admirable mandate. This is a mid-sized Vancouver-based organization that you can feel VERY proud to work for and contribute to. 

What- the Role: 
Swim Recruiting has been engaged to identify a great new Accountant- Accounts Payable. Reporting into the fantastic Finance Manager and working with the overall organization of 40+ employees. This is an 8-month contract due to increased workload following the merger of 2 organizations. There is a chance for contract extension and possibly for conversion to permanent employment down the road. 
The Accountant will have a variety of responsibilities including processing AP, reconciling expenses to general ledger, process improvements as it pertains to payments, and supporting the implementation of a new accounting system. SWIM will provide interested candidates with a detailed job description. 

Who- the Candidate: 
Qualified candidates will have at least 2 years relevant work experience, including at least 1 year of experience processing accounts payable. Candidates will ideally have some experience working in a non-profit and/or health & wellness organization (but this is not required- a passion for/interest in the NPO sector is, though!). 
We are seeking people who are a great fit for a collaborative culture. Experience using an ERP is an asset and proficiency in Excel is required. Pursuit of CPA designation is an asset but not required. Qualified candidates will be self-motivated, with the ability to work autonomously from home.

The following soft skills are important in this role: 
  • Helpful and supportive colleague, with a team player attitude and a customer service approach 
  • Critical thinker who welcomes the opportunity to problem solve and to influence positive change
  • High attention to detail 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Quick learner
  • Adaptable to working with a wide range of people, including both internal and external stakeholders 
  • Professional, polished, and highly trustworthy
The corporate office is based in Vancouver in a transit-friendly location. The Accountant will work remotely from home until spring 2022. After that, the contractor can start working from the office 2 to 4 days a week, or can choose to continue working remotely. 

How Much:
