Job Description

Financial Data Analyst / Senior Analyst




Our client, a large public company based out of Downtown Calgary, is looking for a Senior Analyst for a 6 month contract to assist the Controller with a data cleanse and reporting project. This project has VP level focus and is highly important to the organizational restructuring plan and initially involves very hands-on data scrubbing and data manipulation in Microsoft Excel to allow for efficient analysis to identify oddities, with the goal of facilitating more efficient cost analysis and reporting post a new system implementation.


The Senior Analyst will work closely with and report directly to the Controller and will need highly developed business communication skills to effectively convey findings and results.


The Senior Analyst must be comfortable and skilled at performing the hands-on work which can be tedious performing the actual data dumping and scrubbing work. This role will need a strategic thinker who is able to speak clearly to ideas and recommendations or options for better analysis, process set up, or improvements for their end goal state. Additionally, this is a position that will troubleshoot issues and liaise directly with other functional groups in IT or other controllers and managers to gather informational requirements to assist with cleaning data and bridging to a reporting function.


The Controller leading this project feels there will likely be other related ad hoc requests and looking for a strong consultant with these skills but capable to be flexible and help in other areas overall to assist their team take this project over the finish line.
