About Kootenay Risk Services

In June 2014, four Kootenay region credit unions formed the Kootenay Risk Services ("KRS”) support organization. The founding organizations include Columbia Valley, East Kootenay, Grand Forks and Nelson and District credit unions. The core purpose of KRS is to provide the owner credit unions with risk management and compliance resources.

The Opportunity:

This is a unique opportunity to be a “one-person” shop responsible for the audit function of the four independent credit unions.  Reporting to the KRS Board, you will conduct a variety of internal audits in all business units including deposit, lending, financial planning, and insurance.  You will have direct functional relationships with the audit committees of the credit unions and act as advisor to the senior management teams in matters relating to internal audit, payroll, benefits, overall work organization, efficiency and cost containment.  You may supply contract internal audit services to other entities, on a relief basis.   

This is a permanent, full-time position.  You will work primarily from your home office with regular travel to the partner credit unions within the beautiful Kootenay region of B.C.

You bring the skills and experience to be accountable for the performance of the audit function and are also comfortable conducting the audits.  You are service oriented and build collaborative relationships with clients and external resources. You are an articulate communicator and can quickly build trust and confidence at the board and committee level.  As a self-directed learner you continually seek opportunities to enhance your professional skills and knowledge.  You are looking for a unique opportunity to apply your skills and make a meaningful contribution to the growth and prosperity of the Kootenay community credit unions that you serve.
