Bring your financial skills north, to the welcoming community of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. We are a community of about 20,000 located on the shores of Great Slave Lake, providing access to incredible world class fishing (and other outdoor water activities) over the summer months and serving as a launching point for winter snowmobile adventures or making cross country skiing tracks. In addition to the outdoor activities there are plenty of other programming and social options for a wide range of interests. 


In your role as the Financial Coordinator you will join a team of five other financial professionals providing a full range of financial and accounting services on behalf of early childhood development and Kindergarten to Grade 12 education programs. This position requires the ability to apply accounting concepts and principles to create useful information that supports decision making while also identifying transactions that require additional investigation to ensure compliance with various Acts, regulations, policies, or legislation.  


You will also need to have proven financial management skills with the ability to prepare and analyze accounting documents combined with strong critical thinking abilities that enable you to review and analyze complex financial issues concerning budgeting and expenditures.  


To be successful in this role you will typically need to have completed a Bachelor’s degree in business, commerce or a related field combined with having completed a recognized Canadian Professional Accounting Designation and have three years of related experience including senior financial analytical responsibilities.
