Sessional - Faculty (ACCT)



The Department of Accounting, Finance, and Law in the Bob Gaglardi School of Business and Economics at Thompson Rivers University invites applications for one or more sessional positions to teach the following courses during the Fall Semester 2023 (September through December):



  • ACCT 2210 Financial Accounting (8 sections)
  • ACCT 2250 Management Accounting (5 sections)


Additional sections will be available in the Winter Semester 2024 (January through April) as well as Summer Semester 2024 (May though early August).

All instruction is face-to-face, so the applicant(s) selected will have to be located near Kamloops or be willing to relocate. Classes are scheduled Monday through Friday, during the day and in the evenings. This is an excellent opportunity for accountants working in the community to teach part-time at night and share their knowledge with students just entering the industry. Those currently living outside Kamloops who are interested in full-time sessional employment of five courses per semester are also strongly encouraged to apply.

About the BC Interior

TRU is located in Kamloops, British Columbia. Life in the sunny interior of British Columbia provides immediate access to some of the most incredible outdoor experiences Canada has to offer ranging from winter sports at Sun Peaks Resort, to some of Canada's best mountain biking and hiking trails. Located between the coastal and Rocky Mountains, Kamloops is within 30 minutes from hundreds of beautiful freshwater lakes, and only three hours from Vancouver. With a relatively mild winter and spectacularly warm and dry summers, Kamloops offers a high quality of life. As a city with just over 100,000 residents, it is served by an airport, a hospital, a university, a WHL hockey team and yet still maintains a small-town feel where one never commutes longer than 15 minutes. It is a safe community to raise a family and still has reasonable housing prices.


The successful candidate should possess:




  • MBA or master's degree in accounting
  • Canadian CPA designation is required
  • Potential for superior teaching is required
  • Significant related work experience is preferred
  • Ability to use a variety of instructional technologies is preferred
