It’s not often that you hear CPA, CAs described as ‘innovators’ and ‘firefighters,’ but those two descriptors are among the top ones that come to mind when discussing this unique opportunity for a Manager, Finance.
This challenging, fast-paced role will bring you in on the ground-floor of an exploding industry. You will have the opportunity to impact both the daily and long-term finance function of a growing company while learning more than you ever thought possible.
Our client is one of the key players in the rapidly expanding medical and recreational cannabis industry in Canada. Having raised over $100M in funding prior to their successful IPO, they are poised to develop into a powerhouse in the industry, both in Canada and abroad.
They have already laid the ground-work by assembling the basics of a top-notch finance and accounting team. Now, they are looking for an ‘A’ player to work closely with the CFO and Controller to flesh out the finance function through the development and implementation of processes and structures, research and write IFRS position paper on issues unique to the cannabis industry, and spearhead their ERP implementation and special projects.
The Manager, Finance will also lead the quarterly and annual reporting process, provide support in due diligence and integration of future acquisitions, manage the internal and external audits, develop enhanced financial reports for senior management, and direct the corporate tax and commodity return preparation process.
In addition to excellent technical accounting skills and hands-on experience preparing financial statements under IFRS, the ideal candidate has the drive to develop new processes, take on new challenges, and put out fires in an evolving and fast-paced environment and industry. Excellent communication and relationship-building skills and the ability to work independently round out the profile.
A CPA, CA designation is required and preference will be given to candidates with at least 1 year of post-designation experience.
