Accountant

Bring your experience and attention to detail to a wide-ranging accounting role

With 2,000 employees serving over 14,000 students in 42 schools, the Nanaimo-Ladysmith School District provides top-level education in both traditional and alternative environments, including Learn@Home and specialty academies.

In this general accounting role, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to a wide range of accounting functions, gaining valuable experience and growing your career.

You will be responsible for ensuring accurate and complete recording of financial transactions including review of revenues, expenditures and accounts receivable with an eye to preparing standard and specialized financial reports as well as conducting account analyses and reconciliations. In addition, you'll be called on to support users of the district and school-based accounting systems.

Along with a post-secondary completion of third level/module of a recognized accounting program (CGA, CMA or CA), you have at least 3 years' experience including experience training users on financial reporting procedures and applications. Advanced computer skills, especially Excel, are expected, as is the ability to work in a high-pressure, deadline-driven environment while preserving excellent detail, precision and accuracy.

Located on central Vancouver Island, the district is ideally situated for easy access to the Lower Mainland and everything the Island has to offer—year-round recreation, Canada’s mildest climate and some of the most beautiful wilderness in the world.
