Are you looking to apply your skills with a company that has a long track record of growth and success?

We’re an automotive parts manufacturer who strives for perfection in everything we do: whether we’re providing the very best in parts to a range of clients, or providing a safe and positive workplace for our employees, dedication, commitment, and consistency are the hallmarks of our ongoing success.

We’re looking to add a new member to our corporate finance team, and if you have what it takes to manage the challenging tasks of a busy, global finance department, then we want to hear from you.

Financial Analyst

In this position you will have the opportunity to work on several major projects with company-wide impact. You’ll play a key role in assisting with the implementation of our new Cognos suite of tools. This project will push your data analysis skills, as you amalgamate complex data sets from multiple sources to create meaningful information for our Senior Leadership Team.

As a subsidiary of a publicly traded company, data integrity and accuracy is critical, as we modify existing reporting processes to adopt a more automated process. You’ll work on continuous improvement projects, and help ensure that we always meet or exceed internal customers and parent company requirements. You’ll also be involved in helping with compliance activities relating to recent government funding initiatives, and assist with the creation and presentation of strategic initiatives to Senior Leadership.

Working with the Cognos suite of tools and Excel, you’ll maintain accurate records, provide periodic insight and variance analysis to Senior Leadership. Working alongside the Manager of Financial Reporting and Analysis and other key personnel, you’ll find opportunities for improvement in capital and sales reporting, as well as standard financial reporting processes.

Aside from exceptional financial acumen and data analysis skills, we’ll be looking for someone who is:

  • Motivated – you’re always looking forward to the next task, and don’t need someone telling you to take initiative because you’re already on top of it.
  • Technically inclined – you enjoy technology with a desire to learn new systems
  • Attentive to detail – you pay attention to the small things that add up in the big picture. Nothing gets past you.
  • A great communicator – when it comes to working with others or reporting to management, you’re always keeping clear, open lines of communication that keep everybody informed.
  • Organized – whether you’re dealing with numbers or time management, you’re constantly aware of the deadlines and metrics that matter.

Your success in this role will depend on your ability to execute every task with thoroughness, precision, and accuracy. You’re dedicated to excellence, and are eager to embrace this career defining opportunity.

Working With Us
This is a full-time, permanent position, with hours from Monday to Friday. We offer a competitive salary that will be commensurate with your skills and experience.

We are committed to getting better every day, and work to create an environment that brings out the best in every employee, develops leaders, and rewards results.

Our employees have many reasons why they love working for us, but one thing they mention again and again is the quality of the team. Teamwork is key, and we work hard to foster a group that is motivated to get the job done, together.

Qualifications

  • University degree in business, economics, finance or similar
  • CPA designation, or be actively working towards it
  • 3+ years work experience in financial analysis
  • Experience working with complex data sets
  • Expert level knowledge of Excel (ability to build dynamic models to solve complex business problems) and advanced knowledge of MS suite
  • Experience working with ERP systems and desire to learn new systems
