Financial Controller
Etobicoke, ON
$120,000-$140,000 base, bonus and health/dental benefits

Unfortunately, this role is no longer available.

Our client is a growing and established manufacturing company and due to dramatic growth, they are looking to hire a Financial Controller to lead their accounting/finance team. This is a newly created position as most of these functions are currently outsourced. As a key member of the company’s Management Team, the Financial Controller will lead and be responsible for the daily administration of the company’s accounting and financial activities, reporting directly to the owner and supervising a small team of junior accountants.

This is an excellent opportunity for a designated CPA Manager or Financial Controller coming from manufacturing who has some experience supervising a small team and wants to help this company move through all the growing pains that come with dramatic expansion. The position will allow the Financial Controller to have a broad focus versus a narrow one with a larger organization. We are looking for an individual who can lead by delegating responsibilities but also take a hands-on approach by rolling up the sleeves if and when necessary. Apply now – this owner is motivated to hire sooner rather than later.
