Fantastic global company that promotes environmental and social responsibility- this is an organization you can be very proud to work for! The company is growing quickly- headquartered in Canada but with operations in several other countries. Opportunity to work from the Vancouver office or remotely from elsewhere in Canada (working on PST hours). 

Who- the Company: 
SWIM is very excited to be representing this company to our candidate networks! Our client is a fascinating social enterprise company that is making a very positive impact in our world while still earning a profit. The company has operations on several continents. This is truly a company you can feel proud to work for and to grow with! Swim Recruiting will provide interested candidates with plenty more insight into the company’s values, vision, and culture. 

What- the Role: 
Our client is seeking a new Accounts Payable Specialist who will be accountable for the full-cycle processing of 100+ invoices every month. The responsibilities are diverse and will evolve with time. The below are some of the duties in this role… 
  • Preparing accurate weekly payments and setting-up pre-approved payments.  
  • Maintaining the approval process for all vendor bills and setting up new vendor accounts 
  • AP process improvements and related projects 
  • Performing credit checks 
  • Participating in weekly meetings with approvers to go over payments. 
  • Cash flow management 
  • AP reconciliation, including identifying any missing bills and invoices 
  • Forecast future vendor costs and payment timelines. 
  • Collaborate with various departments with regards to expenses and AP timelines 
  • Communicate with vendors and partners (over email, video, and phone)

Who- the Candidate: 
We are seeking candidates with relevant post-secondary education (related to accounting, business, and/or finance) and around 2 to 5 years AP and/or accounting work experience. Aside from the AP skills, the most important thing is for the AP Specialist to be a great match with the company’s culture They have a very fun-loving, friendly group of people at this company who care about our shared planet and leading a sustainable, environmentally friendly lifestyle. 
  • 2+ years of relevant work experience. 
  • Relevant post-secondary education. 
  • Intermediate to advanced proficiency in Excel. 
  • Very detail-oriented, analytical, and self-motivated, with a keen eye for process improvements. 
The corporate office is based in Vancouver, BC in a very beautiful part of town, right by the ocean. Ideally the AP Specialist would receive in-person training at the Vancouver office, and then work from home 3-4 days a week and from the office 1-2 days a week. There is potential for this AP Specialist to work from home full-time, though, if they are very self-motivated, efficient, and independent and don’t need much supervision. SWIM is considering candidates from across Canada- on PST working hours.  

How Much: 
Compensation commensurate with level of skills and experience- please discuss with SWIM!
