Williams Lake and District Credit Union has an exciting opportunity for an energetic, service-focused Senior Accountant to work out of our Williams Lake Branch.

 

The Community

 

Williams Lake is just a one-hour flight or a scenic day trip (546 km) north on Highway 97 from Vancouver, making it very easy to access. Within a three-hour drive, residents can also access the major cities of Prince George to the north and Kamloops to the southeast. Whatever cannot be found locally is accessible within easy driving distance on major highways. Williams Lake has many amenities, including a modern recreation centre and pool, an extensive trail network for mountain biking and hiking, arts and culture activities delivered through many clubs and societies, the largest shopping area in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, and the opportunity for post-secondary education offered through Thompson Rivers University’s Williams Lake Campus. http://www.tru.ca/williamslake.html

 

Affordable real estate offers an opportunity to own land only minutes from town and the ability to purchase a home within city limits at very affordable prices compared to many Canadian cities. With all four seasons represented and significant sunshine hours (308 days on average), Williams Lake is ranked number 5 across Canada by weatherstats.ca for the highest number of sunny days during warm months. There is plenty to keep outdoor enthusiasts busy. Surrounded by over 800 lakes, the area is a fishing hotspot. The dry climate makes it more likely to experience the outdoors in the sunshine when hunting, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking or enjoying winter sporting activities.

 

Overall, Williams Lake offers an affordable lifestyle for the family or the young adventurer.

 

The Opportunity

 

Reporting to the Manager Accounting and Centralized Services you will possess proven interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to work as part of the Administration department while serving our internal and external members.
