SaskCentral provides a balance of energy and support to employees. Under the direction of a new CEO, SaskCentral is on a multi-year enterprise-wide transformational journey with continued focus on ensuring the success and financial viability of Saskatchewan credit unions. The role of the Accounting and Reporting team in this journey is to provide accurate financial reporting for stakeholders and high-quality financial support for the organization.
One of the advantages of working for a smaller financial institution is that you get exposure to a wide variety of financial aspects while also building your supervisory experience. SaskCentral supports the provincial credit union system and in this position, you collaborate with internal and external stakeholders to ensure accurate and timely financial information is provided.
One position currently leads SaskCentral’s monthly, quarterly and annual financial reporting for internal departments, management, Board of Directors, regulators, external auditors and tax consultants. This includes reviewing financial statements and supporting documentation, preparing annual financial statements and annual note disclosure. You will coordinate the annual external audit process, various internal audits, and lead the preparation of required tax returns, acting as a liaison for our external tax consultant.
The second position currently oversees the development of the SaskCentral annual budget and the accounts payable/receivable (AP/AR) processes at SaskCentral. You will support department managers to prepare their budgets and coordinate the compilation of budget data, ensuring accurate reporting is provided to key stakeholders for decision making purposes. Working with your team and vendors, you will ensure the AP/AR process provides a positive client experience.
We rely on both roles to continuously review and implement business improvements that optimize the processes and current technology. If you have experience with Power BI, you will have the opportunity to showcase those skills with new processes/reporting planned for 2022. You will conduct accounting, regulatory and industry research to determine and recommend best practices. SaskCentral also encourages and supports participation in ongoing professional development to maintain current knowledge and understanding of financial accounting and reporting principles (IFRS) as well as tax and regulatory requirements.
You will have a Degree in Business Administration, a professional accounting designation (CPA), and at least 3 years of progressive experience in financial reporting principles, policies and practices. Preference is given to candidates who have gained this knowledge in the financial services sector.
To be successful in the role, you will possess advanced understanding of financial accounting and reporting principles (IFRS) as well as tax and regulatory requirements, comprehensive knowledge of accounting policies and regulatory environments and strong knowledge of accounts payable and accounts receivable processes.
