We’re Hiring: Financial Controller (Contract)

By MT+Co. - January 28, 2017 under MT+Co.

As of February 28, 2017, this position has been filled. We thank all applicants for their interest and their time.

MT+Co. has an opening!  We are seeking a Financial Controller to cover a parental leave position from March 2017 to January 2018.

We are a group of forward-thinking lawyers and professionals who have built a progressive business law firm based on a more passionate and personal way of practising law.  But what makes us really different? We challenge the legal status quo by constantly questioning traditional practices and pushing ourselves to do better. Our innovative practices include different ways of billing clients, working with clients, using technology to provide better service, and creating non-traditional roles and responsibilities for legal and non-legal staff.

We promise our clients value instead of billable hours.  And we go even further – we guarantee it by letting our clients pay their bills based on what they perceive the value of our services to be.

We believe clients should like their lawyer, and we believe that everyone in the firm should like each other.  This means we seek out exceptional and affable individuals.  We don’t hire assholes.

We seek clients we believe in and we are passionate about the type of work we do.  Life is too short to spend time working with people who don’t share our values, or doing things we don’t enjoy.

OVERVIEW

We are a progressive, high-growth firm that strives to achieve balance between rigorous financial accountability and a kick-ass culture.  The Controller will be expected to help the firm maintain that balance by providing exceptional financial advice and oversight in a way that supports our existing culture of performance and fun.  The Controller will:

  • ensure the effectiveness of the firm’s accounting and tax functions including: accounts payable, accounts receivable (billing and collections), payroll, general accounting, and trust accounting;
  • supervise the day to day activities and efficiency of the finance team, and make recommendations to the management team regarding continuous improvement; and
  • prepare the annual budget and be responsible for on-going budget management.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

The Controller will have a Canadian accounting designation and two+ years of experience in an accounting role. We look for curiosity and innovation. We welcome those who don’t fit the traditional law firm mold. Diverse personalities help keep our lives exciting and entertaining. Once you meet us and see our offices in Gastown, Vancouver, you’ll understand.
