  • Liaise with the external and internal auditors on financial accounting and reporting policy issues, as needed.
  • Contribute to a collaborative, team-first environment and bring your unique perspective and curiosity to set ambitious goals and drive process improvement initiatives to challenge the status quo.

  • 3+ years of relevant work experience in an accounting or policy related position with strong technical background in IFRS.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to communicate effectively to executives.

  • Curiosity and drive to learn new ways to do things, willingness to challenge the status quo, and ability to drive process improvements and efficiencies.
  • Strong interpersonal skills; specifically, able to act as change agent, facilitator and collaborator.


  • Previous banking experience is desirable.
