Financial Coordinator

What is a Financial Coordinator?

We tend to be analytical problem solvers who like structure and keeping things organized. We help to take care of billings, expenses and other financial requests in a timely manner, and enjoy working independently.

“I first studied finance, but then I switched to hospitality and worked there for 5 years before making the move to finance again. I enjoyed working in hospitality but didn’t see myself working there long term; I wanted something more stable and with regular hours.”

This is what I do most days…

I work with numbers and spreadsheets which are very clear and always have clear answers to complex data.

I analyze...

I work closely with account service teams to try to meet their last minute requests.
I coordinate...

I try to find ways to make numbers and spreadsheets easier and more user-friendly for people who don’t use them as often as finance does.
I think...

In their own words:

I love my job because it’s straight forward – black and white. I like to work in an environment where my role is clear with expectations, and I get to complete tasks that make me feel my goal is achieved for the day 🙂

It’s been a winding road to get to this role. I initially took a different major in university, had multiple summer jobs in various fields, and then landed a job that I thought would lead to another role within the agency.

This role kind of chose me! I wasn’t expecting to stay in this department, but a great boss and career advancement led me to stay. It’s a challenging, interesting job, and I love working with others towards a common goal.
