Village of Cache Creek

Chief Financial Officer

 
The Community:
Surrounded by dry grasslands, working ranches and farms, and dramatic desert scenery, Cache Creek (approx. pop. 1000) is the crossroads to Cariboo Country and the Southern Interior of British Columbia. If asked, residents would speak proudly of the array and quality of municipal services and programs available to them, while paying one of the lowest property tax rates in the province. They’d also comment about how welcoming, safe, and tranquil the community is. Cache Creek boasts a semiarid climate that begs for outdoor activity year-round, including hiking, fishing, golfing, geo-caching, and camping. The local rich and fertile soil, sunshine, and heat combine to produce an abundance of the best fresh fruits and vegetables available. Year-round, a selection of rodeos, festivals, and family-friendly events take place either locally or in our neighbouring communities. Our location allows for a quality lifestyle in a friendly rural community, with access to many amenities located in Kamloops - 45 minutes to the east, and the lower mainland – 3 hours to the south-west.

The Opportunity:
As the Chief Financial Officer you would be responsible for the Village’s financial planning, statutory and compliance reporting and administration of its financial affairs. You would provide financial advice to the CAO, Council and staff on financial and economic matters relating to the long term financial health of the municipality, best practices, risk management, asset management and innovative approaches to long term planning and sustainable and effective service delivery. You would be responsible for all of the statutory duties of the Financial Officer as required under the Local Government Act and the Community Charter.

You would be an integral part of a solution-driven management team and play a key role in strategic planning, budgeting, financial reporting and monitoring, risk management, information technology, human resources and corporate performance management. You would maintain effective working relationships with Mayor and Council, staff, citizens, businesses, regional and neighbouring local governments, First Nations, and other agencies and organizations.

Qualifications:
  • Positive, solution-driven visionary fluent in the financial management role within a municipality. Municipal or

  • The ability to assist in leading a cooperative and participative workplace environment with a cohesive team that
  • promotes and sustains a productive workplace and superior customer service.
