Work is a big part of our lives, so it makes sense to choose a company that offers truly rewarding work. At Economical Insurance®, your contributions, creativity, and energy won’t go to waste. Our passionate culture and pioneering mentality infuse everything we do, which is why our one-million-plus policyholders know we’ll protect their homes, businesses, farms, cars, and pets like they’re our own.

We’re not afraid to see how far we can push the envelope to make insurance better. Our family of companies includes Sonnet, the only Canadian home and auto insurer offering a fully online buying experience, and Petline, the largest Canadian pet insurance company. We’re also preparing to become a publicly traded company, a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity for everyone who joins our team.

If you’re looking for a company that takes care of its people – and its customers – and has a track record of doing big things, get ready to love it here.

In this role, you will:

Manage the organization-wide budgeting and forecasting processes, including consolidation of the various operational and head office department budgets into a cohesive and supportable budget / forecast to be approved by executive leaders.

  • Prepare quarterly and annual executive presentations and board level materials to outline budget / forecast highlights for approval
  • Drive continuous enhancements to existing budget / forecast processes and reporting in terms of value-add, maturity and efficiency
  • Partner with operational and head office budget owners in preparation of their bottoms up budgets and forecasts
  • Provide finance support for ad-hoc requests, monthly reporting and smaller scale projects
  • Ongoing budget to actual variance analysis
  • Supervise, develop, mentor and coach the planning team currently consisting of three financial analysts

What do you bring to the role?

  • Recognized accounting designation (CPA, CA, CPA, CMA, CPA, CGA)
  • Minimum 3 years of experience in a people leadership role
  • Advanced Excel and PowerPoint skills
  • Experience with Oracle Hyperion reporting tools is an asset
  • Extensive experience in financial ownership of cross-functional initiatives and experience in strategic planning, project management, executive communication, thought leadership and change management
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and ability to interact with all levels of the organization including Senior Executive team members
  • P&C Insurance knowledge is an asset
  • This role requires successful clearance of a background check (including credit & criminal checks)

We also take potential into consideration. If you don’t have this exact experience, but you know you have what it takes, be sure to give us more insight through your application and cover letter.

Go ahead and expect a lot you deserve it.

We offer:  

  • Competitive salaries, with potential for an annual raise and bonus
  • Pension and savings programs, with company-matched RRSP contributions
  • Generous time away, including vacation and personal needs days
  • Paid volunteer days and company matching on charitable donations
  • Educational resources, tuition assistance, and paid time off to study for exams
