Do you thrive on change and love the details that go along with being a bookkeeper?

Looking for a great place to grow with the organization while advancing your skillset?

If so, then we want to hear from you.

Who We Are:

We provide cloud bookkeeping services to a diverse range of clients across British Columbia and Alberta. Our goal is to provide businesses with the services and professional guidance needed to be in control of their finances so they can focus on what matters most - managing their business operations effectively and efficiently. We work to remove stress, confusion and uncertainty and replace it with clarity, freedom and control.

Based in the Cowichan Valley, we are a growing process and technology-driven firm and have created a team that has become a second family for all of us.

Host Bookkeeping Systems Inc. is in an exciting phase of business growth and is on the search for a highly organized, detail-orientated Administrative Assistant to join our team - will that be YOU!?!?!

Desired Skills and Experience

We aren’t just looking for anyone to join us ~ we want our next team member to be someone pretty amazing. Our goals are grand and we have a clear path for achieving them. We’re looking for a confident go getter who is equally passionate in helping take our company to the next level while growing with the business and working towards their own personal goals.

We want people to join us who share our passion and are excited about being a part of an exciting phase. Our vision is to empower business owners around their finances and to continually learn and grow through our inspiration and nurturing mentality.

This new exciting role will offer admin assistance to the Founder (marketing, tracking workflow KPI’s, tracking client deadlines, managing team meetings, assisting with building out a knowledge base) while assisting the Intermediate Bookkeepers as needed (processing documents, scanning (minimal as we are cloud based after all!), updating client manuals etc.). This dynamic role is best suited for an individual that thrives on change and is always looking for ways to improve efficiencies.

The ideal candidate for this role will have the following qualities:

  • Demonstrated pattern of personal and professional development
  • High attention to detail
  • Strong critical thinking skills and complex problem solving ability
  • Articulate and concise verbal and written communication skills
  • Adaptable to working in both a team environment and independently
  • Social Media skills and experience working with Canva considered an asset
  • A thirst for knowledge

As this is a remote working environment, you are required to have a strong internet connection and a dedicated office space in your home. Although remote, we are looking to hire locally in the Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, BC.

Our Environment and Culture

We understand how many hours in the day you spend working and so we want to make that time as enjoyable as possible. That is why work/life balance is an important core value of Host Bookkeeping Systems Inc. and we support our team in making this happen.

But it is our attitude and culture that makes us the place to be ~ we want someone who likes to have fun and won’t be surprised if we take our work meetings outside on occasion. We are in the heart of the Cowichan Valley after all!
