The Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) is searching for a full time Chief Financial Officer. If you have a professional accounting designation and an interest in local government, you may be the perfect fit for our team.
Headquartered in Bella Coola, the CCRD serves a population of approximately 3300 citizens in a district which stretches from Bella Bella, through Ocean Falls, across to Rivers Inlet and east to the Bella Coola valley.
Situated in “the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest” the Bella Coola valley offers beautiful forests, parks, mountains and ocean and provides residents and visitors with an amazing opportunity for hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing and heli-skiing. Life is quaint in our remote wilderness setting and residents are supported with grocery stores, a credit union, schools, hospital, ambulance service, transit and other amenities. Accessible by Highway 20 via Williams Lake, ferry, and a 1 ½ hour daily plane ride between Vancouver and Bella Coola, the area is enjoyed year round by visitors and citizens alike.
The CFO’s duties include planning, coordinating, administering, implementing and accounting for all financial aspects of the work of the CCRD.
