About This Role

The Division Controller for Commercial Services is a new role that oversees the accounting and financial operations for Woocheen’s Commercial subsidiaries. You will be working in partnership with the Commercial Services CEO and Woocheen’s Accounting & Finance team to grow and scale the division, integrate subsidiary back-office operations, and develop KPIs that support efficient, effective management of the businesses.

You are entrepreneurial and intensely curious about many different industries, which helps you to design and implement scalable process improvements within a complex organization. You are highly collaborative and enjoy teaching, coaching, and training others using data, technology, and automation. You value integrity and enjoy educating, coaching, and mentoring your business partners. You are a self-starter, able to set goals and objectives with little direction in a fast-paced and changing environment. You communicate clearly and concisely to financial and non-financial colleagues, both orally and in writing. Questioning the status quo by offering thought-provoking and creative solutions is natural for you.

This role will be what you make it – systems and processes need to be re-examined and re-invented – together with Woocheen’s Accounting & Finance team, we can work together to ready the organization for future growth!
