Finance Assistant


King’s Christian Collegiate is an independent Christian high school in Oakville, Ontario with a student body of 670 students in grade 9 through 12. Our students come from diverse Christian backgrounds and from around the globe. King’s is a non-profit, charitable organization.

At King’s, we are captivated by the idea that each person can flourish in the fullness of life, where each day they understand more truly themselves, others, and a world that belongs to God. Our vision is to provide the finest secondary education in a Christian environment that encourages self discipline, creative thinking, and strong character development, and that equips students academically, socially, physically and spiritually, employing all talents to the honour of God.

King’s requires a part time Finance Assistant to join their small finance team on a one-year term contract which may potentially be converted to a regular contract. This individual will report to the Director of Finance. The successful candidate will require a vulnerable police check. Salary will be commensurate with years of experience and qualifications. King’s also offers a comprehensive benefits package.
