Financial Auditor II
Here at TJX Canada, we strive our hardest to make sure that, every day, our customers are able to find the latest and greatest designer brand names for less than they'd pay elsewhere. When they walk through the doors of our stores, whether it's a Winners, HomeSense, or Marshalls, savvy shoppers know they'll experience the "Thrill of the Find," which, if you're curious, feels like a slight breeze blowing over the surface of your skin-not a bad feeling, if we do say so ourselves.
But you're not here to feel the breeze. You're here to see if working with TJX Canada is right for you. To help with your decision, we'd like to introduce you to someone who once faced the same choice you have to make.
Riley is one of our Financial Auditors II. She works with the Manager of Audit and Financial Audit Manager to plan and perform operational and financial audits. She analyzes all aspects of operations and presents findings on the results of the audits to Management. She reviews statutory, quarterly, and year-end financial statements. She also evaluates compliance to Sarbanes-Oxley, laws, and regulations.
Of course, Riley loves numbers. She says numbers are the universal language. She also has an extraordinary talent for mental arithmetic. Who else do you know that can identify all of the prime numbers within a five-digit number? Nobody comes close to Riley's mad math skills. Nobody.
This is Riley. She is one of us.
If you do decide to apply for this position, and we agree that this is the right job for you, you'll be supported by a plethora of internal programs whose only focus is the continued progress of your career. At TJX Canada, we do everything we can to help you achieve your full potential. But we can't do it all ourselves. You'll need to bring the ambition, the motivation, and the drive.
So what do you think? Like Riley, are you one of us?
Now, if you were to come on board as one of our Financial Auditors II, we'd ask you to do the following:

- Prepare specific audit programs for use by the audit team and estimate time requirements.
- Review and evaluate all completed work, findings, and recommendations for accuracy, adequacy, and presence of sufficient supporting documentation.

- Review audits to ensure quality of content, validity, and accuracy.
- Inform the Audit Manager of audit progress on a regular basis.
- Consult with the Audit Manager on problem areas and recommend appropriate actions.
- Perform year-end physical inventories in all divisions.
- Perform special projects as assigned.
Sounds rather challenging and exciting, right? Let's hope so, because if it sounds easy or boring, there's a good chance this job isn't for you. But if it does sound right for you, here's why we know you'll be able to handle those challenges:
- You must have at least three years of experience in public accounting or equivalent with a bachelor's degree, preferably in accounting or business; CPA or CIA preferred.
- You have strong verbal and written communication skills.
- You are highly knowledgeable in accounting and auditing principles.
- You are proficient with Excel and Word.
- Your knowledge of ACL would be an asset.
We know some of that might sound a little daunting, but if we're going to meet and exceed our promises to our customers, we have to be committed to hiring the best person for the job.
