Reports to: Executive Director and Artistic Director
The Director of Finance is responsible for developing and executing financial controls, policies, and procedures, as well as overseeing the daily financial operations, book-keeping, and administration for Fringe Theatre’s year-round operations. The Director of Finance builds annual budgets with the support of various department leads; strategizes growth opportunities in collaboration with the leadership team; and manages the financial health of the organization.

Is it you we’re looking for?
You are a highly organized, detail-oriented, and process driven dynamo who brings experience and passion to this vital role. You are a strategic thinker who understands the financial administration and statutory requirements of a busy charitable arts organization. You are deadline driven and value timely correspondence and proactive decision making. You have sharp bookkeeping skills and are committed to maintaining efficient processes. Though numbers are your passion, you love people just as much. You communicate clearly and confidently as you collaborate with your colleagues. You enjoy being part of a big, creative team and want to support the arts community with an open and positive energy. A passion for Fringe, live theatre, and the local arts scene helps, too!
The Director of Finance is responsible for the overall financial health of the organization, including:
Budgeting & Financial Controls:
Payroll and Human Resources:
This is a full-time, permanent position that generally follows a Monday-Friday schedule. However, it is reasonably expected that the Director of Finance be available and on-call for the lead up, execution, and reconciliation of the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival every summer.
At Fringe Theatre, we foster artists. We nurture audiences. We take chances. Fringe Theatre cultivates safer spaces for brave ideas and big artistic risk.
Since its very beginning, Fringe Theatre has been the meeting place where experience, perspective, diversity, and passion are explored, uplifted, and celebrated. Representation onstage, backstage, in the Front of House and Box Office, in our administrative spaces, and in our mentorship and training programs matters. The future of theatre in Treaty 6 is equitable, diverse, inclusive, and accessible. We believe representation within our organization will lead to greater equity, diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility in our community.
We are a collaborative, playful, creative, flexible, hard-working team where big ideas and out-of-the-box approaches are encouraged. We know you have a big, beautiful, busy life outside of Fringe and we will do everything in our power to honour your humanness beyond the amazing work you do with us.
Our base of operations is the Fringe Theatre Arts Barns in Edmonton, AB (10330 84 Avenue). Our hours of business are typically 9am – 5pm Monday – Friday, though as a busy cultural space supporting more than 500 events year-round and as the producers of the largest, longest running Fringe Theatre Festival in North America, there is an expectation that staff are reasonably available evenings and weekends based on season and Festival event activity.
