What will you do in this job?

The FlyOver Attractions Jr. Financial Analyst is a full-time, year-round role reporting to the Senior Financial Analyst at Pursuit. The key mandate of the Jr. Financial Analyst is to provide fact-based, analytical decision support and insight to FlyOver Attractions leadership teams around the world.

 

FlyOver Canada opened its doors in 2013 and has become one of the premier attractions in Vancouver, welcoming over 3 million guests to experience the Ultimate Flying Ride.  Since then, FlyOver Attractions opened FlyOver Iceland in Reykjavik in 2019 and FlyOver the Real Wild West in Las Vegas, NV in 2021.  The Company is starting construction on a fourth location in Toronto, ON and is seeking opportunities to expand to other iconic cities across the globe.  The FlyOver experience starts with a multi-media pre-show before taking guests on a virtual flight over stunning landscapes, showcasing the natural beauty of each location.   The ride uses state of art technology to suspend guests in front of a 19m (62 foot) diameter spherical screen and employs wind, mist, and scents to enhance the experience.

 

The Jr. Financial Analyst will play a critical role in supporting FlyOver’s team by providing insightful and actionable decision support on Revenue trends, forward financial projections (including labor and expense management) and new business opportunities.  The Analyst will also support new and existing capital projects across the FlyOver platform.

  • Partner with operations to update labor and staffing models with the goal of increasing labor efficiency
  • Establish strong partnerships with FlyOver operators, construction teams, and leaders to improve financial acumen and execute against targets
  • Assist in the development of financial models to determine the financial viability and return on investment of prospective FlyOver locations
  • Participate in the Company’s annual budgeting process, working with the business and the broader Finance organization to develop thorough annual budgets
  • Suggest process improvements that will inform leadership and ensure a forward-thinking approach to reporting and business partnership
