Ministry of Finance Career Profile - Martha

Martha Thomas: 'I’m Martha Thomas. I’m the Director of Financial Management and Reporting for the Ministry of Finance.'

Text on screen: 'What is your educational background?'

Martha Thomas: 'So, I got out of high school and I did my degree at the University of Toronto in history and political science and that wasn’t quite enough. So, I ended up going back to school to Camosun College to do the business admin program, and after being completely inspired by one of my instructors, I decided to become a CA.'

'Did you always know that you wanted to work in the financial stream?'

'No. No, I had no idea what I wanted to do then. After being a store detective and a cashier and a bouncer in a bar, anything was up from there.'

Text on screen: 'What is the greatest misconception about working in the financial stream for the provincial government?'

Martha Thomas: 'Don’t think that it’s strictly about numbers. I’ve been really fortunate – I’ve been in government for 12 years almost now and I’ve traveled across the province. I’ve met some incredible people. It's so much more than just crunching numbers. It’s so much more than just putting spreadsheets together. It has so much to do with developing relationships and supporting the businesses across government.'

Text on screen: 'What is the best part of your job?'

Martha Thomas: 'That there is the 2 aspects. You get to meet some really neat people and you get to help people accomplish some really interesting goals.'
