Taking the company to the next level will require a reliable team player who can develop and implement systems for collecting, analyzing, and reporting financial information while keeping the company’s financial best interest in mind – is that you?

Below, you’ll find a list of attributes (in no particular order) that we’re looking for in our quest to find the one to manage and drive the necessary changes to our ERP system as Temple continues to grow and evolve.

If you’re excited about the opportunity described below, please send us your resumé post-haste.

Temple Lifestyle Brands develops, markets and sells products in the All-Natural and Organic Consumer Packaged Goods Industry. We offer better brands, responsibly made with honest ingredients to inspire people to feel good about the choices they make and how they affect their bodies and the planet.


We redefine what it means to live well.

‘Better’ is our guiding light – a concept on the horizon that leads us along the path to the right products and practices. We know that perfection is a pipedream, and that reality gets in the way of ideals. Instead, we know that ‘better’ is the way to ‘best’. With every product we make, with the business decisions we take, and with the way our practices impact the planet, we reach to be better and do better. Progress is a slow play, but we’re on the road to better in all that we do.


We play to win. Our passion, accountability and drive deliver progress. We keep it simple, stay decisive and focus on process for exceptional execution. We get the job done. We stay curious. We’re always adapting, never afraid to take calculated risks and tackle challenges creatively. We are empowered and engaged; we challenge the status quo. Fail fast and learn faster – that’s how we operate.


You’re not a function. You’re not a number. You’re you – a human being, working with human beings for the benefit of other human beings. Our humanity is what makes us special, and we bring that to work every day. As a team, we live well, laugh often and have fun – just because work is serious, that doesn’t mean we have to be. We check our egos at the door, communicate with positive intention, and aim to inspire and energize our peers and build connections. Wellness is our mission – and it starts within.

Colleagues and team members would describe you as a hard-working team player with great critical thinking and time-management skills and they would not hesitate to recommend you.
