We are seeking someone who craves an environment where learning isn't just from a text book. By working with highly skilled Managers and Shareholders, you will have exposure to a variety of industries and be able to tap into the knowledge of your experienced coworkers to produce the best quality work product possible.

Where do you want to go?

Let's Get There.

As an Audit Senior, you will either prepare or supervise field audit engagements depending on the type and size of the engagement and your level of experience as a Senior. You will be expected to assist in designing the audit approach and planning all aspects of the job including the scope of the project and the technical aspects of the work.

As your career progresses you will begin to supervise Staff Accountants, prepare a detailed budget for each person involved in the engagement, and assist with coordinating meetings with the client and other members of the client service team.

From day one you will be responsible for inspecting clients' financial records, compiling and analyzing data, preparing detailed accounting reports and proposing solutions to technical accounting research issues.

What you WON'T do: Spend more time in hotel rooms than you do at home. Most of our clients are local so while there will be some out-of-area travel, you can still achieve balance.

Does this sound like the perfect opportunity for you? If so, please submit your resume so we can get the conversation started!*
