Senior through Director – Accounting consultant

  • Job #40088

We are partnering with one of Chicago’s fastest growing companies located in the heart of the Loop within walking distance from the blue, red, orange, brown and pink lines. They had a record Q3 and Q4 in 2020 based on how they partnered with their clients during the pandemic and added over 100 national clients last year.

They hire energetic people who enjoy solving problems and working on mission critical projects for their clients. This is best suited for those in public accounting who enjoy the culture of their firm and ready to explore external options but don’t know exactly what role they want next or for those in industry that are bored with mundane work and seek more challenge and higher profile projects – think due diligence for mergers and acquisitions, financial reporting for global entities, month end close for complex transactions and other projects offering resume building blocks for continued career growth.

Also, if you’ve ever found yourself wanting a better work/life balance (or at least get compensated for the extra hours you put in), picking the amount of travel you do or don’t do and not being specialized in any one industry or vertical then this could be a great fit for you.

Must have a strong foundation in public accounting, enjoy working cross functionally and able to effectively communicate with executive leaders.
