If you are an Accounting and Finance Professional and have five to seven years of experience either in a Public Accounting Firm auditing banks or have been in the Controller organization, Financial Reporting, or Accounting Policy organization in a publicly traded financial services setting this could be an excellent opportunity for you. Our client is a multibillion dollar plus financial services organization this is a mission driven organization that is very high touch. They have added several key team members from competitor regional banks onto their team and this Lead Accountant role will be no different. You will report to the Director of Financial Reporting and will need to be a humble team player, that embraces efficiency, enjoys a learning environment, likes to take ‘ownership’ of your space, have a passion for GAAP accounting, and, in general, enjoys rolling up your sleeves and getting into the 10K’s, 10Q’s and documenting all of the technical aspects of the processes you are building.
