We are a Halifax based mid-size Chartered Professional Accounting firm seeking a CPA student to join our practice. Our firm is well-established and has been servicing the needs of clients in the region for over 45 years. Our client base draws on all industries in both the private and not for profit sectors. In addition to the five partners, we currently employ ten chartered professional accountants along with multiple CPA students and other accounting and administrative staff.
CPA students working with our firm have had tremendous success in passing the CFE and obtaining their Charted Professional Accountant designation, which we feel is a testament to the well-rounded experience they receive working in public practice at a mid-sized firm. We are very proud of our track record and look forward to continuing to develop future CPAs.
We require a business graduate (or a student due to graduate in the next year) with a major in accounting who is interested in pursuing their CPA designation. As the ideal candidate, you will contribute to our team of professionals by possessing effective communication skills (both oral and written), capable of working with minimal supervision, applying accounting theory and concepts to practical situations and handling varying tasks at one time. Experience with Microsoft Excel, Word, and any accounting software packages would be considered an asset.
This position will involve the performance of a variety of duties for our clients. Primary duties will include preparation of working paper files for audit, review and compilation engagements, as well as the completion of corporate and personal income tax returns. As a CPA student with our firm, the successful candidate will also be enrolled as a student of the CPA Atlantic School of Business and as such would be responsible for completion of the related courses required under the CPA program.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits package and future growth opportunities. We pride ourselves on our comfortable work environment, personable staff and flexible working hours.
Please forward your resume and covering letter to the attention of Tracey Wright, CPA, CA by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to (902) 443-4846. We appreciate the interest of all applicants, however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
