You’re a savvy accountant with a team-oriented mindset who enjoys keeping financial processes running smoothly so an organization can focus on its goals – in our case, helping students!
Your mission: We’ll count on you to not only reconcile and balance accounts and resolve discrepancies, but handle a broad range of accounting projects as well.
Your work: You’ll be working with personnel in other departments within the College and the System to review and follow up on issues involving invoices, and ensure that expenditures fall within purchasing guidelines. When AP system software upgrades are implemented, you’ll participate in the process, and you will interact with internal and external auditors as well as funding agencies. You’ll also be involved in year-end closings, and the 1099 process.
Next steps: If you always have the student experience in the forefront of your planning and execution, if you’re a collaborator, an innovator and a person who gets things done, apply today!
