Do you consider yourself results driven, detail oriented and a natural leader? If so, this new opportunity as an Accounting Consultant might be right for you. Our client is based in Westmont, IL and is looking for an experienced accounting professional to assist with running the accounting side of the business.

  • Ensure configuration of the general ledger, cash management, accounts payable and accounts receivable

  • Offer ongoing assistance to customers, including attending to their concerns and assist with financial reporting 
  • Work closely with the sales unit to work out better ways of improving the firm’s chances of closing bargains 
  • Take active part in cross-unit and cross product execution teams 
  • Carry out and forward necessary metrics and project reports, including list of issues, project updates and status promptly to management

Accounting Consultant Requirements:
  • Bachelor's degree in accounting or finance preferred
  • 5+ years of accounting experience
  • Strong financial analysis skills
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
