The Accounting Associate is primarily responsible for assisting the agency’s Director of Finance/CFO in processing and maintaining data on agency financial transactions, including accounts payable, cash receipts, and manufacturing data and sales. This position is moderately supervised, and the Accounting Associate will often work in conjunction with the Director of Finance/CFO in completing various tasks. Strong written, oral communication, and interpersonal skills are required of the Accounting Associate, as are organization, the ability to prioritize tasks, and the capacity to solve problems both independently and in collaboration with other staff. Successful performance in this position also relies on the ability to make sound judgments using critical thinking skills and to meet its physical demands, which may include prolonged periods of sitting (while entering data into computer journals), speaking (with vendors via telephone), writing (in order to code accounts payable), and reading (invoices and purchase orders, in order to reconcile accounts). Most work is conducted within a conventional office setting, though some work may be carried out in the agency’s industrial manufacturing environment and warehouse/packing facility (subject to temperature variations).
- Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, with 5 or more years’ experience in the Accounts Payable/Accounting
- Fluency in Microsoft Office applications, including Word and Excel; Sage100 (MAS90) experience preferred
