Job Opportunity - Intermediate Accountant Business Services - Matthews Steer
At Matthews Steer we’re looking to grow our team of talented public practice-savvy Intermediate Accountants.
Are you ready to take the next big step in your accounting career?
You’re a business or commerce graduate (accounting major) who’s embarked on your CA or CPA qualifications, and you’re ready to tackle new challenges. You’re experienced in servicing SME clients and high net worth individuals, and you’re a gun at preparing financial statements and tax returns for individuals, partnerships, companies, and trusts. You can recite current Australian accounting standards and taxation legislation in your sleep, and accounting software including MYOB, XERO, QUICKBOOKS and APS comes as second nature. You have excellent verbal and written communication skills, and you’re comfortable engaging with clients and colleagues at all levels. Most of all, you’re looking to join an accounting and advisory firm that offers a structured professional development program, where you dictate the speed and direction that your career progresses.
