Before you lose your personal life in the next tax season, ponder this...

Are you tired of the crazy hours of the typical tax season? 

Do you love your career in public accounting BUT ALSO want a chance to have a personal life? 

Do you enjoy building relationships and want to have a profound effect on your clients from day one?

If so, then this is the firm for you!

Our client, a public tax and accounting advisory firm in NYC, is hiring a Senior Associate to join their growing team. Not your typical public accounting firm, this company treats their employees (and their time) with respect. They invest a lot in you as a Senior Associate, so they work hard to maintain a culture where you're heard and nurtured, and also challenged to grow.

As a Senior Associate you will engage in tax, accounting, audit and advisory services focusing on small and mid-sized businesses. You will spend about 70% of your time around the tax world, both corporate and personal (planning, projecting and prep) and about 30% in accounting / audit advisory. The firm does the books for many of their clients and are true advisors and partners to the businesses they serve.


  • At least 5 years relevant (and recent) tax and accounting experience in a small to mid-sized public accounting firm as a generalist
  • Proficiency in ProSystem Tax and/or Engagement  (QuickBooks or Xero is also strongly preferred)
  • A great willingness and desire to be a problem-solver, trusted advisor and consummate team player
  • An ability to communicate effectively - by phone and in person - with clients

If you're tired of the crazy hours of the typical tax season, and are ready to join a firm who will treat you like a person not a machine, apply now!
