WHAT WE WANT FROM EMPLOYEES

PERSONALITY

We want employees that are not one dimensional. Like to stay fit? Good! Volunteer? Great! Spend time with your family? Excellent! Easy to get along with? Perfect! You'll fit right in, clients will love you, you'll be more successful, and the firm will be more successful.

ETHICS

This is an industry where you must have a high level personal ethics. Without it we all suffer. We want people who can apply sound judgement and reasoning, even in difficult decisions, making the choices that are the correct ones, even if it isn't the most profitable one.

RESPECT

Although our firm is in a small town, it is very diverse. Our community, and thus our clients, come from around the world, speak many different languages, and have had varied life experiences. We want staff that fit this mould, but also respect those in our community of different cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds to our own.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

STUDENTS

We are an accredited training office with the Atlantic School of Chartered Professional Accountants. We want students that are not only looking to bring something to our team, but also to our community.  As a small firm, we are able to provide you with a wide range of experiences that you would not be able to receive at larger firms, allowing you to not only see the big picture, but also see and meet our clients.

It is our belief that the unique responsibility that we put on our student's shoulders is why we have had a 100% success rate with accounting students making it through and passing their certification exams.

EXPERIENCED

Are you an experienced accountant looking for a change? Or are you someone with skills in accounting, tax, bookkeeping, or business advisory and you think you can add something to our firm? We are always on the lookout for smart, hardworking people that will fit our team and can respond to a complex and diverse client base with challenging work covering anything from accounting and assurance to tax planning and business advisory.

If our firm sounds like something you are looking for, we'd like to talk.
