Cover & Rossiter is looking for seasonal tax accountants to work with us during tax season. This is the perfect role for parents who want to work only when their kids are in school, which happens to coincide with the busy tax season months of January through April and September through October. Seasonal tax accountants work under the supervision of a director, principal or manager. This is an employee position; not a contract position.

WHY JOIN THE COVER & ROSSITER TEAM?

Cover & Rossiter is a great place to work with many unique benefits! We work in a beautiful, state-of-the-art office space at Little Falls Centre One. The configuration of the office space and innovative workstations, which include sit-to-stand desks, are intended to facilitate collaboration and improve productivity.

In an industry that is legendary for long hours and burnout, Cover & Rossiter is committed to our employees’ well-being, both in the office and in their personal life. We make a conscious effort to establish plans and policies designed to allow for flexibility and balance between work and home life demands. We began offering telecommuting options nearly 20 years ago – well before most CPA firms would consider such a benefit.

CORE COMPETENCIES

Successful team members are self-starters, who effectively and efficiently manage their work load in order to complete assigned tasks/engagements on a timely basis and within project scope and budget.  They develop a depth of knowledge in tools, systems and processes and their practical application. They demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the firm’s systems and processes and are able to apply them with support and direction. They are able to document findings and express ideas clearly and concisely. They contribute to the team by handling challenges in a positive, professional manner, and effectively managing the demands of tax and audit deadlines.

DESIRED SKILLS and EXPERTISE

In addition to the core competencies, the candidate will ideally have:

  • B.A. or B.S. degree in Accounting
  • CPA or relevant tax experience with a public accounting firm
  • Knowledge of accounting principles
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Basic math skills and the ability to analyze figures
  • Ability to multi-task, establish priorities and organize efficiently
