Posted: 09/19/2021

Description

The health and well-being of our team, clients, and community is our top priority. We’re closely monitoring COVID-19 developments and following guidance from health authorities and government officials. Perkins & Co’s physical offices are open, but most employees are working remotely; most interviews will be held virtually for the foreseeable future.

The long-term work location for this role is flexible; we are open to a fully remote arrangement for candidates who are located in and authorized to work in the U.S. We are not sponsoring visas or hiring internationally at this time.

Client Accounting Manager - Brewery

Some may think a job is just a job, but at Perkins & Co we believe in igniting possibilities by helping our employees develop careers that fulfill their ambitions. We hire great people and give them a great place to work. Our secret to keeping them around is a positive culture, challenging and interesting work, and a dedication to continually increasing our competencies.

We’re adding a Client Accounting Services (CAS) Manager to support our growing beverage practice group, which includes craft brewers, ciders and distillers from all over the country! This person will leverage their leadership experience and damn good accounting skills to provide strategic oversight and hands-on management of a small group of brewery and other clients; supervise and mentor a team of bookkeepers; and assist in developing new business and fostering client relationships.

Have you been longing for a chance to have real, positive impact on businesses? Do you have a knack for process improvement? Are you a strong leader and relationship builder? If so, this could be the perfect opportunity!

What’s in it for you?

  • Great colleagues—work with smart, creative professionals who delight in rolling up sleeves and digging in to help client organizations achieve their full potential
  • Growth—opportunity for expanding your skills and knowledge within the position and there’s room for advancement
  • Participation in networking and learning opportunities such as the Brewers Association, AICPA, OSCPA, and other professional organizations
  • Variety—the job includes diverse responsibilities and clients bring varying needs
  • Paperless, cloud-based environment; we’re committed to smart use of technology
  • Competitive salary and benefits
  • We have fun here!

Primary Responsibilities

This role will be varied and have a broad scope of responsibility, but if we were to narrow it down to four major categories, they would be:

  1. Manage several Staff and Senior Bookkeepers, assuming full responsibility for their training, work assignments, scheduling and performance
  2. Manage ongoing client engagements and individual project-based work in which we serve as a contract Controller or CFO
  3. Deliver timely and accurate financial reports in a large ERP software (Orchestrated Beer)
  4. Onboard new clients, develop relationships, document high-level monthly procedures, and eventually turn those clients over to subordinate bookkeepers

Our ideal candidate is a team leader who is a CPA, has worked at a public accounting firm within the last 10 years and/or supervised a client accounting team, and has brewery/beverage finance experience. Excitement about the craft beverage industry is a must. Bonus points for being familiar with Orchestrated Beer, but it's not necessary as long as there's some experience with a large ERP.

Does this sound like the right opportunity for you?

Please apply today for consideration!
