Job Description

Updated 12-15-20

Vaco Atlanta has just received a brand new Accountant order in Duluth. This role is not being posted by the company we are recruiting for and we are the only firm working on it. We're looking for a solid "jack of all trades" smaller company accountant candidate for a "soup to nuts" type role incorporating AP, AR, GL, Month End closing, Balance Sheet Reconciliations etc. Targeted pay for this role is $55,000 (more or less depending on experience) and the company is very stable; so excellent work life balance is another sell point; one point, however, is that this role requires you to be at the office each weekday (its not a remote role). This is a full-time, direct-hire role with benefits.
