In-House Accountant/ Financial Administrator

Candidates who possess the knowledge and experience to maintain records of financial transactions and assist in managing our day-to-day accounting are strongly preferred. Ideally, the Admin will master the mechanics of our companies’ core accounting over the first 6-12 months of employment, with special emphasis on accurate tracking of income and expenses among the several entities.

Over time, this position would ideally grow to encompass more responsibility, including the opportunity to assist with the financial management of our equine veterinary practice group. In other words, this position can be more than just a book-keeper gig. Our ideal candidate will start by learning the mechanics of our record-keeping under the guidance of the Practice Manager and Hospital Director.
