The staff accountant position offers a great opportunity to learn tax and audit in a firm that nurtures new team members. If you enjoy client interaction and have strong interpersonal, communication, and project management skills, Bregante is the place for you. We value a commitment to professional advancement, and provide an environment that encourages growth and provides opportunity for advancement. Strong candidates must be working toward passing the CPA exam and fulfilling their Form E- attest experience requirements as soon as possible.

We generally prefer individuals at this level to have a minimum of one year of experience in a public accounting firm. Staff accountants are expected to possess strong analytical skills and are encouraged to take an active role in their education and training.

At Bregante, we believe firmly in a multi-discipline approach to staff training – combining accounting, tax, and audit – because we believe that in order to serve our clients in a manner consistent with our service partnership approach, all of our professionals must be knowledgeable in each of these areas.

As a Staff Accountant, you will be expected to learn firm policies and procedures, and become proficient in all aspects of preparing financial statements and income tax returns, including firm standard workpaper preparation, trial balance work, evaluation of general ledger account balances, and recommendation of adjusting journal entries. You will progress to assume responsibility for financial statement compilation, review engagements, and segments of audits under the supervision of more experienced staff members. You will begin to develop a command of GAAP, OCBOA, unique or specialized accounting principles, and financial statement presentation and disclosure, and will obtain a thorough understanding of generally accepted auditing standards and common audit procedures and techniques. You will become proficient in the use of firm standard software such as Lacerte, Excel, CaseWare, BNA, and Web based resources. You will also become proficient in the preparation of corporate, partnership, individual, fiduciary, and other tax returns prepared by the firm, and will be required to complete multiple tasks in a timely manner.

Bregante is truly a different type of CPA firm. We are committed to maintaining a relaxed and enjoyable working atmosphere, and we offer competitive salaries, flexible hours, and full benefits, including a generous “new client bonus” program for employees who provide client leads and referrals.

Excel in your career with a great group of accountants who take a team approach and value their clients as respected business partners and friends. We look forward to hearing from you.
