Junior Accounting Associate (Boutique CPA firm)

Junior Accounting Associate – ready to fly!

We are a growing, dynamic, boutique style business committed to providing unparalleled financial solutions to our clients.

  • Are you ready to contribute to a team with your passion, skill and drive?
  • Do you want to be in an environment where you are challenged to become your best, where the scope of your work program is limited only by your desire to attempt it?
  • Where our team will support you in your endeavours while you drive them? Are you interested in the prospect of participating in the ownership of a business like this?

If this sounds like you, we should talk.

Our firm is committed to serving owner managers through every level of their financial need. We are their Financial Quarterbacks, guiding them through our proprietary process to clarify their objectives, then taking a leadership role in the execution of those actions to accomplish their goals. Our process demands excellent tax planning, a meticulous understanding of our clients’ and their families with solutions customized to each family that go way beyond the basics. Financial statements and tax returns (the “basics”) are an important result of this process, but certainly not an end in themselves.

It should not surprise you that we don’t do any assurance work; our pre-occupation being with the future rather than the past. And you can say goodbye to the horrendous “tax season” because our personal tax work is limited to the owner managers we serve and we rarely need to work on weekends.

At the MK&A team you will:

Initially:

  • familiarize yourself with our methodology and performance standards and contribute to the accomplishment of those standards;
  • demonstrate your bookkeeping capability;
  • learn and apply our file documentation standards to your assignments;
  • learn to complete tax plans, notice to reader financial statements, corporate tax returns and personal tax returns; and
  • work diligently to meet client deadlines.

 

After approximately 6-9 months:

  • research issues, develop options and make recommendations;
  • interact with clients and team members to produce optimal results;
  • on behalf of clients’, deal with the CRA as well as other advisors as required; and
  • immerse yourself in our philosophy of “Forward Thinking Finance” and learn to focus on providing comprehensive, integrated planning services.

 

Requirements:

  • undergraduate degree in accounting, commerce or math;
  • enrolled in CGA or CPA program;
  • excellent bookkeeping skills a must;
  • a team-player with excellent verbal and written communication skills;
  • familiarity with Caseware, Profile tax software, QuickBooks, and other accounting software a definite plus;
  • strong familiarity with MSOffice ;
  • CFP designation a definite plus;
  • ability to multitask in a fast-paced and changing environment;
  • detail oriented but with the ability to see the big picture and work towards its attainment.  

Why work at MK&A:

  • to contribute within an eco-system that encourages and challenges you to become the best you can be;
  • why miss a day on building your most valuable resource; you?
  • to earn above-market, performance based, compensation increases and bonuses which reward you for your contribution;
  • to be part of an active succession plan leading to equity participation if you have the right stuff!
  • to learn priceless skills and strategies directly from those that constantly innovate them;
  • to experience the exhilaration of making a difference beyond what you ever felt was possible and hear your client recognize you with a heartfelt, “thank you for your brilliant work!”; and
  • to have fun along the way!  

If you’re ready to take the next step in your future and discover who you really are, apply to be a candidate for this position

We leave you with some parting words from Winston Churchill, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
