About Indianapolis Accounting Jobs
Accounting Principals is a job placement service specializing in placing accounting professionals at all levels with companies that will appreciate their expertise. Some of their recent offerings include the positions at various levels. First, an Accounting Clerk can earn from $35,000 to $42,000 per year working for one of their clients in the southwestern part of the city. The position requires a high school diploma and one year’s experience in accounting, with a working knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics Navision. Responsibilities include assisting with accounts payable and accounts receivable. This is a full-time position, temp to permanent.
Another possibility is that of a Tax Preparer, working for a client on the northside of Indianapolis, and earning from $23,000 to $25,000 a year. This position involves helping the company to keep up to date with all tax filing requirements. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in Accounting, and tax preparation experience. The employer has indicated that they are open to a work at home scenario once training has been completed. Yet another possibility, a bit further up the pay scale, is the position of Senior Account for a client company in downtown Indianapolis. As a senior accountant you will be assisting the controller and CFO with budgeting, trend analysis, and forecasting, as well as Excel modeling. The pay scale varies between $70k and $75k.
Eli Lilly is a Fortune 500 company based in Indianapolis, with worldwide employment of over 39,000. It is one of the country’s largest suppliers of pharmaceuticals. Lilly has an opening for a Senior Analyst in Accounting and Finance Reporting. This individual oversees global sales figures and reviews reports on global revenue. As befits such an important position, a degree in accounting is required, along with at least three years experience in public accounting, or the equivalent experience at a multinational corporation. The applicant must also be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or a Chartered Accountant. Salary is not mentioned in the offering but would logically be appropriate for such a position at such a prestigious company.
If you are a qualified accountant, with a bachelor’s degree and a bit of experience, you may want to consider seeking employment with an accounting service providing assistance to individuals and small businesses. Storen Financial Group is one such company. Storen is located in Zionsville IN just northwest of Indianapolis. You could snag employment as a Small Business and Individual Tax Preparer. The position requires a college degree and working knowledge of MS Outlook and Excel, as well as payroll and tax accounting.
Storen is not simply a local company, but has offices all over the country, handling tax issues for clients in 43 states. Remuneration for this position is between $50k and $90k, depending on qualifications. At the lower end of the spectrum, and just barely qualifying as an accounting position, you could seek employment as a seasonal tax preparer at Jackson Hewitt. Qualifications are minimal, simply a high school diploma or GED, basic math skill, MS Office, and some other basic computer skills. Pay is commensurate with these qualifications, at $11 per hour. You must also have a PTIN (Preparers Tax Identification Number).
