DETAILED JOB DESCRIPTION

THE JOB YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED

You’re an experienced accountant who is looking for a new opportunity. You love a challenge and you’d like to learn new accounting, everything from small businesses to nonprofits to schools. You’d like to work with other top professionals, especially those who know how to do a great job and have fun doing it!

But you don’t want to do income taxes; you don’t enjoy a cutthroat corporate environment, and you’re tired of long hours or a long commute in the city. And you’d like someplace that is flexible and family-friendly. We have both full time and part time positions available.

 

A DIFFERENT KIND OF ACCOUNTING FIRM

Bookkeeping Plus, Inc. (BPI) invites you to consider us as your next career opportunity! We are a 25-person multi-client firm that provides accounting services to a wide variety of clients in Indiana and other states. We continue to grow, and we need to hire full-time and part-time accountants who can do high-end work.

We do almost everything in the field of accounting except income tax returns and CPA-type public accounting. We are not a CPA firm. However, we are one of the largest non-CPA firms in the area. In our corner of the industry, Bookkeeping Plus is unique. We are also woman-owned.

 

GREAT OFFICE ENVIRONMENT

You would work at our very comfortable offices in Greenfield on the east side of Indianapolis. Bookkeeping Plus is a big believer in work/life balance, so we have normal hours of 8–5. If you need some flexibility with your schedule or even want to work some from home, that can be addressed after your training period.

Bookkeeping Plus offers long-term stability, job security, and a proven track record of success, having been founded in 1987. We have an outstanding reputation as a great place to work, and many of our employees have been with us for years. There is no drama and no micromanaging, but your manager is always available when you need them.

 

DUTIES: WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK HERE

From your desk at Bookkeeping Plus, you would be working on profit and nonprofit clients of all sizes and types. You would have your regular clients as well as dynamic assignments that come up, such as the arrival of new clients. You communicate with your clients by email and phone, and you collaborate with your fellow accountants, bookkeepers, A/P specialists, and support staff.

The work is diverse and interesting, and almost every day brings something new to do or learn. Variety is our middle name!

 

Responsibilities include:

  • Financial Analysis

  • Financial Statements and Reports

  • General Ledger

  • Month-End and Year-End

We don’t expect you to know how to do everything. As long as you have some serious real-world experience and knowledge of accounting theory and practice, we can show you the rest. At Bookkeeping Plus, you can go as far as your abilities can take you.
