Controller and Accounting Candidates

Companies often engage Recruiters to fill Controller or other Corporate Accounting functions due to a lack of qualified internal candidates as well as the difficulty attracting outside applicants who possess the range of skills and requisite experience they desire, such as:

  • Proven ability to close month-end under pressure.
  • Proficiency with mid-grade and major ERP General Ledger systems such as Microsoft Dynamics (AX, Great Plains, Solomon), SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, WorkDay, AS400, etc.
  • Full-cycle accounting experience with a strong understanding of debits and credits across the financial statements
  • Career foundation experience in public accounting (audit or tax)
  • Knowledge of GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles)
  • Significant experience working with complete sets of financial statements (P&L, Balance Sheet, and Statement of Cashflows)
  • Strong Financial Reporting experience (internal reporting for management purposes)
  • Experience working with department leaders/budget owners
  • For Controller and other corporate accounting management positions, experience leading a team of accountants

The Difference Maker

Of course, we know how to identify and recruit people that meet these technical requirements, but we find the subtle differences between a candidate in these areas make the biggest difference:

Ability to see the big picture of the business and understand accounting’s place within it

Exceptional organization skills and ability to prioritize and handle multiple projects simultaneously

Ability to work at a fast pace and keep up with industry segment-specific spikes

The soft people skills necessary to forge and cultivate positive business relationships across departments and at all staff levels
