Assurance Services Senior Associate (experienced)


The future is you…

We’re looking for great folks to be the next leaders of our firm. Start as Sr. Associate but envision yourself as a supervisor, manager and even a partner one day if that’s your goal.

WBL is different than other firms. We’re looking to grow organically which means BIG opportunity for you! Join a firm that’s not looking to obtain its future leaders by merging with another firm.

Even if your end game isn’t to become a partner, you will enjoy the variety and challenge of public accounting. There’s no need to leave the industry because at WBL, there’ll always be a place for you.

Does this sound like you?

  • You like to get to know your clients and their businesses and bring them fresh ideas. Your mission is to give them the best service possible.
  • You are a detail-oriented person who does what you say you’ll do.
  • You’re a keen problem-solver and an inquiring mind. You’re a lifelong learner and learn quickly.
  • You like variety and don’t plan on getting pigeon-holed. You have experience with more than one of the following industries and like it that way: manufacturing, distribution, software, technology, staffing, non-profit private schools/associations/foundations or professional services.
  • You have a Bachelor degree in Accounting and at least two years of public accounting audit experience with a mid-size regional or local firm.

As a Sr. Audit Associate, you will be an integral part of the team and perform the following job duties under limited supervision:

  • Perform audit procedures to support our accountants’ report on client financial statements.
  • Test internal control structures and determine the reasonableness of recorded assets, liabilities and results of operations.
  • Identify and communicate significant problems in our clients’ operations.
  • Prepare sections of reports, management letters and other communications.
  • Apply the theory and principles of accounting as well as the objectives, standards & procedures of auditing to client situations.
  • Develop insight into clients’ systems, procedures, overall business operations and industries and utilize this knowledge in audit work.
  • Meet the standards of technical quality as established in current AICPA and FASB pronouncements. Keep informed of current technical developments and pending matters important to our profession and clients.
  • Plan, organize, delegate and control your work so assignments are completed in a reasonable time and in a form suitable for review.
  • Handle more complex audit areas & reviews.
  • Begin to supervise small engagements as an “in-charge” and review the work of interns and staff accountants.

What’s in it for you (WIIFY)

  • Reasonable work schedules–average 50 hr. workweeks during busy season; average 40 hr. workweeks outside busy season, plus optional compressed workweeks and early Fridays dismissal during slower months.
  • “Dress for your day” dress code (ie: casual attire in the office, business attire for client meetings).
  • A fantastic career in public accounting, one that fits into your personal lifestyle; we are flexible and seek to make a career in public accounting viable for all who want it.
  • Direct access and support from partners and managers.
  • Genuinely nice people to work with – a true team environment.
  • Awesome compensation and benefits package.
  • Professional development and upward mobility.
