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. Even if your end game isn’t to become a partner, you will enjoy the variety and challenge of public accounting. At WBL, there’ll always be a place for you.

WBL is different from other firms. We are committed to maintaining our success through organic growth, not by acquiring or merging with other firms. This strategy keeps the pace of growth steady and manageable while providing BIG opportunities for you! Join a firm that grows its future leaders from within.

  • Handle more complex audit areas and reviews.
  • Begin to supervise small engagements as an “in-charge” and review the work of interns and staff accountants.
