Tax Associate (experienced)

The future is you…

We’re looking for great folks to be the next leaders of our firm. Start as an Experienced Associate but envision yourself as a senior associate, 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, and there’s no need to leave the industry. There is a place for you on the WBL team, too.
