Strategic Financial Consultant

Kill Busy Season Take

We are surprised to see a role with an accounting firm on here too. But this is a unique opportunity and we thought it was worth putting it in front of the KBS community.

This is a true consulting role… 50% Midwest travel and likely somewhere around a 50-hour work week. The value here is broadened exposure to different industries and businesses, and the respective finance and accounting departments that need to be built to support them. This role may be a great fit for you if either…

  1. If you are not sure what industry, size of business or direct role / responsibilities you want to pursue with the rest of your career, or
  2. You madly enjoy consulting and providing guidance around accounting personnel, budgets / reporting and operating KPI’s

What to Expect

  • You will be working directly with and in manufacturing, distribution and other middle-market businesses that are high revenue, moderate margins and low back-office employee counts.
  • You will be asked to make assessments of the accounting and finance operations for these businesses relative to their systems, staff and controls (most operating on Great Plains). Your assessments will be passed on to the BKD implementation teams for execution.
  • You will provide guidance on budgeting, forecasting and building frameworks for the client’s operating KPI reporting.

The firm is looking for someone with 8+ years of experience including accounting operations (private experience) or controller-like experience. Compensation is likely to flex heavily based upon your experience but is projected between $75k and $125k.
