Accounting and Business Advisor, Morrison & Company, Chico, CA

Overview:
Located in Chico, CA, Morrison & Company seeks an innovative accounting professional to join our advisory team; the successful candidate will join us in supporting our clients with Interim/Outsource accounting and related business advisory assistance.  A strong accounting skill set is required but direct experience with all aspects of our services is not; we provide mentoring and both internal training and external continuing professional education.  Our hiring approach can be summed up as “Hire talent, teach knowledge.”

An accounting degree is required, CPA a plus, though we are not a CPA firm.  Instead, our Interim/Outsource service line directly assists clients with a variety of accounting and related business issues.  Unlike many professional service firms, travel is minimal.

Responsibilities include:
1. Contribute to or lead engagements in the areas of accounting and related business advisory services. 
2. Innovative and persistent pursuit of client business objectives.
3. Serve as the “face of the firm” for our clients, helping to develop and maintain close and trusting business relationships.

Requirements include:
1. Bachelor’s degree or higher in accounting.  CPA preferred.
2. Four or more years’ relevant experience.  Combination of CPA firm and private enterprise experience is ideal. 
3. Strong teamwork orientation and a forward-looking mindset are critical.
4. Food industry, agricultural, CPG, processing, and/or manufacturing industry experience a plus but not required.
5. Professional-level Microsoft Office skills, particularly Excel and Word.
6. Experience with common business software platforms (e.g., Navision, Sage, Famous, SAP, QuickBooks, etc.).
7. Effective written and oral communication skills.
8. Candidates from out of the area should explain their interest in relocating.

Compensation includes:
Talk to us about details and vesting, but along with a competitive salary our compensation includes medical insurance, 15 days PTO (paid time off) annually, a 401(k) plan with a 3% safe harbor contribution (which means you don’t have to make a match, we just contribute it), an annual bonus plan, and more.  Relocation assistance considered if needed.  Click here for more on what's it's like to work for Morrison & Company.
