Accountant - Mid-Sized Blue Collar Company + Stellar Benefits - Lincoln, NE

Great opportunity to step into a fast paced company with a busy office in this important position.  This is a newly created position due to the company’s growth.  Historically, the CFO/Controller has rolled up their sleeves and handled most accounting duties while supervising the Payables, Receivables and Payroll teams.  This position will be a new addition to staff, allowing you to take the General Ledger blocking and tackling off the Controller’s plate, freeing him up to work on more strategic projects to help the business continue to grow.

 

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who:

  • Loves to be the “go-to” person for all things General Ledger as you will own the bank reconciliations, journal entries, accruals, cash accounting and be the right hand to the Controller
  • Would love to be mentored by a patient, thorough Controller who will take the time necessary to ensure that you understand the company and position thoroughly
  • Enjoys always being busy…this company has grown steadily for many years and no two days will be the same in this fast paced, high octane environment
  • Appreciates the value of GREAT benefits…this company takes pride in paying employees well and offering a health insurance and retirement plan that helps them attract and retain great talent
  • Wants to make an impact…this is a key role on a team that is mission critical to the success of the company

 

Opportunities like this do not surface very often in Lincoln.  This is a great position for someone looking to step up and “do more” or an experienced individual who doesn’t want to run a department to play a key role working for a stellar leadership team.  Excellent work-life balance and jeans every day!
