Robert Half Controller in CORTLAND, New York


Part remote position!!!! Work from home 2 or 3 days a week!!! Chris Preble from the Syracuse Robert Half office has been engaged by this for profit organization to hire a Controller. This organization does not care about your industry experience. You can come from for profit (any industry) or not for profit. Even coming right out of public accounting is fine. The main requirement is you being a CPA with Accounting Manager, Assistant Controller, Controller type experience.

If you have some type of ties to the area and are not local right now (too far outside the "occasional driving zone," getting relo assistance is not a problem at all.

This Cortland area organization has had a lot of growth and this Controller role will supervise 2 or 3 staff and work close with executive leadership. The position is diverse, you'll be doing a bit of everything...analysis, budgeting, internal controls, financial reporting, process improvement, etc. I have a job description but it's not going to show you anything you haven't seen on other Controller job descriptions, ha ha.

Key for this one is fit. Someone who is good with being a self starter, okay in a non micromanagement role where you'll work and lead pretty independently.

If you're confidentially open to opportunities and a CPA (or close to getting the credentials or able to become active with your CPA again), please send me your resume and we can take it from there. Even if this one isn't "the one" there's plenty of other roles I'm working on that I can also have you on the radar for.
