Robert Half International Director of Accounting in New York, New York
A successful, private-equity backed beauty, health & wellness company is hiring a Director of Accounting. The role will report to the Chief Accounting Officer and be a critical part of the company’s transformation as it looks to potentially IPO.
Responsibilities include leading the development and maintenance of internal controls and ensuring compliance with established controls. In addition, the Director of Accounting will also coordinate and assist external auditors, tax consultants, and other service providers with PBC requests, own and manage the chart of accounts to enable efficient rollup of financial statements, general ledger and subledgers, and ad-hoc analysis and projects as needed.
In partnership with the Chief Accounting Officer, the Director of Accounting will lead the company’s “transformation” through an accounting lens. The role offers direct collaboration with the CFO and CEO. But it also requires a “lead by example” approach to managing a small team.
The ideal candidate will have prior experience in a shared service environment and also leading the accounting function within a publicly-traded company. The role is 100% and offers a competitive base salary + bonus.
