Accountant in Ottawa, Ontario

With my eighteen years of experience in both public/private accounting I would be the perfect addition to your company.

In my previous years’ experience I have worked on the full accounting cycle, reconciliations, government remittances and payroll, prepared monthly statements, year-end preparation, corporate tax returns and supervised accounting staff.

I work well as a team player or independently as well I will take the initiative to learn new things, will self-teach myself if needed, capable of working in difficult and demanding situations along with problem solving, using sound judgment and meeting tight deadlines. Overtime is not a problem for me as I am a hard and dedicated worker that likes to be put to the challenge.

On an added note my current job position is no longer required due to the lack of work and efficiency of training the other staff members. I would be available to start immediately as a result. My employer is also aware that I am looking.
