Senior Audit Accountant, Municipal Practice

Location: Farmington Hills, MI.


A Senior Governmental Accountant is in a position of advanced technical aptitude and supervisory responsibilities.  A senior must be able to handle more complex assignments than the staff, begin to learn the complete process of managing all tasks regarding client work, and take a lead role in developing/reviewing the work of less experienced staff. The senior role is the bridge between the staff, who are executing the client-service related tasks, and the management, who are strategizing and overseeing successful completion of efficient engagement activity and top quality client service.  The senior needs to be the liaison to management, and therefore needs to develop a broader scope of the business into a supervisory role. The senior increasingly needs to be able to perform the most complex technical tasks of the engagement and work more and more with less supervision.
