The Top 5 Types of Accounting Jobs Recruitment Firms Are Filling in 2021

Whether you’re looking for a job in accounting or hiring for a position in the field, you know it’s a role that takes more than just the ability to crunch numbers. Good accountants are also honest, dependable, organized, and strong communicators, both verbally and in writing. If this sounds like the job you want or the role you’re looking to fill, what are some of the top types of accounting jobs? Here’s a look:

1. Chief Financial Officer

This is essentially the chief officer at the helm of a company, financially speaking. They oversee and manage a range of different functions, including risks, profitability and performance, cash flow, liability, budgets and more. They also monitor the middle managers in positions such as Accounting Manager and Controller.

2. Financial Accounting / Managing

These are managers who are tasked with overseeing the financial health of a group, company, or organization. A wide range of industries use them and they dig more into the research and detail side of accounting. They perform tasks such as strategizing, analytics, measuring and reporting. They also make predictions and recommendations based on the most recent data and the financial outlook of an industry, the economy and the company itself.

3. Certified Public Accountant (CPA)

CPAs are accountants who handle a range of services for clients or their employer. This includes handling the corporate tax preparation and finance aspect of the business. Most Finance Managers, Controllers, and CFOs hold a CPA certification.

4. Tax Accountant

A tax accountant is a more specialized type of accounting. They focus solely on preparing income taxes at both the federal or state level. They can work for both companies and individuals, handling both business and personal taxes. Some are in-house as part of a larger company’s accounting team and some work directly for individuals. A tax accountant must also hold a CPA license in order to practice.

5. Forensic Accountant

A forensic accountant is part accountant and part investigator. It’s their job to use accounting, auditing, and investigative skills to examine an organization’s finances. Oftentimes, they’re looking for fraud, embezzlement, and other irregularities or hidden financial transactions. Sometimes, they will even be called on to go to court and testify.
