Job Description for Staff Accountant

Staff accountants are responsible for a range of financial duties and practices, and computer skills are essential in this position to use advanced budgeting and auditing software programs, as well as type quickly and run various company reports. They are also responsible for maintaining a balanced budget and ensuring that all financial statements are prepared and audited carefully.

Staff accountants must ensure that all state and federal laws and regulations regarding financial practices are followed closely, and many are also tasked with assisting management in the controller's department. The ability to sit for extended periods of time is necessary, as they often work on computers for most of their shifts. It is important to maintain a positive demeanor, as the ability to cooperate with colleagues and work in a team environment will keep the company running smoothly from within. Dependability is also important, especially when their time away from the office may disrupt the flow of work.

It is necessary to be able to lift up to 25 pounds, as the need to lift and move filing boxes and other small- and medium-sized packages will occasionally arise. A bachelor’s degree in accounting or a related field is often a minimum requirement for this position, and some employers also prefer those who have relevant experience.
