Position – Part-Time (Seasonal)

D’Huyvetter & Swichkow is seeking an accounting and tax professional during the January through April tax season months.  This individual will assist with preparing and reviewing personal, business, and trust income tax returns during those months.

The position is being posted as a part-time position; however, we are open to a flexible, full-time schedule during January – April due to the nature of our busy season and workflow. Our firm’s core values stress a collaborative approach, productive and dedicated work ethic, and strong and timely communication with our clients.

The successful candidate will receive priority consideration for expanded employment, if desired, as the opportunity arises.
