Company Information

Does your current employer offer an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii as a simple “thank you” for your service after your 5, 7 or 10 year work anniversary? This incredible Navigator Recruiting client does. Providing its professional service for nearly 100 years, this thriving 75-employee company understands the value of employees, has an excellent culture, and rewards employees on their 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th work anniversaries (and every 5th year after that) with generous gift certificates and customized trips to destinations you choose, such as Disneyland, Myrtle Beach, Hawaii. This company is located in Cheyenne, WY (pop. 100,000) – a beautiful, affordable historic capitol city offering high life quality, low taxes and clean air, 90-minutes north of Denver and Denver International Airport and close to incredible rock climbing, hiking, skiing, lakes, State Parks & National Parks, yet without any traffic.

In this in-office role, the Accounting Manager will use his or her excellent interpersonal skills to manage, mentor and lead a team of six (6) employees, including an Accounting Supervisor in the Accounting Services Department. This department has dedicated employees with excellent tenure who do not need a micro-manager but instead someone to lead by improving processes, offering mentorship and training and further growth. This department is responsible for full-service bookkeeping, payroll processing, accounts payable, bank reconciliations and monthly financials. Sixty to seventy percent (60-70%) of the Accounting Manager’s time will be spent managing the department and working with staff to help them continue to improve and improving processes, procedures and creating efficiencies. Thirty to forty percent (30-40%) of the Accounting Manager’s time will be spent preparing and analyzing accrual basis financial statements and other hands-on accounting/finance-related work. Hours for this role will be mostly 40-45 hours/week year-round. However, during the busiest month (January) and for some weeks in April, July and October, hours could be in the 50-55 hours/week range.

Benefits include an understanding and supportive management team, tenured employees who enjoy working for this company, a competitive salary, a bonus (based on company and individual performance), a retirement plan, health/dental/vision insurance, flexible spending account, self-managed PTO (generally, at this level, 4-5 weeks of PTO is customary), participation in the experienced-based employee recognition program, continuing education and an employee assistance program. The company is a strong believer in giving employees the resources to expand certifications and technical skills and offer incentives for achieving designations/certifications that will bring value to the company. The office also closes at noon every Friday in June and July so employees can enjoy longer summer weekends. (This time off does not count towards PTO.) The firm is committed to finding the right candidate and will offer relocation assistance as well. This role must be done from Cheyenne, WY and while there is some flexibility, this is mainly an in-office role.
