Looking for a Career in Accounting?
If you're an ambitious accountant looking for a career in public accounting we invite you to contact us today.
We are not your typical Geelong accounting firm who simply produce income tax returns and financial statements for our clients. Here at Scotts Chartered Accountants we strive to be the best in our field and look for accounting staff who want to do more than just prepare tax returns and complete GST compliance work.
Business owners want more than just compliance, they want to grow their revenue, their profits and their business value. Accordingly, we look to recruit team members that want to do more than just 'keep the score' for our clients.
Why could Scotts Chartered Accountants be the right accounting firm for you? In a nutshell, we look after and respect our team members and offer you more than just a job, we offer you a career. Our white glove treatment extends beyond clients to our team members and we are very conscious of our employees work life balance. We invest heavily in both technical training and technology and look for team members who have an eye for detail, a thirst for learning and a pro-active approach. We also seek team members who fit our core values of expertise, passion and integrity.
The truth is, we will only continue to grow if we engage committed team players who are dedicated to helping clients achieve their financial
goals. We offer individuals with a passion for accounting, tax and business development a real career opportunity.
