Creative Financial Staffing has partnered with a Fortune 500 service organization to identify a Senior Manager of Technical Accounting & Reporting. This is a great opportunity for a Big 4 Manager who is ready to leave public but isn't sure what their next step is going to be. The Director moved from the Big 4 five years ago and said that this was the perfect transition role. The role is currently remote but will move to a flexible hybrid model (when that will happen is not determined).
