Job Description:

Seeking Experienced Audit Senior to join our team!
Cover & Rossiter, an award-winning, full-service CPA accounting and advisory firm located in Wilmington, Delaware, is looking for an AUDIT SENIOR with 2 to 4 years of audit experience (CPA preferred) to join our team.

Why Join the Cover & Rossiter team?--

Cover & Rossiter is a great place to work with many unique benefits. In July 2018, we moved into a beautiful, new state-of-the-art office space at Little Falls Centre One. The configuration of the office space and innovative workstations, which include sit-to-stand desks, are intended to facilitate collaboration and improve productivity. The building also offers a fitness center available for free to all employees.

In an industry that is legendary for long hours and burnout, Cover & Rossiter is committed to our employees' well-being, both in the office and in their personal life. We make a conscious effort to establish plans and policies designed to allow for flexibility and balance between work and home life demands. We began offering telecommuting options nearly 20 years ago - well before most CPA firms would consider such a benefit. Cover & Rossiter enforces a maximum of 55 hours per week during tax season, whereas most other companies enforce a minimum. We believe that employees who are well rested and not overworked produce better, more accurate and more efficient products and services for our clients.

We want our accountants to not only be technically proficient but to also play a role in the firm's future growth. We regularly invest in firm-wide professional development initiatives that go beyond accounting and focus on professionalism, accountability and client service.
