Three Things You Need to Be a Successful Accountant
Who we are: North America’s largest wine and spirits distributor. We seek out the best talent to support our large client base and are lucky to employ over 20,000 of the brightest minds in the industry.
Who you are: An accounting and finance professional looking for an opportunity to play an integral role in a premier organization.
Are you curious about what specific qualities we look for in our finance and accounting candidates? Here are our top three:
Attention to Detail
We seek candidates that have an innate awareness of detail. A role within finance requires you to track activities, review forecasts, prepare monthly decks and manage funds. You are tasked with overseeing and providing insight towards our financial strategy, and, considering our presence in the wine and spirits industry, there is no room for error.
It’s important for our accounting and finance employees to enjoy working as a team and effectively communicate with others. Whether you’re an analyst or a finance director, you will be in frequent meetings with business partners, sales, suppliers and development professionals. As a keeper of our accounts, you need to know how to communicate well so the different components of our organization are operating under the same idea.
Besides monitoring our expenditures, you will be on the lookout for risks and opportunities to improve our financial status. We will be looking to you as an expert to make suggestions that could add value or help exceed our goals.
Although we expect a lot out of our employees, we want them to truly love what they do and enjoy who they work with. The only way to do business is to work with people you trust, and we place a high priority on camaraderie.
