Senior Project Accountant

Position Summary

Do you believe Accounting Departments secretly rule the world? We might have the job for you. EDiS is on the lookout for a Senior Project Accountant who can manage numbers as skillfully as our teams manage projects. But this role is not just about crunching numbers; it’s about being the financial backbone of our construction projects.

As our Senior Project Accountant, you’ll dive into the deep end of project costs with our Project Managers and Operations managers. From preparing invoices to managing subcontractor payments to project cost monitoring and reporting, you’ll have your eye on the ball (and the bottom line).

We’re not just looking for someone who knows their way around a spreadsheet. We want a proactive thinker, a strategic planner who can ensure accurate and timely reporting for several concurrent construction projects, and puts their foot down when asked “are these numbers right?” If you like how that sounds, and the idea of being part of a company that builds dreams and legacies – then read on! We might be meant for each other.

Your priorities will be:

  1. Financial Maestro: As the Senior Project Accountant, you’ll direct the financial symphony of (and coordinate the variety of financial and accounting tasks for) our construction projects.
  2. Communication Conductor: Liaising with Project Managers (PMs) and Operations Managers (OMs) will be your forte. You’ll ensure that contract documents, change orders, and billing-related services are in order and running smoothly.
  3. Cost Review Leader: You’ll lead the monthly project cost reviews with the Operations Team. This is a critical and strategic task, and is one of the processes that contributes to the overall success of our projects.
  4. Billing Efficiency Strategist: You’ll have an eagle eye for opportunities to maximize client billing. Your proactive approach in communicating opportunities to PMs and OMs will be key in optimizing our financial performance.
