There’s always demand for accountants. But it used to be tough to find accounting jobs that didn’t require a full-time commitment. That’s changed. Online platforms now offer a wealth of flexible accounting jobs.
Here are a few sites where you can find flexible accounting jobs.
Robert Half is a great place to start a job search, when you’re a financial professional. This well-established staffing company places full-time, part-time and temporary workers with hundreds of companies located all over the country. It also has operations in many other parts of the world. There’s no cost to sign up and look for accounting jobs. All the costs associated with finding work here are paid by employers.
Acuity Financial is a full-service financial services firm that enlists remote workers to handle flexible accounting, bookkeeping, and tax work. The site works primarily with small businesses and start-ups, offering them fixed-rate accounting packages and a la carte work. The company is headquartered in Atlanta. But the site’s accountants and bookkeepers can work from anywhere in the world.
Bookminders is recommended by many as one of the best places to find home-based accounting jobs. But if you are interested in employment with the company, you must reside in reasonable proximity to one of their physical locations. That’s mainly because the site occasionally asks workers to come in for training and meetings. The company operates offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Texas and Washington, D.C.
Bookminders hires its staff. Glassdoor estimates that the site’s pay ranges from $21 to $46 per hour, depending on position. This puts Bookminder’s pay in the lower range for similar accounting work. But employees are enthusiastic about the work-life balance here.
