Ready to take on some of the most powerful forces in our society? We’re looking for an Accounting Associate to join a fierce, smart team challenging global corporations, holding them accountable, and creating a world where all people can thrive.
Why you’ll love coming to work every day
You’ll help change the world by being part of fearless and winning campaigns. You’ll be joining an organization that’s not satisfied with the world as it is—and has a vision for how it should be. When your quest is ending corporate abuse, you can’t be afraid to name names and demand what the world needs. For more than 40 years, we’ve been exposing and challenging the abuses of the likes of Nestlé, ExxonMobil, Philip Morris International, McDonald’s, and more. We don’t back down, and we run campaigns until we win.
You’ll work with awesome people. Join a team of passionate, kind, determined, optimistic, and solutions-oriented folks. We work hard, celebrate victories large and small, and always have each other’s backs.
You can take on big responsibilities as you go. You’ll thrive here as you develop new skills, tackle new challenges, learn, and grow. We pay lots of attention to building staff leadership, and we provide support and training to help you grow in your role.
You’ll be part of an organization committed to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression. We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of people who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: Black and Indigenous people and other people of color, women, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQIA+ folks around the world. Our unique culture has been fostered by a long history of women at the helm. We are actively focusing on the leadership of our staff of color, knowing we are stronger when the organization reflects the vision of the world we’re building together.
What you’ll do
Corporate Accountability wages powerful campaigns challenging corporate abuse—and behind every campaign victory you’ll find a dynamic operations team that provides the back-end and behind-the-scenes support. Ensuring effective, efficient, and secure finances and administering our generous benefits package are key tactics to support our organizers to wage hard-hitting tactics that are stopping transnational corporations from devastating democracy, trampling human rights, and destroying our planet.
From supporting the preparation of our annual external audit to reconciling bank accounts to maintaining our general ledger and preparing reports & tools for the organization's budget and benefits management, you’ll be the go-to administrator who plays an essential part in enabling our team to make an impact.
This position provides ample room to grow and develop your skills. Whether you’re looking to develop skills in accounting, administration, or database management, you will have plenty of opportunities to build new skills and follow your passion as you advance our mission.
As you coordinate with our operations team, you’ll take on new projects and leadership—making an ever greater impact toward building the equitable world we envision.
