What- the Role: 

Our client is looking to hire a bright, results-oriented, and systems savvy Accounting Clerk to join their team. The new employee will process accounts payable (corporate AP, as well as AP for various commercial and residential projects) and input commercial and residential leases. Additionally, the Acct Clerk will also participate in a major system implementation project over the next several months (converting from several systems to one streamlined version of YARDI).
