Job Overview:

Summary: Under general supervision, is responsible for professional accounting work of average difficulty and supervisory work of routine difficulty; and performs related work as required.

Distinguishing Features: *This is the working class in the accounting sub-series, the entry class being subsumed by Accountant 1. Under general supervision, employees in the class lead or supervise a small team of sub-professional accounting personnel in performing specialized or general accounting tasks and are expected to exercise judgment and initiative in handling work assignments. Assignment to a specialty without supervisory responsibilities is provided for in rare cases such as in acting as special accountant on uniquely difficult and problem accounts or serving as the only accountant in a small department. Work may include training of less experienced professional accountants. This class is flexibly staffed with Auditor 1 and Accountant 1, and differs in that incumbents of the latter perform entry level accounting duties under immediate supervision. This class differs from that of Accountant 3 in that an incumbent of the latter performs more difficult and complex accounting duties and may lead or supervise other professional accountants.
