We are a CPA firm in New Minas, Nova Scotia that works directly with owner-managers and personal income tax clients to address their business, estate, tax planning, accounting and advisory needs. Are you an enthusiastic, self-starter who is passionate about helping and guiding owner-managed businesses? Does working in a small firm which prides itself on recognition, flexibility, mentorship and hands-on training sound appealing? What about Casual Mondays, BBQs, apple picking and community involvement? If so, a Co-op term with our team at IFTL Chartered Professional Accountants might be the right choice for you!

Our firm has been working with business owners in the Annapolis Valley and beyond for over 30 years. Our team of CPAs, technicians and administrative staff are rich in experience and collaborative in practice. We work hard with our clients, during the exciting start up phase; navigating the changing business environment through a company’s growth to maturity; or assisting when it is time to wind down; we collaborate with our clients so they can focus on their business while we provide support along the way. As part of our firm, you will develop your professional accounting career while receiving mentorship from our team of partners, staff and students. As a co-op student you will be exposed to the day-to-day operations of a public accounting practice including communicating and interacting with staff and clients, assisting on projects, and preparation of personal income tax returns and other business advisory services. If you are highly motivated and love to work in a deadline driven environment this is the place for you.

The successful candidate must be:
• Looking to work towards their CPA designation.
• Proficient with computers and software including Microsoft (word, excel, outlook).

• A positive attitude and a strong desire to learn.
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
