I am looking to expand my practice by adding a part time senior manager that would like to grow into a partnership position in the short term. I would like to hire you as an employee for the first year and we will discuss partnership possibilities at the end of the first year.
I expect that that first year would result in about $50,000 in pay to you for about 600 hours of billable time primarily between January 1st and June 30th. This will increase based on new clients obtained through advertising. You would be responsible for preparing half the files in the practice (primarily Canadian and US personal income tax returns) and reviewing the work of the junior preparers doing the other half of the files (primarily Canadian personal and corporate returns). My junior preparers are starting to do very well but are nowhere near ready to operate at a senior manager level yet.
This would suit someone who is either looking for an excellent work/life balance or someone who is ambitious and would like to grow the practice with me. I am looking for someone with a strong background in personal and corporate taxes and at least a year of experience in reviewing junior preparer files. This could be someone that has recently attained their CPA and is looking to start their own practice but is not quite ready to start a practice from scratch. A year as a senior manager would give you the experience you need with US taxes to be able to buy into an expatriate based practice and also to determine if we will be a good personalty mix as I will not be ready to retire for many years yet. It could also be someone is currently working full time for a larger firm but would like to scale back on hours and learn something new to boot.
If this is something that would be of interest to you starting in late fall/early 2021 please contact me by phone or email and we can discuss possibilities.
