Senior Accountant

Are you a senior accountant with a CPA designation?  Do you have initiative, an eagerness to learn, grow and thrive doing meaningful accounting work?

Are you looking to take that next step in your career, one that will give you independence and the chance to work directly with clients to provide a personalized approach to their diverse financial needs?

Look no further.

We are Olsen Joly LLP, and since 1981, our team of professional accountants has been helping businesses and individuals meet their accounting and taxation needs. 

Our successful business has been built on expert knowledge, personalized guidance, and one-on-one consultations. As a result, we get to know our clients in a meaningful way that big firms cannot. 

We are looking for a senior accountant to join our team.  Olsen Joly LLP is expanding, so there is a lot of growth and room for advancement.


As our new senior accountant your primary responsibility will be to support our clients by evaluating their current financial situation and business results while helping to ensure the accuracy of their financial data.  You will prepare complex compilation and review engagements. You will assist with various services such as tax planning and preparation, including complex corporate and personal tax returns. You will also liaise with the government and CRA on behalf of our clients where necessary. 

Your industry knowledge is valuable, but what will set you apart from others is the ability to build and maintain a great working relationship with our clients.  As you grow, you will take on more advanced consultative duties. You will take the time and truly understand their individual needs and genuinely seek to improve and add value to their business.  You will become a trusted source with our clients, which will help guide their decisions and effectively transition their business into the future. 

Working at Olsen Joly LLP

Our bright and modern office is in Red Deer County. Here you will enjoy an open-concept workspace that will allow you to easily interact with other team members. As you grow and take on more challenging tasks, we’ll be there to support you along the way.  You’ll enjoy having one-on-one time with the firm’s partners. There will be plenty of direct interaction with clients. You will have an opportunity to learn and take care of clients as a whole and won’t be limited to working within a specific division.

We also offer the option to work remotely if that is a better fit for you.

We service all different kinds of clients and industries and have helped thousands of companies achieve their goals.

When we’re not working, we like to have fun. Our office hosts various parties throughout the year to celebrate our successes including activities such as golfing and scavenger hunts.
