Job Opening at Fairwinds (again)…

Not too long ago, I posted that I was finally getting some help in my office from a new senior accountant. The person we hired was a great addition to our team, being intelligent and a good fit with our existing members. She caught a lot of stuff up for me, and this was allowing me to actually go home on time for a change. 🙂

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, she's decided to leave us to return home to family and friends in Ontario. I did my very best to convince her to stay, as did some of our other team members, but it wasn't happening. I understand her reasons, and can empathize with her, but it still sucks. I genuinely wish her all the best in the future, and hope that the move gives her the support she needs.
Regardless, this is a certainly a blow to us, as we're just entering our busy season, and means that I'm back to advertising again. It also means that I'm bound to be putting in more hours until I can get the right person in and trained. 🙁

At any rate, as I'm looking for someone, I figured that I might as well post the job ad here... so here it is. If you are interested, or you know someone who would fit the bill, please send a resume through to us at the email address provided below.
