The Episcopal Diocese of California has a part-time diocesan auditor position available immediately.
The diocesan auditor works from his or her home office and reports to the chief financial officer of the Diocese. He or she schedules appointments with the 80 congregations and several related institutions of the Diocese in the counties of San Mateo, San Francisco, Marin, Alameda, and Contra Costa to review their accounting records, as required by church law, and prepare simple financial statements and notes.
The audits are not GAAP audits, but rather a review and inspection of accounting and other records to ensure compliance with church procedures and policies. Upon approval of the audit by the diocesan chief financial officer, the auditor mails a cover letter with the financial statements and any comments to the congregation’s leadership.
The work week averages between 10 and 25 hours. Audits are scheduled throughout the year, with an emphasis on late spring, summer and fall appointments. The auditor normally has complete control over his or her schedule provided audits are completed on a timely basis.
Compensation is hourly and competitive. Travel expenses are reimbursed. Benefits include participation in the diocesan 403b plan, including a five percent automatic contribution plus a four percent match, short term and long term disability insurance, and unemployment insurance. Medical and dental insurance is not provided but may be purchased.
The successful candidate will possess a thorough knowledge of accounting procedures and sound judgement. Familiarity with Episcopal Church practices is helpful but not required.
Proven general ledger, financial statement preparation, cash flow analysis, and/or audit experience.
Facility with QuickBooks is required. Knowledge of other accounting software is highly desired.
