Ready to make a big difference in the lives of business owners and their employees? We have a great business model.
We continue to grow and are hiring.
We offer fully remote, WFH employee positions – either full-time or part-time.
The person filling one of the full-time positions will not only serve clients but help us grow. Our mission and values mean that the person in this position could have a significant opportunity to scratch an entrepreneurial itch.
If you want to work part-time, with our approach, you will have significant schedule flexibility and work from home 20-30 hours per week.
We were founded in 2001. In 2016, our approach changed from the typical “Rent a CFO” model to building a comprehensive process to make CFO, Controller, and FP&A perspective, strategy, and services available to smaller companies. Most of the owners of those companies have not been exposed to real financial talent. And they need our help.
We work with business owners and managers who lead growing companies with revenue of $3 million to $50 million. We use our proprietary process, The Path to 12%, to increase our clients’ net profit margins. Our process also improves the life margin of the owners – a welcome change. Our clients see tremendous value in our services and tell their friends. Because our approach to serving clients is new and evolving and because the business is growing quickly, we have the feel of a startup.
As an employee, you will use your financial and operational perspective to implement and customize The Path to 12% with clients. Because these clients typically need strong financial talent, you can expect to have a long-term relationship with these owners and managers. You will become their “go-to” person for matters relating to business strategy, finance and accounting without leaving the comfort of your home office. Using the Path to 12% and your skills, you will play three roles: consultant (bringing leadership and expertise to the clients), contractor (doing some work for the clients), and coach (encouraging people to achieve their goals).
We use GoToMeeting and the latest cloud-based software to serve clients all over the country without travel. We do it well. Our clients love us and stay around for a long time – the ultimate compliment.
Organizationally, we look like a public accounting firm – peers working in a collegial environment but engaged with their own clients – but we do not do audits, taxes, or accounting. This team of seven professionals works together to identify opportunities, solve problems and celebrate client accomplishments.
This type of arrangement is not for everyone. Some people will miss the camaraderie of an office environment. Some people will not like juggling multiple clients. But you may not be like some people; if it sounds interesting to you, let’s talk. No one seems to miss the accounting close cycle. If it is not for you, would you forward the link to someone who might be interested?
The first step is to email your resume and a cover letter explaining why you think you would be a good fit for The Herring Group and this position to: Hiring [at] Herring-Group [dot] com.
You will discover that we operate a little differently not only in our delivery of services to clients but also in our hiring process.
Watch your email. If you do not see a reply from Hiring at The Herring Group in your inbox within 1 hour, please check your other email folders.
We look forward to hearing from you.
