Located in Toowoomba, this well-established Professional Practice firm is seeking an Intermediate or Senior Accountant to join their close knit and growing team.

R&D Accounting is a dynamic firm of accountants and business advisors who specialise in working with Small Business clients.  Our primary services are Accounting & Taxation, specialising in Structuring, Business Mentoring, Tax Minimisation, Asset Protection and building personal wealth. 

The culture of our firm is very important to us, and it can only be achieved by employing the "right"people.  While we believe that we provide outstanding technical services to our clients, it's just as important to us that the experience for our clients is one they enjoy.  Having the ability to provide the answers our clients want is obviously important, but so is friendliness and being available to our clients when they need us.

We are a progressive firm who does not monitor employees via the conventional productivity and write-off methods.  Our belief is that Partners should trust staff enough so they do not need to constantly worry about someone looking over their shoulder.  We believe our staff should be concentrating their efforts on the best interest of the client and the firm and by working with the partners to achieve this.
