Job Description

Accounting Assistant

Do you consider yourself a highly detailed individual? Are you a hard worker with high initiative, a positive attitude and able to work with limited direction? Do you have strong communication and customer service skills, and past experience entering accounting data into a system? If so, this Accounting Assistant opportunity may be a great fit for you!

Who We Are: At Iowa Farm Bureau, we are committed to the people, progress, and pride of Iowa. The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation is a leading organization that advocates for the sustained success of agriculture, Iowa's farm families and their communities. An organization where some of Iowa's most talented people, drawn to the service of farm families, have come to develop rewarding and long-lasting careers. As the most respected grassroots farm organization in the state, the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation offers a unique opportunity to be an advocate for farmers in a dynamic and challenging environment.

What You'll Do: As an Accounting Assistant, you will perform accounting and administrative support duties for the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation. You will be responsible for providing County Farm Bureau (CFB) accounting support by assisting with general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll functions for CFB companies using Centralized Accounting Service. You will also assist with the training of CFB Office Assistants by providing effective and timely communication and guidance as needed. While you are performing routine accounting activities, no two days are the same. You'll be joining a small but mighty team of 5, so flexibility is key as you will have other duties as assigned.

What It Takes to Join Our Team:

  • Associate Degree in Accounting required plus at least two years relevant experience. In lieu of a degree, must have at least six years of relevant work experience.

  • Basic knowledge of accounting systems and principles required.

  • Microsoft Office experience required - Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

  • Must be detail oriented and have good research, analytical, problem solving and organizational skills.

  • Proficient with 10-key calculator.

  • Some travel may be required.

  • Work from our office in West Des Moines, Iowa.

What We Offer You: When you're on our team, you get more than a great paycheck. We offer a 401K with match, a defined benefit retirement plan, an incentive bonus, student loan repayment assistance, low cost health, dental, and vision benefits, and life and disability insurance options. We also offer paid time off, including holidays, and teams who know how to have fun. Work/life balance is extremely important to this team, while we work hard we also understand that while work is important, it's not the only thing. Add to that an onsite wellness facility with fitness classes and programs, a daycare center, a cafeteria, and even an onsite medical clinic. Iowa Farm Bureau....where the grass really IS greener!

If you're interested in joining a company that has a long history of stability, one that appreciates its employees and offers great benefits, we invite you to apply today!
