Accounting Assistant

Venor is proud to partner with the North End Community Health Center in their search for an Accounting Assistant.

Located on Gottingen Street, NECHC is in the heart of a unique and culturally diverse community. As the Accounting Assistant, you will be a part of the accounting team reporting directly to the Manager of Finance. The Accounting Assistant is responsible for supporting the operations, accounting, and backup payroll and benefits administration for the North End Community Health Centre, supporting the organization’s strategic plan, mission, vision, and values. Working collaboratively with other members of the NECHC Finance team, third-party organizations and members of the NECHC health team this position will coordinate the day-to-day operations of NECHC.
