Are you an Accountant Superstar?
…Super Mums Wanted!
YES – this is a legitimate job posting 🙂
Hi, my name is Isaac Chung.
I own three growing businesses and need some operational support – hopefully you can help!
Before you read any further, YES I’m a real person. If you’d like more info about me, Visit my website to read about me:
OK – now you know I’m a legitimate business owner. Even though you’re finding me on the internet (which might have a bad reputation in your mind), I hope you can see I’ve got a real business, with real human beings as clients and customers. Let’s dig in….
WHO I’M LOOKING FOR
1) You Suit Our Style of Online work
You’re based in Singapore
English is your first language, you’re good at written and spoken English.
You’re tech-comfortable. If you can navigate WhatsApp, Skype and YouTube easily, you’ve got enough internet chops to work with us.
You’ve got a Local Telephone, Computer with Microsoft Office installed and reliable high-speed internet connection with reliable electricity.
2) You Love to Monitor and follow Checklists
If you give your Husband checklists and monitor his progress, you’ll love working with us!
Our whole business is quite structured.
Everything runs on checklists, guidelines and procedures.
Everything is organized within Project Management software.
3) You Really Enjoy Working with Numbers
If you’re someone who loves solving problems, this job might be for you.
I’m looking for someone who is independent and meticulous to handle my business portfolio of clients’ accounts such as preparing full set of accounts for SME, income tax calculation and submission, GST reporting and filing, payroll matters and unaudited financial statements.
I’m hoping you can communicate with client (e.g. requesting information, signing documents, answering questions). Of course, full training will be provided.
I’m also hoping you’ll help create checklists (and follow them too) so we can keep quality really high on everything we do. Again, training will be provided on how we setup our checklists.
YES THIS JOB IS FLEXIBLE SO YOU CAN BE A GREAT MOM!
95%+ of your role can be done any time(s) of day, any day(s) of the week. I’ll give you a task and a deadline; when you work on it is completely up to you.
This means you can be with your baby when (s)he’s awake, feed them whenever you’re called into action, and even watch your baby anytime you need to.
Baby getting a little cranky or sick and you need to throw your “Dr. Mum” hat on for 20 mins? No problem – work can wait 🙂
THIS JOB IS LOW-STRESS SO YOU CAN “LEAVE WORK AT WORK”
My main team member, Chingny *LOVES* how structured our company is.
Because everything is in checklists and procedures, she always knows what’s expected of her. It’s easy to learn and execute tasks because everything is so step-by-step, just like a good recipe!
She knows what success looks like. Tasks are predictable.
And it’s easy to start and stop tasks (anytime she needs to switch into Mum-mode) because everything is clearly explained in our written procedures, and everything is clearly tracked in our Project Management software.
She just makes a note of where she stops, then picks up from that (clearly defined!) spot once she comes back.
Note: if you’re a super free-spirited person, dislike structure / authority, and/or you prefer clutter to order (just look at your desk right now), this position probably won’t work for you. Loving to follow *and* create checklists is crucial for this role.
Timeline: starting as soon as I find someone qualified. Next few weeks would be nice, although I don’t need to rush.
30-Day Trial: we’ll start with a 30-day trial to see how it goes. If we both like the experience, we’ll carry on.
Hours: between 20-40 hours per week to begin with.
Pay: $10/hr. (we will negotiate again after the trial)
