Taking the Challenge


To be a part of something new, something challenging and innovative in the area of professional services takes a unique individual. You have to be entrepreneurial, connected, driven, tenacious and personable. You want to own your success and you are unafraid of blazing pathways in a competitive market. You are tired of same day-to-day routine and looking for a challenging opportunity to work on multiple clients with varying business needs at a strategic level.  You enjoy working at different client locations while maintaining a work/life balance. We have both part-time and full time (30+ hours) opportunities, dependent on client needs.   


If this is you, vcfo is listening.
