Accounting Assistant I

1. Definitions

This is the first level in the accounting assistant series. Under direct supervision, an Accounting Assistant I performs routine posting, filing and calculating duties.

Even though some supervision is required at this level, tasks are assigned on a continuing basis and employees are expected to provide work that is completely accurate and to independently identify and correct any errors that occur. However, unusual situations and inconsistencies in established procedures are referred to higher level staff. The difference between this and the next level, is that the Accounting Assistant II is typically more specialized and would be able to recognize problems and independently solve them without referring them to the next level.
