The Controller’s Office at the Rhode Island School of Design is pleased to announce a vacancy for an Accounting Manager. The Accounting Manager is responsible for overseeing the general accounting function with an in-depth knowledge of principles and practices within higher education accounting, including the application of GAAP. The Accounting Manager completes the general ledger accounts and the issuance of reports and statements – including RISD’s quarterly financials and annual statements. In addition, the selected candidate will ensure internal standard accounting processes and practices are followed in the management of accounting related data and records and provide professional support to the controller’s position and supervision to the accounting staff. The ideal candidate will be a detail oriented team player. Because we are a small team, it’s important that the candidate have the ability to be nimble with projects and tasks.

The Controller’s Office is charged with the stewardship of the college’s financial resources, including internal and external financial reporting, oversight of payroll, responsibility for grant, contract and tax reporting. This includes preparation of the quarterly and annual financial statements and tax filings. The Controller’s Office also supports the functioning of the Audit, Finance and Investment Committees of the Board of Trustees. We also oversee financial compliance related to higher education regulations and debt issuance.

Our mission is to provide excellent customer service across all of our functional responsibilities while maintaining the highest integrity in financial reporting. We strive to achieve this by working collaboratively with all college departments to deliver accurate and timely information in a courteous, cooperative and cost-effective manner.
