Accounting Clerks

Description

Accounting clerks perform numerous financial-related tasks on a day-to-day basis. Assisting financial auditors and accountants, they maintain financial data according to established employer procedures. Depending on the clerk's level of experience, various responsibilities may include recording accounts payable and receivable, processing bills and invoices and preparing budgets and financial records. Accounting clerks generally keep track of all financial transactions that pass through an organization and they serve as the backbone of many businesses and organizations.

Due to the administrative nature of the position, certain responsibilities assigned to the accounting clerk include maintaining extensive filing systems and performing data entry. With experience, the tasks taken upon by the clerk grow in importance and difficulty. Accounting clerks have superior interpersonal and social interaction skills because they frequently deal with the public and clients via email, in person and on the telephone.

The majority of daily work depends on the use of specific computer programs since most accounting clerks have extensive knowledge of industry-specific and general computer applications and programs. Accounting clerks are a vital and valuable component of the accounting and auditing sector.
