About the Position

We're looking for a fast-paced and self-motivated Accountant that can manage a fiscal threshold of over $20 million. Sounds like you? Then boost your career and positively impact Maricopa County programs today!

At Human Services, it's not about the numbers but about serving people from birth to the end of life. If you're passionate about humanity, you can help by managing our fiscal funds. With your service, you'll ensure that the homeless have job placements, children will be introduced to quality education, and the vulnerable will have access to affordable housing or rental/utility assistance.

In this role, you will assist in preparing budgets and forecasts for the Human Services Department as we work to obtain grants that will benefit our County. You will provide fiscal grant management, including technical assistance and preparation and monitoring of department budgets and federal regulations while ensuring fiscal integrity. You'll also never experience a dull moment where you're strictly glued to your desk as you go into cities and towns to conduct on-site monitoring of local non-profit or government agencies' financial records.
