Job Description

The Accountant II is the fully qualified journey level classification in the professional Accountant series and reports to a supervisory or manager position. Incumbents perform the full range of assignments requiring a greater technical knowledge than those given to the Accountant I class. Incumbents may be assigned the responsibility for an accounting subdivision or for the accounting function of a County department, or may be given auditing assignments of average difficulty. In addition, incumbents may supervise clerical or technical staff, and may mentor Accountant Trainees.



The Accountant II is distinguished from the Senior Accountant classification in that the latter is the advanced journey and lead level class in the series. Incumbents perform complex accounting and auditing assignments requiring an extensive technical knowledge and the exercise of a greater degree of independent judgment than the Accountant II class.



Advancement to the next level is obtained by competitive selection through an open recruitment.
