People who feel they have the relevant knowledge are encouraged to apply, regardless of if they have formally recognised certification in bookkeeping. People looking to further build their experience and skill are welcome to apply.


20 hours per month on average for the first year while working on the transition to new software and  bringing books up to date. Approximately 15 hours per month on average after the first year, exact hours to be discussed and altered as needed. The bookkeeper will be able to set their own schedule.


$30 per hour. Pay rate and total contract hours is negotiable, especially for people with significant experience who may not require the full hours as listed above.

There is the option for the bookkeeper to buy into the health insurance plan.
