James Dickerson, Audit Manager, County Audit Division – Ada Regional Office
The Oklahoma Office of the State Auditor & Inspector (SAI) is seeking applicants with high integrity, strong work ethic, and a commitment to its Mission in our regional office in Ada, Oklahoma (Resident of Pittsburg County is ideal).
Our Mission is to independently serve the citizens of Oklahoma by promoting accountability and fiscal integrity in state and local government. It is our passion to be the leaders both elected officials and citizens turn to for unbiased information on the effectiveness and efficiency of state and local governments. State Auditor Cindy Byrd believes it is our responsibility to “Speak truth to power”. To learn more about what we do, visit our Who We Are link under the Employment Opportunities section on our webpage.
Our Culture is based on mutual respect and teamwork. Our small regional offices allow direct access to leadership, who also serve as mentors and co-problem solvers. Within SAI, we strive to promote a spirit of public service, professionalism, and camaraderie.
SAI’s Development Opportunities
We value the knowledge and insights you’ve already gained—and we provide you with the opportunities to go further. We are committed to our team’s continued development through training both on the job and in the classroom. Certified Professional Education courses are provided on a routine basis and we offer educational leave if you’re interested in pursuing professional audit certifications. If you have proactive leadership skills and increase audit experience SAI always has an opportunity to move up.
SAI’s Unique Rewards and Benefits
Our compensation package includes competitive salary, corresponding with your education and audit experience. Entry-level salaries range from $41,000 to $50,000 and consideration will be given for a candidate’s education and audit experience. Full-time employees are eligible for our benefits package which includes enrollment in the state’s Defined Contribution Plan, and a 457 Plan, each liberally matched by the state. In addition, we offer generous benefit allowances, longevity bonuses, per diem for overnight travel, and more. Visit our Employee Benefits link under the Employment Opportunities section on our webpage.
Because we know that sometimes the most valuable benefits are the least tangible ones, we also offer a wide range of non-financial advantages such as flexible work hours, ample paid vacation and sick leave, and eleven annual state holidays. Most of our team members work ten-hour days only four days a week, leaving them with three-day weekends to enjoy with friends or family. Transportation is provided or reimbursed for out-of-town travel and fuel and hotel expenses are provided.
What We’re Looking For
As a team member you will utilize your accounting and auditing skills to audit county governments and public entities, at the following county courthouses: Pontotoc, Seminole, Hughes, Coal, Atoka, Bryan, Choctaw, Pushmataha, Pittsburg, Latimer, Haskell, McIntosh, Muskogee, Sequoyah, LeFlore, and McCurtain. Extensive in-state travel may be required for a majority of audits; therefore, flexibility with travel and overnight arrangements is essential for this position. A bachelor’s degree in accounting or other business-related field, or a minimum of two years’ experience in an accounting and/or audit environment is necessary. We are interested in candidates who have knowledge of generally accepted accounting principles, generally accepted auditing standards, and Government Auditing Standards and who possess strong verbal and written communication skills, the ability and desire to work as part of a team, and proficiency in Excel and Word.
