Posted: 09/16/2020

At CLA we create inspired careers.

We recognize that not everyone wants to grow their career in the same way. That’s why CLA exists to create opportunities. We promise to know you and help you.

This is why we’ve created our Director and Manager career paths! These positions share the same level of seniority, but they allow YOU to choose which path is right for you.

Director — If you love servicing existing client relationships and want to grow your career without the pressure of having to bring new client relationships into the firm, then this is the opportunity for you!

Manager — This is a great path for those who have a passion for servicing clients, want to build a book of business, and want to advance into a principal role. If you love being an industry professional, thrive when identifying business opportunities for clients, and desire to be a principal, then this is the opportunity for you!

CLA is looking to hire a Director or Manager to join our fast growing Tax practice in the Southern Minnesota region, with the option to choose working out of the following CLA office locations: Austin, Mankato, New Ulm, Owatonna or Rochester, MN.
