Job description


WJLA-TV is seeking a Staff Accountant to join our team!  Do you enjoy being the go-to for business operations? Regardless if it is related to financial forecasting or employee concerns? Are you skilled when it comes to wearing multiple hats and tackling a variety of tasks? We think that’s great! In fact, that is what we value most about you - we are looking for someone who is able to transition to and from month’s end to our biweekly payroll process - all before those deadlines! If you’re up for the challenge, then the Staff Accountant position might be the position for you!




While no day is the same, a day in the life of an Accountant might look like this:



  • Assist leadership with routine financial reporting

  • Leverage data to drive results and business decisions

  • Complete general accounting functions on behalf of the location/station

  • Be the subject matter expert and location/station resource for accounting matters: like Sarbanes-Oxley, Company ‘best practices,’ and GAAP reporting guidelines.

  • Process (& occasionally problem-solve) the teams’ biweekly payroll

  • Advise and strategize with team leaders at the location/station to ensure everyone is within budget

  • Provide support as requested by the location/station’s Business Manager




We think it would be great if your background looked something like this:



  • Bachelor’s degree in related field(s) - e.g., accounting, finance, economics, and/or Business

  • On the job experience with HR tasks including payroll and/or General Ledger (GL), or Financial, or Accounting related duties

  • Advanced in excel - i.e., you consider yourself fluent in VLOOKUP, functions, conditional formatting, pivot tables/charts, formulas, and you might even dabble with VBA & Macros

  • Previous experience working with a range of experience levels (i.e., you might have worked across a few departments to complete a project, or two…)

  • Previous experience in a role charged with the responsibility of accounting, payroll, personnel & employment matters, and

  • Past experience that demonstrates your understanding of the importance of confidentiality in accounting and HR related matters

  • Experience with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems (e.g., Oracle, SAP)

  • Experience in the broadcast industry is a plus!
