About the Job

Do you like numbers?  Does a checkbook out of balance drive you nuts?   Are you passionate about serving Vermonters and Vermont? Then this position just might be for you! The Vermont Department of Labor is looking for a Financial Manager II to oversee the Cashier’s Office within the Unemployment Insurance (UI) division.

This is a managerial level position within the Department’s Business Office (serving the UI division) and is responsible for overseeing all the UI Cashier’s Office fiscal operations for the Department.  This position supervises two professional and technical accounting positions. The major duties include overseeing and managing the team who is responsible for the accounting of the UI Claimant benefits and Employer tax accounts. The Cashier’s Office is responsible for overseeing payments coming in from employers and for reconciling payments going out to Unemployment Insurance claimants. This operation is highly regulated by the federal government and this position is responsible for daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly complex federal reporting. This is the office that actually makes the payments to UI claimants, so the pressure is on.  But if you truly want to feel good about the work that you are doing, work that helps people who are potentially having some of the worst times for their lives, then this job is very rewarding.

The Financial Manager II must have considerable knowledge of:

-Accounting principles and practices
