Digital Accounting Solutions Manager

Location: Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City
Function: Corporate Accounting Services
Role: Manager

Full time

Job Summary

Managers at Dezan Shira & Associates (DSA) are expected to be able to handle a wide range of coordination and communication between DSA clients, partners, and our internal team members. While the core of the job focuses on accounting, and related client work, the role involves far more than simply overseeing a team of subordinates to complete the monthly accounting process.

This position will be managing client relationships on a more analytical and strategic level. They will be identifying problems and opportunities for clients, and working closely with other teams (sales, tax, payroll, legal, etc.) to provide various solutions. It is required to understand the business of DSA clients and communicate with their management overseas as well as their local Vietnam team.

Strong accounting and tax knowledge is a prerequisite for this role, but an enthusiasm to learn about non-accounting aspects of DSA’s operations is equally important. A strong interest/background in IT is considered key to this position, since other than other local DSA Corporate Accounting Services managers in Vietnam (Hanoi, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City), this role specifically focuses on the aspect of digitization of our accounting services. This will be an overarching role on the national level within the firm, to handle clients that have specific IT/ERP/SaaS demands when it comes to accounting software, but also to proactively find IT solutions for existing clients together with our IT team 

This role also requires training the accounting services staff at DSA Vietnam on new digital solutions and implementing them internally to increase our efficiency, and capabilities, as well as to reduce the human margin of error in this rapidly changing industry.
