With a consulting career, rewarding experiences really add up

Being a Salo consultant gives you freedom and flexibility. You get to pick the kind of work you want to do, where you’ll work, and when you want to do it. Unlike a finance staffing agency or finance and accounting recuiters, our goal isn’t getting you a one-time gig. It’s helping you build a rewarding, meaningful consulting career that leads to the lifestyle you want.

Are you a Salo Expert consultant?

As a consultant there’s no defined job description. Each engagement is unique. Some consultants are former CFOs or directors. Others have specialized areas of expertise—from acquisition strategy and SEC reporting to forecasting or SOX controls.

We look for professionals who are:

  • Problem solvers
  • Subject matter experts
  • Adaptable collaborators
  • Voracious learners
  • Fast relationship-builders

Sample engagements: What the work is like

Here are just a few of the hundreds of diverse roles or projects our consultants take on.

Salo’s controller consultants are key business partners to senior management—whether they’re leading an accounting transformation or maintaining accounting principles, effective internal controls, and best practices. They’re skilled at managing a team of accountants and sharing insights with senior management and the board. In addition, our controller consultants have experience in areas such as:

  • Public accounting
  • Cost accounting
  • Month-end close
  • Consolidations
  • Financial statement preparation
  • Budgeting/forecasting
  • Account reconciliation
  • GAAP review of finances
  • SOX/controls (internal controls)

Our technical accountant consultants have a wide range of skills—from collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data to detecting patterns and problem-solving. They’re well-versed in complex accounting areas and financial reporting, including SEC reporting, purchase accounting, external reporting, and regulatory accounting. They’re also ready to help our clients with technical tasks such as:

  • Preparing GAAP financial statements
  • Reviewing SOX/controls
  • Tying out financials
  • Preparing/reviewing footnotes
  • Coordinating with public accounting firms and other business partners

An interim director of finance from Salo can help you manage several key accounting and reporting functions. They work with the client’s internal and external partners to create seamless operations, discover new opportunities, and build relationships across the organization. Some of the tasks they do included:

  • Leading day-to-day finance operations
  • Supervising a team of financial professionals
  • Overseeing monthly financial reporting
  • Budgeting and forecasting
  • Preparing and reviewing annual operation plans
  • Ensuring that all financial practices, systems, and internal controls are in place

Our CFO consultants have experience leading financial and operational management to ensure the financial health of the client organization. Because CFOs are a key part of the senior management team, every CFO consultant is a confident and knowledgeable partner to the CEO, other executives, and board members.

Additionally, our CFO consultants have experience managing all areas of the financial function, such as:

  • Supervising and training the finance team
  • Establishing/managing financial policies and procedures
  • Budgeting/forecasting
  • Identifying acquisition opportunities
  • Developing long-term strategic financial plans
  • Overseeing financial statements
  • Developing and communicating budgets
  • Ensuring compliance and audit integrity
