Due to growth in its audit and tax practices, Chicago-based Crowe Horwath LLP (FY14 net revenue of $670.2 million) plans to hire 100 people in South Bend, Ind., in the next year. These hourly positions will be a mix of full- and part-time jobs.
“We’ve already hired 40 people this year, with plans to increase that number to 60 by the end of 2014 and 100 by the end of 2015,” says Gary Fox, South Bend OMP. “These positions are for those interested in providing client support for our audit and tax groups, but are looking for a more flexible arrangement, whether they are college or graduate students, parents of school-aged children or others looking for an adjustable schedule in South Bend.”
Fox explained that the roles and responsibilities for each position are tailored to the individual’s skill level and that internal training will teach new hires the additional skills that are necessary. “As a firm that started in South Bend as Crowe Chizek, and is now a national firm that is globally branded, we’re glad to be bringing more jobs to the area,” he added.
