Payroll Accountant/Assistant Accountant needed for reality show (Chicago Locals)

Seeking Payroll Accountant/Assistant Accountant

CHICAGO LOCALS ONLY: Looking for a great assistant accountant to help out with non-union payroll on a (relatively) big-budget reality show shooting in Chicago. Gig would only be about 3-4 weeks, so it would be perfect for anyone on hiatus or in-between shows.

Requirements:
-Must have previous non-union payroll experience and have worked w/Cast & Crew payroll before…. be able to break down start paperwork and know what is missing, etc.
-Previous experience with tax incentives and free field coding and reviewing Cast & Crew (BTL production Services) payroll edits for accuracy.
-Previous experience with large volumes of payroll. We will need to bust out quite a lot of background extras through payroll, but the time cards will be very simplistic, so experience on large shows a bonus.
-Experience entering A/P & auditing and entering petty cash envelopes via PSL.
-Must be a self-starter and independent worker with a GREAT attitude and strong attention-to-detail, but also someone who knows how to have fun at work.

Again, you MUST be a Chicago local with a valid IL drivers license (tax credit requirement) and be available to work beginning on or around 7/6/2015.

Thank you!
