Diligent bookkeepers ready to give their career a boost in the coffee trade will savour the promotion prospects at this local beverage outlet. Pacific Coffee is hiring an accountant with one to two years' experience to handle a full set of accounts. 'Our ideal candidate must have initiative, a logical and analytical mind and must be willing to work under pressure,' said May Wong, financial controller. A mature and independent nature will put you in good stead with your colleagues in one of Hong Kong's top performing brands. Previous working experience either in a commercial or auditing firm would put your application at the top of the heap, although recent graduates with the right skills and attitude may be considered. Applicants should be university graduates in accountancy or be Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants or Association of Chartered Certified Accountants members. As business is rapidly expanding in China and across the rest of Asia, Pacific Coffee is especially interested in people who have relevant knowledge in mainland tax and accounting issues. Proficiency in English, Cantonese and Putonghua is essential for this position. 'We are expanding very quickly to other countries which presents new opportunities and challenges to the candidate,' Ms Wong said. She added that the time it took to be promoted depended on an individual's capabilities.
