Production Accounting Clerk Workshop

What is a Production Accountant Clerk?

A Production Accounting Clerk supports each member of a Production Accounting team with clerical tasks, such as filing, copying, scanning, and data entry. The department processes large volumes of important and confidential paperwork; therefore the Clerk’s role is vital in keeping this paperwork organized and circulating. An Accounting Clerk should be able to multi-task; work well under pressure; be detail-oriented; and have proficiency in math and preparation of spreadsheets. Clerks should also have a reliable vehicle to use for set runs and other duties.
