CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) is not your typical public accounting firm! As a professional services firm, we have dynamic career opportunities in audit and tax, but we also offer customized accounting support for our clients on an interim and project basis. This is called our Consulting and Accounting Solutions Team (CAST). If flexibility, variety, entrepreneurism, and increasing your marketplace value is important to you... Keep on reading!

CAST delivers unique custom accounting solutions when and where it's needed. We provide flexibility without sacrificing quality. Our clients, both public and private businesses, say they appreciate how we roll up our sleeves and work alongside them, using our years of experience for their benefit. Common roles we fill are CFO, Controller, Accounting Manager, Internal Auditor, VP Finance, or Financial Reporting Manager to name a few.

We offer opportunities for traditionally qualified CPAs to utilize their talents in non-traditional ways in a role we call our Engagement Director. Perhaps you're a former CFO, a retired Auditor, or maybe you are just looking for more freedom and flexibility... Our Engagement Directors typically have 10-30 years of accounting, audit, technology and financial leadership experience and really enjoy servicing clients' needs with a hands on approach. With the freedom to pick and choose your engagements, you allow yourself the ability to enjoy your career AND your life.

At CLA CAST, you can build the career YOU want.
