COVID-19 has affected countless industries, including accounting and finance. Fortunately, like many other professionals, accountants and financial professionals have the technology and tools to be able to work remotely. Many professionals can work from home and mostly at full capacity. Many finance jobs were already making the shift to remote work, and this pandemic has only made it clearer that these jobs can be done from home.

Considering the current social distancing requirements, many accounting and finance professionals who are looking for work may consider roles they can do remotely. According to Toronto finance recruiters, here are some interesting remote finance jobs to consider:

1. e-commerce

Many e-commerce based organizations have a dispersed workforce. They have people working from all over the country. The same applies to their accounting team. You’ll need a background in and experience with online business technology and platforms.

2. Bookkeeping and Tax Accounting

Cloud-based accounting technology has enabled bookkeepers and tax accountants to work from virtually anywhere. You can accomplish the same tasks at home as if you were in an office setting. You may need to go into the office or meet with clients in person occasionally.

3. Financial Planner

It’s rather simple for financial planners to base their offices from home. However, you may spend a fair amount of time out of the office meeting with clients. This role you may be able to do for a corporation, bank, or do independently.

4. Financial Writer

If you have a knack for writing and are looking for something a little different, this is a great career worth considering. Use your expert finance knowledge to write about industry news, blog, write web copy, and assist with marketing campaigns. Experienced finance writers are always in demand. It’s a job that can bring you some flexibility and allow you to work with many different finance companies.

There are many software developers that create tools, software, and cloud solutions for accounting and finance companies, the government, and small business. If you have an interest in IT and a finance background, this may be a career path worth considering. You could play a consultant-type role and assist in the development of new accounting and finance tools.
