Careers at Topel Forman 

This isn’t your average tax or audit job. At Topel Forman, we believe that everyone should be able to create their own path. With 11 partners and around 90 professional staff, our team is full of high-level talent and expertise that you’d expect from a larger firm, but with a small, boutique firm’s accessibility and collaboration.

What makes Topel Forman different from other accounting firms?

No one person is the same – that goes for our career journeys, too. At Topel Forman, we encourage our teammates to create their own path, and we foster professional growth according to each person’s unique interests.

Rather than operating solely within your department, you can expect to work directly with clients, senior-level management, and partners with knowledge of various disciplines. A proactive, hands-on approach to our clients allows you to grow in your expertise and advance your career. Flexible hours and a family-oriented culture promote the balance between professional development and enjoyable family life.
