Careers

At Wright Ford Young & Co., we measure our success by the high-quality employees we hire and retain. Thanks to these hard-working and dedicated employees, our practice has flourished into one of the largest CPA firms based in Orange County.

Because we believe loyalty breeds loyalty, we strive to provide our employees with a career and not just a job. Our core purpose says it all:

“We are a CPA firm that provides an atmosphere where people can flourish in their careers, while at the same time, maintain meaningful relationships with God, their spouses, families, and friends.”

Our core purpose guides us to revolutionize the way we operate by breaking conventional industry practices. One of those innovative practices involves constant exploration of ways to enhance our employees’ lives. When it comes to providing our employees with a meaningful work/life balance, our reputation in the marketplace is second to none.

Why you should consider us

Wright Ford Young & Co. was named among Orange County’s “Best Places to Work” by the Orange County Business Journal in the publication’s 2015 annual list (click here). We are a local powerhouse—big, yet smaller than the national firms—which gives us the agility and market position to offer these great opportunities to our employees:

  • Grow faster and achieve key career goals in less time than at other firms.
  • Work with multiple clients on a variety of interesting projects, rather than work inside a narrow niche.
  • Be part of a team that listens to you and is eager to implement your fresh ideas. Work hand in hand with all levels of professionals, from partners to staff, even if you’re just starting out.
  • Use the latest technology to improve your auditing, tax, and organizational skills.

We are a learning organization

At Wright Ford Young & Co., we are proud to be a “learning organization,” which means we embrace productive change and encourage creative thinking from all our team members. Our teams constantly work to produce even more extraordinary results for our clients. To that end, we heavily invest in our employees’ ongoing professional development to help them earn degrees and certifications, improve their leadership skills, or become experts in new technology. Most importantly, we create an environment where learning from each other, from our clients, and from our peers is encouraged and valued.

We like to have fun
