Account Clerk (Administrative Assistant)

The Franklin Fire Department is currently seeking a highly motivated individual to fill the role of an Account Clerk. This is a full-time, 40 hour a week position. This position's work week is from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. 

This position works under the direction of the Fire Chief. The Account Clerk performs their daily duties with some degree of independence, exercising sound judgement and professionalism.

These address assignments are made in conjunction with New Hampshire 911 Mapping, other City offices, as well as the United States Postal Service. The ability to verbally communicate and write correspondences’ is an important piece to this process. 

The Account Clerk enters and submits payroll to the city’s Finance Department and is responsible for assisting with new hire paperwork as well as other HR documents. Other duties include, but are not limited to: answering the telephone (emergent/non-emergent), greeting customers at the front door, invoicing, processing bills, managing and entering fire department data, and coordinating administrative calendars.

·        Strong ability in Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, and Adobe with the ability to quickly learn other fire department software.
