Job Description

EMPOWER Broadband is looking to hire an Accountant who will work at MEC Headquarters in Chase City, VA. Are you a talented and hardworking accounting professional who is eager to give back to your community? As much as you love a balanced ledger, do you also have a creative, "think-out-of-the-box" side? If so, please read on!


EMPOWER Broadband is a wholly-owned telecommunications subsidiary of Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC). MEC has deployed a fiber communications system that facilitates EMPOWER Broadband's offering of fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) voice and internet services to rural residents across Southside Virginia. In addition to its fast growing rank of ultra-high-speed fiber broadband subscribers, EMPOWER Broadband continues to offer traditional phone services and internet over Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) in some areas. In addition to providing its subscribers with ultra-high-speed internet access and voice services, EMPOWER Broadband strives to be an excellent corporate citizen that works diligently to enhance the quality of life in the communities it serves.

We look for talented associates who not only meet the job requirements of the position but those who are also willing and eager to give back to their community. At EMPOWER, you are not just an employee, you are part of a family and as such, you will receive the resources, education, and training to be the best in your field. Plus, we offer competitive compensation and excellent benefits.


As an Accountant, you provide support and assistance to the Finance and Accounting Department in paying vendors and compiling accounts payable information by administering effective and efficient processes, completing reports and maintaining all records. You will assist in planning, coordinating, and controlling the functions of accounting services in order to ensure that EMPOWER financial records are kept in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). You are essential in safeguarding EMPOWER's assets as you assist in internal auditing.

Your diligence and attention to detail are invaluable to our success. Though much of your time is spent independently indulging your love of numbers, you also get to use your interpersonal skills on a regular basis. You collaborate regularly with the other Finance and Accounting team members, assist in developing more efficient procedures and use of resources, and respond to inquiries about project budgets and invoicing. Your accounting and finance knowledge plays a critical role in the development of the processes, procedures, and policies that ensure that we are able to continue serving our members in the exceptional way that we always have.


  • Bachelor's degree in accounting, finance, or a related field
  • 3 years of experience in accounting
  • Knowledge of cost accounting principles
  • Must satisfactorily pass pre-employment and random drug/alcohol screenings, participate in a drug-free workplace and have quality work ethic and safety record.

Are you able to effectively prioritize tasks and work independently under tight deadlines? Do you have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal? Are you also a team player? Is accuracy a high priority for you? If so, you just might be perfect for this Accountant position!


We understand your time is valuable and that is why we have a very quick and easy application process. If you feel that you would be right for this job, review the full position description and fill out our initial 3-minute, mobile-friendly application, so that we can review your information. We look forward to meeting you!
