THE ‘ARITHMOPHOBIA’ ROLE – ($35,000 – $42,000)


Believe it or not … there’s a term for people who have an irrational fear of numbers.
It’s called ‘arithmophobia’!

We’ve all heard of superstitions that exist with the number 13 (unlucky) or say … 666 (the sign of the devil).

However … true ‘arithmophobics’ fear all kinds of numbers … especially complex math equations.

So … what does this have to do with Danielle’s latest role?  Nothing really.
That said … if you’re an ‘arithmophobic’ this is definitely not the role for you.


Our client is one of the leading accounting firms in Hamilton.
Truth is … they’re busier than a house on fire … and they need an Accounting Technician (or 2 or 3) to help them manage their work load.

The working environment is fantastic.
You’ll be busy … but you’ll learn a lot … and have opportunity to grow within the firm.
Bottom line … they take care of the employees who take care of them.
Your effort will absolutely not go unnoticed!
