Hybrid – Liquor Control Accountant/Examiner 3 (20061473)

About Us:

The Mission of the Ohio Department of Commerce is promoting prosperity by protecting what matters most

The Division of Liquor Control supports Ohio’s economy by providing funding for job creation and business development through the proceeds from Ohio’s liquor industry. The division ensures Ohioans have access to the products they want by overseeing the manufacture, distribution and sale of all alcoholic beverages, selling spirituous liquor through contract liquor agencies and registering products for sale. The division promotes the responsible consumption of alcohol by educating the public, and
ensuring that businesses are informed and trained on their responsibilities not to sell to underage or intoxicated individuals.

As the state’s chief regulator, the Department of Commerce impacts Ohioans every day. We are motivated by our mission to promote prosperity for businesses and licensees by protecting what matters most to the residents of our state. We ensure compliance through proactive outreach, education, and customer-focused service.

Commerce is comprised of seven operating divisions and two standalone programs that span a variety of industries including real estate, liquor, banking, securities, firefighting, construction and skilled trades, and medical marijuana. Through exceptional compliance practices and oversight, Commerce has a direct role in protecting Ohioans.
