Is it necessary to to use "'s'" in the following sentence?

Although she didn't have appropriate qualifications, she decided to apply for an accountant('s) position.

    It is not necessary, especially when it has been advertised as "an Accountant position".
    However, in speech I would prefer to say "to apply for a job as an accountant".
