Job Description for Financial Accountant

Financial accountability is pivotal to maintaining a healthy business, and financial accountants conduct a number of functions to ensure this is possible. They manage payroll, taxes, income, spending, and educating their employer on financial information. Work days for financial accountants can be a bit longer than a standard 9-to-5 job, because of strict deadlines on all projects that financial accountants are given. Generally, financial accountants do not need to work directly with employees; if they discover discrepancies with posted reports, they inform management.

Financial accountants need a strong background in math and must be ready to examine financial figures on a daily basis. An associate's or bachelor’s degree in accounting is needed for this job, as is knowledge of statistics, arithmetic, and algebra. The ability to use computers and accounting software programs is important, and financial accountants must be able to use computers to perform mathematical computations and create presentations. Different employers will use different accounting software, so it is good for financial accountants to be able to adapt quickly to new programs.
