Job Description for Finance Manager

Finance managers are responsible for analyzing the financials within an organization. They review debit, credit, cash flow, and expenses along with profits and losses. Every month, finance managers prepare reports for senior management to review. Budgets and costs of departmental operations are discussed. Managers are in charge of leading a team of accountants whose jobs it is to maintain the general ledger on a daily basis. Most financial positions require a degree; managers may work their way up the corporate ladder through the accounting department, but only after they demonstrate their extensive knowledge of cash management. It’s up to the finance manager to show how all costs are allocated throughout the company, providing information on capital and revenue. Finance managers are expected to show any issues of bad debt, including bill collection. They work to identify future capital and maintain cash flow information. It’s up to the manager to coordinate all analyses between the accounts payable, accounts receivable and the collections department. Each department plays an important role in the future of the company, so gathering such information every month is critical to the business. Most finance managers work closely with CEOs, CFOs, and the controller as well the accounting group. Maintaining all of this information can be challenging. That’s why having a good background in time management, advance accounting and good work ethics is so vital. The expression “month end” means that all of the money that’s done throughout the month needs to be booked in order to show what the company does on a monthly and a yearly basis. Accountants work extensive hours to gather this information.
Finance Manager Tasks
  • Identify areas for cost reductions and operational improvements.
  • Provide analyses to Operations team.
  • Prepare informational analyses on current processes, actual performance versus budget and prior year data.
  • Assist Operations team in Monthly Operations Review.
