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.

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.
