A career in financial controlling?

Financial control is the weekly, monthly and year end production of financial statements and regulatory reports. The analysis of financial reporting information and commentary on variances gives you the opportunity to become involved in a variety of developmental, analytical and project driven exercises.

The role is vital to control, evaluate and support the continued growth of the business. Roles evolve constantly to remain aligned with the fast moving pace of the business and all reporting and trading activities are monitored and regulated by official governing bodies.

There are a variety of roles available under the umbrella of financial control, incorporating all of a bank’s activities. As a result, newly qualified accountants can gain exposure to a wide spectrum of functions across the organisation. Financial control also provides a strong understanding of the interactive nature of modern banking systems, allowing the development of strong and high profile links with members of senior management.

Career progression

Within a financial control role you can gain a broad overview of a business, providing achievable, natural progression to roles both within and outside of the department, for example in business analysis, product control, risk management, systems development and trade support.
