FINANCIAL PLANNING & ANALYST MANAGER [ ACA / ACCA / CIMA/ PASIR GUDANG ]
Job Requirement for Manager FP&A
We require someone who uses financial analysis to facilitate change by working closely with, or providing a service to, a number of different departments.
They should provide targeted strategic insights across every department of a business. They base these insights on analysis of operational performance, industry dynamics, macro-economic trends and the competitor landscape.
What should a Manager FP&A do?
The responsibilities include:
· Improving the impact, and understanding, of financial reporting on business performance
· Providing analysis and delivering insight that links financial reports to business strategies
· Providing effective commercial procedures, or initiating change, to ensure key operational, commercial and financial targets are delivered
· Building partnerships and maintaining strong relationships with all senior managers and their teams
What skills should the FP&A Manager have?
· Analyze the trends of Key Performance Indicators (KPI), especially relating to financial metrics such as sales, expenditures, and profit margin.
· Monitor KPI, and identify the cause of any unexpected variances
· Develop and continually improve budgeting, financial projections, and operating forecast
· Ad-hoc business performance reporting
· Present the monthly and quarterly financial reports of various units and departments (This might be done by Financial Control currently at BLC)
· Implement a business intelligence tool and dashboard reports
· Develop financial models and analyze them to support strategic initiatives
· Support management team and the Heads of Department with data-driven analysis
The role required a different set of skills to the traditional finance back office function.
The role will require them to be a qualified accountant, either ACA, ACCA or CIMA, but it will also need them to demonstrate specific qualities.
This is very much a strategic role. Information and reporting are just the tip of the iceberg. What really matters is their ability to see the value in the information they provide and to inspire others to make use of it.
It calls for someone who is used to working in a rapidly changing environment and who is comfortable proposing, justifying, initiating and implementing change.
To achieve this, they will need a strong set of ‘soft’ skills, including:
· Relationship building
· Facilitation and conflict resolution
The FP&A Manager needs to be an excellent project manager as well as a creative thinker. This is a role that calls for both a starter and a coordinator.
They must be able to apply their analytical skills beyond the traditional functions of finance and to bring them to bear on a broad range of commercial issues.
These issues must then be effectively brought to life for senior management teams. This is why the ability to listen, interpret, influence, negotiate, inspire and challenge are all vital to the role.
