Accounting finance manager apprenticeship

Manage and implement accounting, finance systems and processes

As an accounting finance manager, you’ll work in the accounts/finance department of an organisation or a professional accountancy firm. A typical day could include being in an office environment overseeing data entry, control account reconciliations, budgeting and forecasting, trend analysis, monthly, quarterly, yearly reporting, researching and recommending solutions for decision makers. You will work both independently as well as working in or leading teams. You’ll be responsible for contributing to and implementing business plans and strategy. You will conduct regular and detailed analysis of data and provide regular financial and management information as required by internal and external stakeholders. In a larger organisation the accounting and finance manager may report to a finance director (a professional accountant), whereas in a smaller organisation you could be the most senior technical specialist, reporting to a (non-technical) senior manager such as a chief executive.
