Financial Control

The financial control function is critical to the overall health of any organisation, as it essentially looks after the bottom line. Profitability, cash flow, credit, investments, expenses, financial policies, transactions, budgeting, and compliance are all areas that fall under the remit of financial control. Without the solid foundations that a dependable control function can provide, businesses would grind to a halt. What roles make up a strong financial control function? From the junior financial controller to the head of finance, the nature of the role can differ greatly depending on which company it’s a part of.

Ultimately, the skillset of a reliable financial controller is often highly transferrable, and due to their essential status within an organisation, they’re generally in high demand. This can make upgrading your financial control function extremely difficult, particularly once you start experiencing substantial growth of any kind. It’s the people that make the company, and if those people aren’t equipped with the right skillsets or attitude, it can be extremely hard to make any real progress. As if things weren’t difficult enough already, the looming recession and the scarcity of talent makes can take their toll on company resources in the blink of an eye.
