The finance manager’s role has two key duties: advising upper management and managing finance operations. Depending on the company, they may also be involved in other tasks like financial planning and overseeing investments. They need substantial skills in data analysis, reporting and budgeting as well as knowledge of day-to-day financial operations. Candidates will typically have a degree in finance, accounting or economics. Professional certification is a good way to select those who have more experience and knowledge. Industry-specific experience as a financial manager or finance officer may be very useful due to many specialized regulations or procedures (e.g. tax laws). A couple of technical questions may be useful to assess the depth of their expertise.
