Finance Manager Cover Letter Example for Job Applications
« on: February 14, 2014, 10:29:07 AM »

Writing a cover letter for the job role of a Finance Manager.

If you are looking for a career as a Finance a Manager you will have over 5 years experience of working in a Finance environment. Usually you will be educated to degree level and will have worked in an Accounts department and have a generalist background.

As a finance manager you will be responsible for company budgets and implementing them to each department and controlling the expenditure of the company. This is a senior role within a business and one with a great level of responsibility.

The salary level you can expect as a Finance Manager starts from £35,000 + per annum. This is of course dependent on the size of company and location of the business as this is the low end salary level for this role.

You can expect to be responsible for duties such as:
  • Deciding company budgets for each department and ensuring that you give the department managers training on how to control their budgets and what they should be spending etc as guidelines
  • Managing company expenditure and asking questions on over expenditure before any issues arise
  • Raising purchase order numbers and ensuring that all departments agreeing amounts get a valid purchase order
  • Overseeing payroll for the business
  • Agreeing new salary levels for employees
  • Overseeing and controlling the accounts department and understanding everything within the department.
A finance manager is a very senior role and one with huge responsibility. You will report to the Directors of the business and need to be able to report to them on company expenditure, profits and loss.

You will be an exceptional mathematical person to do this role well as you will be required to analyse and interpret financial information and be able to discuss this with other parties with not as much financial knowledge as yourself.
