« on: February 28, 2014, 08:17:07 AM »

If you have got an interview coming up for a Management Accountant then you will be a qualified and experienced accountant who manages and looks after substantial company’s accounts on a daily basis.

You will need to have a proven track record in accountancy with good grades when passing your exams and qualifications. You will want to continue to progress your career in accountancy and continue learning and updating your financial skills.

Before going to any interview you need to research the company well and make sure that you dress appropriately to show your interest. This is a client facing role and you will need to wear a suit and be very smart at all times. You will need excellent communication skills and be able to explain technical and financial details to your clients in a simple language.

Management Accountant Interview Questions

  • Your interviewer will be keen to ask questions such as:
  • What is your highest accountancy grade and how long have you been practicing?
  • Why do you want to be a management accountant?
  • Why (name of company)?
  • How would your previous manager describe your communication skills towards your clients?
  • How many clients and of what size have you been used to dealing with?
  • Giving examples of relevant progressions in accounting standards related to the role
  • How would you work under pressure?
  • What do you find difficult?
  • How do you record in Balance sheet?
  • Tell me about a time when you had to think on your feet to make a decision
  • One of the core values of the company is integrity, How would this affect the way you work?
  • Can you give an example of when you created a cost?
  • Why do you want this role?
  • What is the final stage of the product development process?
  • Describe the cases you have worked on recently.
You may be asked more questions about your training and practical experience and more about the clients you have worked with and any feedback you have had.
Make sure that you do not overlook any details of your interview and look at the details that seem most basic such as how you are going to get to the interview and if you are driving get a few options of where you can park to avoid any last minute hiccups. Also ensure that you have all the correct information including a spare CV or application form so that you are not caught out.

Good luck.
