Financial Controller

At a glance

The Financial Controller is positioned in the Finance department and reports to the Chief Financial Officer (‘CFO’).


The finance department is responsible for managing financial risks, financial reporting, generating information to support decision making (MI), planning and analysing business trends as well as the accounts payable/receivable process including managing vendor payments. Financial planning and analysis as well as financial reporting to fulfil both internal management and on-going external regulatory requirements are the defining features of the Finance department.


The products delivered by the Finance department to the organisation, clients and key stakeholders are financial reporting and analysis, regulatory reporting to the PRA/FCA, Bank of England statistical reporting, management information, including budgeting and forecasting, accounting operations, including accounts payable, foreign exchange hedging, tax accounting and tax risk management.


The UK Finance department undertakes a complex role, in particular due to regulatory requirements. It is responsible for implementation and on-going oversight of sound financial and operational controls and governance. There is a strong element of dependency on the ABN AMRO group functions in terms of governance, systems and controls and therefore the required level of co-ordination and communication with Head Office as well as the combination of monthly business as usual and project tasks, requires on going focus and attention to detail.

The CFO will look to this role to help drive forward the improvement to budgeting, forecasting and rebilling processes.


The Financial Controller has the following responsibilities:


•    Short- and medium-term budgeting of revenues, costs and balance sheet, consolidation and analysis of strategic financial plans, and preparation of performance MI against strategic objectives, including forecasting business performance.

This also comprises making sure that relevant controls are in place to mitigate risks and that these controls are effective and commensurate to the risks involved

•    Mitigating key person risk in relation to all of the above with particular focus on budgeting and rebilling, including provision of training to other team members on the process.
