CFO Jobs

CFO jobs are responsible for overseeing financial activity for companies and organizations, and for setting financial policies and strategies to maximize profitability while eliminating sources of waste, fraud, and inefficiency.  Duties of a chief financial officer also typically include coordinating the compiling and distribution of financial documents, ensuring tax compliance, supervising accounting staff and other finance professionals, and coordinating the analysis and presentation of financial data and predictions to assist company management in determining optimal business strategies.  CFO jobs generally require at least a master’s degree in a finance-related discipline from an accredited college or university.  Since CFO jobs are usually the top-ranking finance leadership position in a company or agency, these jobs typically also require at least ten years of experience in a high-level accounting or finance role.  The tasks of initiating business process improvements and using market forecasts generated from financial records to proactively change business strategies when appropriate, which are also important aspects of CFO jobs, make previous experience in executive management positions beneficial as well.

People in CFO jobs typically work in corporate headquarters and other central offices, in order to expediently communicate with other members of management regarding the financial status of the company.  As a result, most CFO positions are found in larger metropolitan areas.  CFO jobs may also call for travel to branch offices to oversee accounting practices, perform audits, and meet with other finance staff members.
