Controller Jobs

Controllers are responsible for overseeing all financial activity and record-keeping in a business or organization.  People in controller jobs set accounting policies, review auditing procedures, govern the spending, collecting, and borrowing of funds for business processes, and supervise accountants and other financial staff.  Controllers collect reported data in order to generate reports for management and investors, review activity in organizational accounts to ensure accuracy and security, and supervise accountability and redundancy measures in production, purchasing, shipping, and other essential business processes.

Because controller jobs govern many other aspects of financial activity within a company, finance professionals are typically promoted to controller jobs only after many years of experience in accounting, auditing, or bookkeeping.  Extensive knowledge of the industry that the organization is involved in is also typically required for controller jobs, to enable the controller to make informed decisions about business processes and accounting methods.  An advanced degree in finance or accounting, such as an MBA or a doctoral degree in finance, is also frequently necessary for promotion to the level of controller.

People in controller jobs typically work in corporate office environments in accounting divisions.  When working for organizations or companies with multiple office locations, controllers generally work at the central office or headquarters, in order to centrally aggregate records, set policies, and advise managers.  Controller positions are generally available in large-scale businesses and agencies, and may also be found in commercial banks, investment banking firms, and accounting firms.
