Numeris Consulting is your Recruiter for Experts in Controlling

As a leading HR company specialising in the recruitment of executives and experts in finance and real estate, our expertise extends to various areas of financial management, including Controlling. In the dynamic landscape of business, controlling plays a pivotal role. This critical function underpins strategic decision-making, optimises operational efficiency, and safeguards the financial health of an organisation. At Numeris Consulting, we are deeply cognisant of the importance of controlling and have honed our expertise to match its multidimensional demands.

What is Controlling?

Controlling, in a business context, is an essential component of management that involves overseeing various operational aspects. This includes budgeting, financial analysis, risk management, and strategic planning, to name a few. It focuses on monitoring organisational performance against strategic goals, with an overarching aim to ensure that an organisation's objectives are met in the most effective and efficient manner. In the realm of real estate, controlling is particularly pivotal as it provides the structure and clarity needed to manage complex projects and portfolios effectively.

The Importance and Evolution of Controlling

In the contemporary business landscape, controlling is of paramount importance. It provides a systematic approach to monitor and adjust an organisation's activities, thereby ensuring alignment with strategic objectives.'
Controlling aids in identifying potential deviations from set plans and enables timely corrective actions, thereby optimising performance. It also plays a crucial role in risk management by identifying potential hazards and implementing mitigation strategies. Furthermore, controlling ensures compliance with regulatory requirements and fosters transparency in financial reporting, thereby strengthening stakeholder confidence.

In an era marked by rapid technological advancements, controlling has evolved to incorporate data analytics and digital tools. These enable controllers to generate actionable insights, streamline processes, and enhance decision-making.
Modern controllers are no longer confined to traditional tasks of financial reporting and compliance. They are now seen as strategic partners, contributing to the company's direction and growth. They are expected to leverage advanced analytics and digital tools to generate actionable insights, streamline processes, and enhance decision-making.

Current Trends and Developments in Controlling

In keeping with the fast-paced business environment, controlling has embraced several new trends and developments.

Digitalisation: The digital transformation has significantly impacted controlling. Advanced analytics, machine learning, and AI have been incorporated into controlling functions to provide more accurate forecasting, real-time reporting, and insightful data analysis. Controllers are now expected to be adept at using these tools to enhance financial management and strategic planning.

Risk Management: As business operations become more complex, controlling plays an increasingly critical role in risk management. Controllers are now central to identifying potential risks, analysing their impact, and formulating mitigation strategies. They also ensure compliance with ever-changing regulatory requirements.

Sustainability: With the growing emphasis on corporate social responsibility, controllers are playing a pivotal role in driving sustainable business practices. They are instrumental in developing and monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) related to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors.

Strategic Partnership: The role of controllers has evolved from being purely operational to becoming strategic business partners. They are involved in decision-making processes, providing financial insights and forecasts that guide business strategies.
