Responsibilities and skills in controlling

The position of controller is one of the key roles in any organization, regardless of its size or industry. Controllers are responsible for financial planning, analysis and control and play a critical role in ensuring the financial health and long-term success of an organization.

Typical tasks of a controller include:

  • Financial planning and analysis: preparing budgets, cash flow forecasts and financial reports to monitor and analyze the company's financial performance.
  • Cost management: identifying potential savings, monitoring costs and implementing cost efficiency measures.
  • Financial reporting: Preparation of annual financial statements, financial reports and other relevant documents for internal and external stakeholders.
  • Risk management: Identifying and assessing financial risks and developing strategies to minimize risks.
  • Compliance: Ensuring compliance with legal regulations and guidelines as well as internal company policies.

Why is it often a challenge to find a qualified controller?‍

Finding a qualified controller can be a challenge, as this position requires a unique combination of technical expertise, analytical skills and soft skills. Here are some reasons why it can be hard to find the right controller:

  • Specialized knowledge: Controllers must have in-depth knowledge in areas such as financial accounting, cost accounting, financial analysis and compliance, which requires specialized expertise.
  • Analytical skills: Controllers must be able to understand, analyze and interpret complex financial data in order to make informed business decisions and minimize financial risks.
  • Soft skills: In addition to technical expertise, controllers also need excellent communication, teamwork and leadership skills, as they often have to work with different departments and stakeholders and communicate complex financial information in an understandable way.
  • Competitive search: The demand for qualified controllers is high, especially in industries such as financial services, consulting and manufacturing, making the search for suitable candidates even more challenging.
