As a Finance & Risk data analyst you are responsible in the External Reporting & Management Accounting department for providing reliable financial information for the internal organization. Figures are analyzed from different sources and processed in dashboards. Your work also forms the foundation on which senior management makes decisions.
The requirements of supervisors and the internal organization are changing rapidly. This means that the finance function is also in transition. Where the emphasis was traditionally placed on producing reports, it slowly shifts to the directing of data streams and the monitoring of data quality.
Within a reporting team you collect data from different sources and perform checks and data validations. If you find inconsistencies or errors, you return to the supplying party to find a solution. Once the data is complete and correct, you prepare the financial reports about an entity. Then you examine the largest shifts in the figures. On the one hand, you determine whether these are right and right, on the other hand you are looking for an explanation for this. After delivery of the figures, the emphasis is on other activities, such as participation in projects, making process descriptions and implementing process improvements.
The way in which you make a contribution to the changes, you have a big part in your own hands. You have the right skills, such as knowledge of financial products and affinity with IT. But also soft skills, for example persuasiveness, customer orientation and a proactive attitude are of great importance to be able to do your work well.
