In order to keep things running smoothly every company needs a group of individuals who keep its financial performance ticking along. Enter the financial manager, a senior position that can be found in the accounting, auditing and financial planning departments of prominent companies across the country.
How to qualify: The role of a financial manager can vary widely, depending on whether you end up in accounting, auditing, financial planning or risk analysis (to name just a few departments that require financial managers). An educational background in business, finance or economics is essential, but the paths towards becoming a financial manager can be quite diverse, according to the experience of Michelle Mallette, the director of special projects and alternative asset valuations at Manulife Financial. The previous range of accounting certifications in Canada (CAs, CMAs, CGAs) have recently been unified into the Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, so that will be the standard going forward; an MBA could pay dividends as an additional investment.
Money: Canadian government data shows that the vast majority (nearly 70%) of financial managers make over $50,000 per year. According to a 2013 survey by staffing firm Robert Half International, accountants in a managerial role at large companies in Canada can make between $77,000 and $101,500 per year. Auditors in the financial services industry, meanwhile, reported salaries of up to $102,000, while chief risk officers can make up to $190,000 per year.
