Diverse Opportunities...Global Impact...SMSG Finance
The controller role is a key business partner to one or many Microsoft Businesses and their team, providing a variety of FP&A (Financial Planning and Analysis) services, support and leadership.
The successful Controller is able to call upon strong finance and business skills as well as a deep understanding of the business to provide in depth analysis of BG performance, ensuring clear communication of challenges and opportunities to support in delivering against the short-term revenue and scorecard targets as well as the longer term growth and competitive agenda. They must be able to stay a part of finance but also understand the business partner's perspectives.
They will be able to build strong, trusted relationships with all key stakeholders to ensure the Business Group delivers on its finance and business accountabilities. This role requires strong communication and influence skills as they will need to be able to communicate other's actionable accountabilities.
Controllers partner heavily with the wider finance team, sales excellence and business groups to effectively and efficiently manage all revenue planning processes for the BG and/or subsidiary, including quarterly forecasts, annual budgets and mid-year reviews.
Controls & Compliance
Ensure that any new initiatives or business solutions are implemented with appropriate risk control mechanisms in place.
The fact is, there's never been a better time for finance pros to do challenging work at Microsoft. Our traditional businesses are looking to build on top of a huge base business, and our newer products and services are still looking for the “profit zone”. Join us and you can play an integral part in the story that has yet to be written about our ever-evolving business.
