If you're a qualified accountant with a strong commercial background, you're likely to be in great demand. Forward-thinking individuals are a key appointment for any growing company that's aiming to stay one step ahead of the competition. It is imperative that you work with both operational managers and finance managers at a senior level in your current role. It's critical that you explain your main responsibilities and the level of the people you work with on a daily basis. If you have worked in a commercial, forward-thinking role, you shouldn't hesitate about applying for this position. If you are hard-working and driven, it's a great way to gain exposure in the company and build links with the senior management team.
