Chartered public finance accountant?
See how well you suit this job in Career Planner.
A chartered public finance accountant is responsible for ensuring the effective operation of accounting and financial activities within public sector organisations.
While many work for public bodies, such as local and central government and publicly funded organisations, an increasing number are employed in industry or private accountancy firms.
Roles within private sector companies that provide services to the public or not-for-profit sector on a consultative basis tend to focus more on reviewing financial systems and efficiency, than on central accountancy activities.
The role varies widely from general financial administration to management accounting. Whether employed directly within the public sector or working on a consultative basis, chartered public finance accountants ensure that public money is used as effectively and efficiently as possible and that a high level of transparency is maintained.
