List of finance directors FAQ

Traditionally sitting on the board of directors, a financial director is the overall head of a company’s finance department.

They responsible for all financial-related aspects within a business including forecasting, budgeting, and compliance.

They are often tasked with bringing their experience to spearhead change within UK companies focused on things like:

  • potential profit improvement,
  • introducing more efficient business & management processes,
  • delivering company performance updates regularly to the board,
  • identifying areas where money could be saved and reporting on strategies to make those savings, and
  • general growth planning.

The job title “finance director” is more likely to be heard in UK companies – the job title “CFO” (chief financial officer) is more likely to be heard in North American companies.

Although there is a degree of interchangability between the job titles, CFO is more often offered to the head of a finance department or team within a division, subsidiary or territory.

In many companies, there may be more than one chief financial offers representing different areas of the business who are answerable to the ovaerall financial director.
