Job Description: 

The City of Alexandria's Finance Department is looking for a detail oriented, hands-on, and collaborative Financial Reporting Manager to join our team. As a member of the Accounting Division, the Financial Reporting Manager directly supervises and manages our financial reporting team which is responsible for the accurate preparation of the City's comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR), in addition to other critical financial reporting tasks and deliverables. This position partners with the Comptroller to ensure all of the Accounting Division's deliverables are of high quality. A significant aspect of this work involves use of the City's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, Munis. In general, the Financial Reporting Manager is an expert in the accounting field who takes ownership of and advocates for the City's ability to produce accurate and complete financial reports in a timely matter.

The Financial Reporting Manager leads a team of four professional accountants with responsibility for the accurate and timely production of the City's CAFR, capital assets, year-end closings, grant and bond accounting, and other regulatory and financial reporting tasks, as well as the successful research and resolution of all discrepancies. This position ensures that the financial reporting team continuously improves their expertise through training and practice. Additionally, the Financial Reporting Manager, along with the Comptroller, is the primary point of contact for the City's annual audits. The Financial Reporting Manager has considerable latitude for independent judgment under the general supervision of the Comptroller. The day-to-day work of the Financial Reporting Manager is generally self-directed and determined by the City's overall financial reporting needs.
