what i do on a fairly regular basis on a high level is manage budget and spend
approving purchase requisitions and tracking purchase orders
monthly accruals and reconciliation against actuals in our accounting files
budgeting for the upcoming year
monthly reporting (open PO's, FTE's, etc.)
some basic, ad-hoc stuff as it comes up
does this sound about right? a lot of the job is extremely manual. inputting accruals and tracking the budget fully in anspreadsheet.
there isn't much "interesting" analysis as far as what types of initiatives would benefit the company. it's more of a reporting and tracking role.
i like the job, but i can envision this getting tedious after too long.
