For the fiscal manager, it's all about the money. They make sure that an organization's finances are in tip-top shape and that the balance books are in good health. No stray expense, suspicious deduction, or inefficient department can escape the fiscal manager's eagle eye.
A fiscal manager can work for a private business or government agency, wherever there is money to be managed. They make sure that an organization follows its budget, takes care of any accounting tasks, including audits, and manages the payroll. Sometimes, the fiscal manager's job includes cooperating with outside auditors or managing an organization's IPO. Basically, anything that has to do with money eventually comes under their jurisdiction.
Fiscal managers need to know a lot about money and financial procedures to succeed. Often, they get this knowledge from a bachelor's or master's degree and practical experience in the world of accounting.
