This is the third level of the financial analysis classification hierarchy. Employees at this level solve more complex problems, in financial areas of specialization, with moderate guidance and direction. Employees are building their knowledge of the organization, processes and customers. Incumbents are expected to develop advanced skills and the ability to work with limited guidance and direction from others. In this role, frequent professional collaboration is required with functional managers with varying levels of financial acumen.
