Finance for Non-Financial Managers [Virtual Learning]

Working for a public body goes hand in hand with finding a balance between creating public values and managing the bottom line. Comprehensive financial management is fundamentally imperative to sustain its long-term health, particularly for those that work in public management roles.

For senior managers and those that work in leadership roles, paying attention to detail when reading financial reports accurately, asking the correct questions of their financial officers and making strategic decisions based on an understanding of business principles is essential.  

Finance for Non-Financial Managers is a trending online course within our Financial Management & Commercial Skills series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
