The Financial Reporting Initiative (FRI) Program is a global Pfizer initiative tasked with the primary objective of delivering segmented balance sheet results in order to support the external reporting disclosures associated with Pfizer's business units: Pfizer Essential Health and Pfizer Innovative Health, comprised of the legacy Global Innovative Pharma (GIP), Global Vaccines, Oncology and Consumer businesses. The initiative also generates the financial information necessary to support strategic decision making by segmenting and collecting financial statement data for the income statement and cash flow statement. The FRI Program is transitioning from a project to a Center of Excellence (CoE) and this role will be based in the CoE.
The FRI CoE Experienced Staff Accountant will have responsibility for supporting selected areas within the FRI COE Analytics and Reporting Team, which is responsible for Financial Reporting Initiative reporting and analysis globally.
In order to support the global segmentation process, the FRI CoE Experienced Staff will collaborate cross-functionally within GFS and others, as necessary, to drive the timely creation of program deliverables, achieve program objectives, and ensure FRI responsibilities are fulfilled.
