The primary responsibilities of the position require the employee to conduct analysis of the company’s financial statements and their components, as well as daily business operations and processes.

The candidate must be highly proficient in Excel and other Microsoft applications.  The position entails both regular financial analysis reporting duties (20-30% of the time) and ad hoc analysis requiring strong critical thinking capabilities (70-80% of the time).  The candidate’s problem solving ability, flexibility, and adaptability are essential.  The position is a great opportunity to work in a fast paced environment and develop professionally as it involves critical tasks and exposure to key and executive management.


The financial analyst will work directly with all of Westlake’s departments to control costs, forecast income, and improve key processes.  Innovation and independent thought will be highly valued. 

Typical reporting duties do exist, including monthly forecasting, operating expense review, profitability reports and other regular duties.  However, the role involves a high volume of ad hoc or as needed analysis to address the concerns and needs of each department and of upper management.  These range from making recommendations on process improvements, to ascertaining profitability of a potential business move, to conducting valuation analysis, among other projects.  Time management, follow up, business sense, professionalism, and an ability to think simultaneously about relevant conceptual and empirical factors will ensure success in this role.  A minimum of 1-3 years in financial planning and analysis is required.
