Tawanda Chaunzwa, Director of FP&A
1. How would you describe your role and responsibilities at 4G Clinical to someone who is not familiar with your work?
At 4G Clinical, I head the Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) team that is responsible for driving key global finance functions around forecasting, reporting, and analysis. We work closely with the CFO to ensure consistent monthly, quarterly, and annual communication of financial performance and action plans to all stakeholders. As 4G continues to grow, it is important that as a company we understand the opportunities and risks within our organization and industry. In this regard, my team plays a critical role by providing data-driven insights and analysis on key business metrics such as gross margin by client and study that enable strategic decision-making at different levels within the company. In addition, we partner with the senior leadership team and other business leaders to support the company's budgeting and strategic long-term planning. Given that our primary functions revolve around data from different parts of the organization, we are also heavily involved in developing and improving reporting processes, implementing and optimizing internal systems, and building cross-functional relationships.
2. What do you enjoy most about your job at 4G Clinical?
What I enjoy most about my job is working with my team. Although we are still a young team, our shared passion for learning and driving results motivates and fulfills me, and has resulted in us making a great impact on the organization. My role puts me in a unique position where I am able to help with the development of junior analysts while also learning from senior leadership and other business leaders. The opportunity to work closely with 4G's business leaders and learn how to solve business problems within our healthcare tech space is both stimulating and inspiring. On the other hand, witnessing the growth of junior analysts is immensely rewarding.
3. What do you love most about the culture at 4G Clinical that makes it a great place to work?
4G Clinical fosters a collaborative and caring environment that is conducive to learning and development. As someone with a passion for learning and sharing of ideas, I have greatly enjoyed this aspect of 4G's culture as it has allowed me to grow through learning from some of the most innovative thinkers in the healthcare tech industry. The company's emphasis on shared goals helps bring people together and drive results.
4. What advice would you offer to someone who is considering applying for a job at 4G Clinical?
Just do it like Nike! Jokes aside, 4G Clinical is at a very exciting stage of its development and is poised for greater heights. A lot of work has taken us to this stage and still, a lot more has to be done to reach our goals. For anyone who is passionate about what they do and wants to work somewhere where they will have opportunities to develop their skills, take on interesting projects, and see tangible results of their work I would strongly recommend 4G Clinical. What we do makes a real difference in people's lives and as such anyone looking to be part of an organization that makes a real impact will find it here.
