Merkle, with 330 employees in the Netherlands, is a brand new combination of 5 data and innovation-driven digital agencies.

To reach our targets and quality promises, we are looking for a Finance Officer!

Are you...

...our positive Operational Finance addition, who is curious about the story behind de numbers. As the tower of strength of the Operational Finance Team (in total 4 FTE) you take care of tight processing of all invoice flows (in- and outcoming), bank transcriptions and other mutations. It’s easy to see you are the ledger master and approach your work as fine art.

Your expertise…

You take care of a well-oiled administration and have a proactive attitude in adding to the optimization of procedures and processes. You see where there’s work to do, act on it, and feel a great sense of responsibility to make sure all deadlines are achieved within your team. You love the feeling of a well-oiled machine that is called Operational Finance. Your experience with financial and administrative processes in a similar job will be of advantage in your new role at Merkle Netherlands.

You are ambitious and an example for the people around you. Tackle and arrange, that’s your motto. Next to your Operational Finance colleagues, you have a lot of contact with our Finance Managers, Controllers and the CFO. They support you as sparring partners for financial expertise and proactivity. You know how to create support with your colleagues and the management team based on your enthusiasm and positivity. You take them with you in your ideas about the optimization of procedures and processes.

How cool is this? You are the financial conscious for all offices in the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Breda) and thus will be showing your face at all different locations regularly.

Some specifics we require:

  • a bachelor degree in Finance / Accounting;
  • at least three years of experience in a similar job;
  • up-to-date knowledge of developments within the financial and fiscal area of expertise;
  • passion for what you do and how you do it;
  • strong communicative skills and a process focused approach;
  • a good relationship with Excel;
  • great at speaking and writing in both Dutch and English.

Your job...

Within our Finance team, you are the lock and key for all ledger accounts of the entire organization. Therefore you are based in Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Together with the team, you make sure all daily activities are executed on a high qualitative level. From purchasing to invoicing and from selling to takings. The ledger does not have any secrets for you. Therefore you have all administrations as tight as they can be.

Next to the daily goings, you support the Finance Manager with process adjustments to make the operational administration more effective and efficient.

Join us

What we offer? Quite a lot, here are some highlights:

  • space and time to develop yourself and grow into a role that suits you best;

Where will you work?

Your homebase will be in Rotterdam (in one of the 5 coolest offices in Rotterdam) and in Amsterdam (the stylish G-star building designed by Rem Koolhaas) to be precise. And no, that’s not only our opinion. We made lists! Check out the awesome interior, flexible work places and open spaces. If you’d ask us we also think the parties, room for initiative and good vibes are what makes us great. We don’t like shady stuff, but we do like a good atmosphere.
