Financial Controller


Your fit

Within the Finance Team we think of quality, innovation, speed and pro-activity as our top priorities. That’s why we are looking for a Financial Controller with a sparkle.

As an all-round controller you will shape the brand new Financial Control department together with 3 other senior finance professionals. You are primarily responsible for the process around financial reporting, annual reports and the audit process of the entire group. It goes without saying that these are all carefully planned, prepared and executed. Next to that things as process design, ISO, ERP and payroll management are all important elements in your day to day work.  

Your job

During the execution of your tasks there’s nothing you miss. You are a perfectionist, are capable to juggle all balls in the air and make sure you unburden your colleagues. When necessary you involve them or the CFO to make sure you, together, reach the optimal result.

You’ve got a clear view of what it takes to give some insight in group performances from a result, risk and compliance point of view. You’re a professional and have a proven track record for an efficient audit process. You are the one that makes sure you can meet those expectations and when needed work hand in hand with the CFO to do what it takes.

Taking responsibility and being accountable are within your comfort zone. You have finished a theoretical education and a couple of years of relevant work experience (preferable in the audit of large SMEs). You want to make an impact and that’s why you are taking your career to the next step: financial management. This competence is necessary to be relevant within our commercial organization. You see why we need a controller with a sparkle? 

In 2018 we have become part of the international organization (Merkle/DAN). In short these will be your challenges:

• Setup and maintain a Merkle NL system for Approvals & Escalation;
• Payroll management;
• Work together with team on “implementation of” or “changes on” new ERP;
• Working Capital management (together with Commercial Finance);
• Balance Sheet ownership;
• Month-end & reporting (consolidated);
• Reporting & Consolidation;
• Audit management & Statutory Compliance.

Your expertise

Your expertise and accuracy make sure your work is transparent. With enthusiasm you know how to build awareness amongst colleagues and the management team. You take them with you in your idea making and optimizing procedures and processes. You lift the company to the next level just by being you. Again and again. Our new colleague is a team player with excellent communicative skills who’s great at managing stakeholders. You’ve got a pragmatic attitude, healthy dose of curiosity and are stress-resistant.

You are the epitome of vigor and you position yourself as the result-oriented specialist with flair. You feel at home in a dynamic environment (and the other way around) that’s all about thriving. You oversee the organizational processes in helicopter view and work with the use of professional standards and procedures. You are sharp, critical and service-minded towards colleagues. You’ve got a hands-on mentality and aren’t afraid to make good use of your brain.  

Some specifics we require

• A structured way of working that comes natural;
• A bachelor or master’s degree in business economics or equivalent;
• 5 to 8 relevant years of experience in business services, preferable in a quick changing branch;
• Experience in supervising audits independently;
• The sense of responsibility what makes you stick out your neck regularly;
• Up to date knowledge of new innovations and developments within the financial and fiscal world;
• Knowledge, insight and experience with ERP and reporting systems;
