About the job

You are an ambitious corporate controller and eager to join an innovative international organization. Working in an international environment within a listed company as part of a small central finance team, you will cover a broad range of corporate finance responsibilities. Your main goal is to support the continuous improvement of internal controls over financial processes, including follow-up on internal and external audit findings. You support internal and external reporting, including preparation of the consolidated IFRS financial statements. Furthermore, you ensure the correct adaptation of IFRS standards throughout the group. In addition, you support management with ad-hoc projects, such as M&A, corporate finance activities, legal restructurings and relocations. You interface with group companies, the external auditor and tax advisors.

Offer description
