Your new employer
The operating model of the finance function of our client is being re-designed from a decentralised (local) organisation with country finance heads (reporting to CFO and local managing directors) to a centralised organisation (where possible) with three teams: 1) Central accounting, reporting and treasury (ART); 2) Business performance management; 3) Basel and capital management. The Team ART ensures the proper recording of financial information in the financial administration, the local country accounts and the monthly closing procedure. It compiles, validates and reports the local and (consolidated) figures for the group, including internal (management) reports, statutory accounts and regulatory reporting. The Team will take care of the centralisation of accounting activities from UK, FR and DE to the Netherlands. You are part of the accounting team and report to the Team Lead Accounting & Treasury.
