Group Finance Project Manager

32-38 hours per week

With your project management skills, you will contribute to the ongoing professionalisation of our Group Finance department. 

Your daily tasks

As Project Manager, you will manage one or more projects that have an impact on the Group Finance organisation. The aim of these projects is to further improve the efficiency or quality of process execution and systems within Group Finance. As Group Finance Project Manager, you will be part of the FP&A department and report directly to the FP&A Manager.

You will be responsible for starting up and leading projects from start to finish. You set up the necessary processes and coordinate with all internal and external stakeholders. You will prepare and guide decision-making on the start and progress of projects. A Finance Project Agenda has been drawn up with more than 30 projects from small to large. These include projects such as setting up our accounting for “new” countries, a smarter close tool, redesigning our general ledger schedule, and also implementing new or improved modules in SAP. 

You will also be involved in various cross-functional projects where the input of Group Finance is required. Various projects within the store organisation, logistics and commerce have an impact on the financial administration and therefore require good coordination between the various departments.

With your proactive attitude, knowledge and experience, you give advice, whether requested or not, on potential improvements within Group Finance. You will also be a strong business partner for our managers and team leaders. 

Your team

Our Finance department currently employs around 70 specialists in various roles. Our Financial Shared Service Center takes care of the entire administration of our international organisation. The Treasury team manages all cash flows. Within Business Controlling, we support the business with financial advice in terms of store operations, commercial control and supply chain. We not only provide key management information, but also challenge the business with our analysis to further optimise processes. Do you want to work within the dynamics of the retail industry, in a young department with plenty of (international) growth opportunities? Then come and work for us!
