As Business Controller for FP&A, you ensure timely reporting of the consolidated actual performance, forecasts and targets, and you support with financial analysis, advise and tools to optimize decision making and identify financial and operational drivers. Looking at modern, automated and proactive ways of working, you make sure we take necessary actions to develop and improve our processes, as well as our structure of operational performance management. A big part of your mission is providing counsel to the Sales Area Business Controller and other key stakeholders in the region. You also support our Manager for Business Development and Strategy. You are a member of the Business Control management team for the Sales Area, and you handle consolidation and reporting of our financials and KPIs. In addition, you are a frequent user of BPC, Qlickview and Excel, and your knowledge and experience help us ensure accuracy in reports and analysis.

  • Skills in Excel, group reporting tools and data warehouse solutions
  • The ability to collaborate in matrix and cross-cultural settings
