AP Accountant | Zeebrugge

Financial SPOC for our suppliers.



H.Essers is an international and reliable player in the logistics sector, but above all a family business that has offered jobs and job security since 1928. Our 6.560 colleagues are ambitious people who dare to do business, are ready to seize opportunities and make a difference every day with simplicity. This enables us as a company to invest continuously in growth with a positive outlook on the future. Our people are our engine. We take care of their personal and professional development, provide them with modern equipment and pay attention to the work-life balance. Yes, our 6.560 colleagues know why they choose H.Essers.
We hope you will soon understand why! We are looking for an AP Accountant (Temporary until the end of 2021)



Delivering correct and timely invoicing that enables closing with the right data is what you are all about!

  • You manage payments of all outstanding invoices of one or more H.Essers companies like no other.
  • In addition, you are responsible for booking purchase invoices and credit notes.
  • Conflicts of interest should always be avoided and that is why we apply the four-eye principle within H.Essers. What does this mean for you concretely? You manage the financial administration of a company other than the one for which you manage the invoicing: booking bank statements, making payments, taking care of various legal declarations…
  • Together with the GL Accountants team, you ensure, in a supporting role, a correct monthly closing, which is an ideal learning environment for you.
  • Your active involvement in finance projects ensures that your knowledge is further developed.



In this position, you ensure a smooth contact with the H.Essers suppliers on a daily basis. You will act as a finance professional. Supplier accounting and VAT legislation holds few secrets to you. You combine a smooth verbal communication style (N/E/F/D) with an analytical financial approach. Of course, working with numbers implies that you are extremely accurate.



Evolve in the direction you have in mind for yourself. Our finance department has been evaluated in recent years to an advisory department. That is why we give you the responsibility to ensure that all data is processed correctly so that your colleagues (as well as the business) can work with this information and so that we as an organization can continue to grow in a financially secure way. The multitude of national and international companies ensures that our finance structure offers an absolute (international) challenge to every finance professional. Seize the opportunity to develop yourself.



77 branches in 19 countries, 6.560 employees, one million square meters of warehouse, 1.475 trucks and 2.000 ISO tanks. Yes, H.Essers is a major logistics service provider and an established value for our strategic customer segments Pharma, Chemicals, Infra and Parts. Our flat structure ensures short and fast decision lines (efficiency) on the one hand, while offering our employees the opportunity to contribute actively to our success story on a daily basis (involvement) on the other hand. Room for autonomy and initiative within our no nonsense and can-do culture are a perfect combination to develop our climate of entrepreneurship and constitute the pillars of our stable growth.
