As a Business Controller, you will be part of a dynamic and driven team of financial experts. You are the driving force behind our monthly business reporting and are in close contact with the other finance colleagues and a number of operational stakeholders.

What do you do concretely?   

  • You contribute to the monthly operational reporting.
  • Starting from the monthly figures, you are responsible for the business reporting.
  • You help monitor profitability by analysing the current figures in relation to the budget, previous financial years and the strategic direction of the business.
  • You draw up the annual budgets in close cooperation with the Finance Business Partner.
  • From a proactive mind-set, you notice possible improvements and take the initiative to start up improvement projects.
  • You are the right person to carry out ad hoc analyses.



As a controller, you can count on a broad financial background combined with strong analytical and numerical insight. In addition, Excel and BI applications are no stranger to you. Your proactive attitude means that we can count on your ideas and proposals to manage our business in a financially healthy way. As a team player, you work closely together with your colleagues inside and outside the financial services department. 



We offer you the opportunity to evolve in the direction you have in mind. In recent years, our Finance department has evolved into 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. The multitude of (inter)national companies and business units ensures that our Finance structure offers an absolute (international) challenge to every Finance professional. Seize this opportunity to develop yourself!
