WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING                

As part of the Specialist Accounting team, you will take care of the financial management of about 50 different legal entities at home and abroad.

  • You will be independently organizing, executing and verifying the complete accounts of the assigned entities within the group.
  • Specifically, you are responsible for the periodic (monthly, quarterly and annual) closing, but also the critical review of the balance sheet does not escape your attention.
  • You take the lead in the preparation of the statutory and consolidated annual accounts.
  • You prepare statutory and legal reports and submit them within the set deadlines.
  • Your ‘fiscal eye’ also sees to it that the legal accounting rules are applied.
  • During the annual audit, you will assist – in word and deed – where necessary.
  • While preparing for reporting and budgeting, you share your expertise with the other finance teams.
  • GL related (ad hoc) projects are also part of your many challenges.



Your analytically critical view ensures that every annual account and balance sheet is thoroughly scrutinized. It stimulates you to look for additional information and new financial insights constantly. Keeping up to date with the applicable tax regulations is something you take for granted and find fascinating. Your communication skills also enable you to communicate your professional knowledge clearly to ‘non-specialists’ within our organization.



During the last couple of years, our finance department has evolved to a strong advisory department. Your specialized knowledge will contribute proactively to the safe growth of our organization.

The multitude of companies, as well as the international character ensure that our organizational structure offers an absolute challenge to every finance professional.



85 branches in 19 countries, 6,560 employees, one million square meters of warehouse, 1,475 trucks and 1,800 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 on the one hand, while offering our employees the opportunity to contribute actively to our success story on a daily basis 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.
