This could include certified training providers, enterprise solutions, strategy consultancies or other global B2B and professional services organisations. Experience gained in other B2B sectors would also be considered.

 

To succeed, you must have experience of M & A and post-merger integration, bringing together disparate systems and reports from various accounting systems in different countries, and constructing a reporting structure to manage business as usual. With your knowledge of statutory requirements for multiple European countries, you will have the confidence to build a strong centralised finance team to support our client's strategic and commercial objectives.

 

If you are a strategic thinker, operationally focused, and commercially-minded, we want to hear from you. You must be comfortable, getting into the detail as an Advanced user of Excel. This is a unique opportunity for a European Financial Controller to significantly impact the growth of our client's company. Join their hyper-growth-driven team and submit your application now!

 

Fluency in business English is essential and a second or third European language would be highly advantageous. This is a pan European role, operated on a remote/hybrid model with regular travel into Europe. You can be based in the UK, France, Belgium, or Denmark, ideally close to major Airports.

 

In return our client will offer a very competitive salary and benefits package.
