Job Description

We are looking for an experienced Financial Controller to be part of our Financial Control team.

If you are experienced within financial accounting & audit processes and strive to work in an international environment, then this role could certainly be of interest to you. You must be able to envisage yourself in a complex and fast-paced international company where everyday life is multifaceted and highly unpredictable.

The role

You will be a key player in our finance team overseeing the financial controlling of Centrica Energy Europa’s legal entities and branches in Germany, Norway, Sweden, Singapore, and United Kingdom. We value the right match of personal and professional skills.

Job responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Participate in preparing annual reports including audit documentations.

  • Participate in preparing annual corporate tax returns in cooperation with external tax advisors.

  • Participate in any upgrade/changes of our IT-systems including migration to a new ERP system.

  • Participate in an ongoing optimisation of our processes and internal controls.

This role is within a financial controlling team with 10 colleagues (2 located in Antwerpen, Belgium and 8 in Aalborg, Denmark). The team covers a wide range of tasks consisting of both controlling, internal and external reporting across Centrica Energy Europe.

The role is based in Centrica Energy Europe’s office in Aalborg, but we would expect some opportunity to work from home on occasions. Some travel to visit our offices across Europe and United Kingdom should be expected (3-5 days yearly/annually).

About you

To be successful in this role you will have the following:

  • +3 years of experience from a major international company or an audit firm.

  • Knowledge of accounting routines.

  • Experience with external financial reporting.

  • Must be comfortable in dealing with external auditors and advisors.

  • Speaking and writing English easily.

To build a more sustainable future, we need the best team – a team with a diverse mix of people and skills, where everyone feels welcome and able to succeed. We are dedicated in helping to close the diversity gap across the technology sector and would love to see more females, people of colour and LGBTQ+ employees, as well as those from a variety of cultures and ethnicity to veterans and the differently abled which is why we aim to fight the unconscious biases. Belonging to these groups does not give you special advantages in the recruitment process either as we aim to hire the best candidate for our teams independently of the above mentioned factors. Supporting diversity and inclusion is a big part of who we are, we are not looking for people to fit into our culture but to add to it!
