Group Financial Controller
At the VELUX Group, we give you the chance to grow. To shape your own career. To work in an international environment. To be part of a company that leads the market in sustainable indoor living. We offer you a world of opportunities – if you have the ability and the drive to take them.
Would you like to help us develop our group financial reporting and optimise processes to increase efficiency?
Then we offer you the chance to play an important role in a team that strives to implement best practice in all group reporting processes, systems and services.
You will be a part of Group Consolidation in the VELUX Group HQ in Hørsholm. Together, we continuously work on optimising financial reporting processes and systems to ensure that our operations are as efficient as possible. This way, we ensure that we can deliver high quality reporting and support to VKR – our parent company – as well as the Finance & Performance Management team, Financial Compliance team, Tax team and our many subsidiaries.
We recently acquired 20+ companies, which must now be implemented in our group reporting system, and as a fellow group financial controller, you will contribute to making this a success.
Specifically, you will:
- Be responsible for all financial controlling of your assigned companies
- Be the go-to expert for your assigned companies if questions arise about group reporting, accounting policies or other challenges
- Take joint responsibility for continuously automating and optimising our processes, e.g. procedures related to monthly reporting
- Partake in the inspection and maintenance of the group chart of accounts
- Participate in preparation and reporting of VELUX Group figures.
”This position is unique as you will both perform operational tasks and carry out exciting process optimisation projects,” explains Malene Hjort, Senior Manager of Global Consolidation, VELUX Global Accounting & Tax.
You are highly independent and thrive in a position where your judgements are trusted. You take an organised approach to your tasks, and you are thorough, yet you can decipher where it is best to put your efforts. You do not need experience with group accounts – but we do expect you to:
- Hold a degree in HD accounting, cand.merc.aud or similar
- Bring 3+ years of experience as an auditor, controller or consultant
- Be IT savvy and therefore quick to master our – quite user-friendly – tools
- Speak and write English effortlessly – Danish is an advantage.
As the VELUX Group develops, so will your tasks. Working across many business entities and functions, you will get a chance to sharpen your analytical skills and form strong collaborative relationships with colleagues and stakeholders from various parts of the business.
To us, collaboration is key, and we encourage local initiatives. This means that you will have contact with a wide range of key stakeholders and gain exposure across our organisation. As you build strong business relationships and business acumen, you will become a key player in supporting our growth strategy.
”You can look forward to become part of a small team with an informal tone and a great deal of specialised knowledge within VELUX and group reporting. We are very excited to gain another “family member” and get your take on how we can carry out our financial processes most effectively,” adds Malene Hjort.
