Are you the one that we need for our global business controlling team to be our Global Operations finance resource, working with financial analysis, developing tools and analysis, communicate the operations financials to the rest of the organization and at the same time contribute to drive business development opportunities in local and global projects?

About the position

The Global Operations Finance role is to support the COO and the Global Operations organisation with financial analysis and information and to develop the operations financial analysis and tools globally. Furthermore, you will coordinate the creation, break down and follow up of the Business Plan and develop and monitor our KPI's for operations. This position includes financial responsibility of the standard cost, forecast and target process for Global Operations and to continously identify and drive business development opportunities in local or global projects. You will be supporting the matrix organisation with a deeper understanding of the Global Operations financial performance.

This position is placed in Group Business Control but you will have colleagues both locally and at our different sites around the world. In addition you will be a member of Global Operations Management team, lead by our COO. The position requires some travels to our sites around the world. We have flexible working policies which means that some days of the week you can work from home.

Your profile

You are a natural communicator who can create a deeper understanding for the financial performance within the organization while also have the ability to challenge opinions. This position requires a big network which means that you need to create long term relationships with people across different cultures.
