Do you want to make your financial knowledge count? And would you like do so as you support and further develop the finance function in a global organization?

As a group financial controller at GN, you can look forward to plenty of challenges, a large network and many career building opportunities as you carry out controlling assignments and by challenging and improving the way we operate as key contributor in a good variety of finance/reporting projects.

Welcome to a group function
You will join our Group Financial Reporting & Controlling department, which is in charge of the group consolidation, external financial reporting and the financial controlling of all GN entities. We interact with a wide range of stakeholders and colleagues across our global footprint. This means that you will get to know every aspect of the organization and play your role in the GN endeavor to ensure great sound and make a difference for the hearing impaired.

Together, we continuously work on optimizing 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 GN Store Nord – our parent company – as well as the finance functions in both GN Hearing and GN Audio.

”This position is unique as you will explore the global footprint of GN Group and both perform operational tasks and carry out exciting process optimization projects within Group Finance,” Anton Sibast Laugesen, Senior Director of Group Financial Reporting & Controlling.

Take charge of controlling assignments
Being responsible for several subsidiaries, you carry out the monthly controlling for these entities just as you will conduct controller visits. In other words, your time is spent analyzing financial information and providing professional advice and recommendations in many financial reporting and accounting aspects, as you will:

• Be responsible for all financial controlling of your assigned companies
• Be the go-to expert for your assigned companies when questions arise about group reporting accounting policies or other challenges
• Deliver key inputs and analysis for internal/external reporting and decision-making purposes and make recommendations to senior management based on your analysis
• Take joint responsibility for continuously automating and optimizing our processes, e.g. procedures related to financial controlling and monthly reporting
• Participate in the group closing process and understand the flow from entity reporting to consolidated reporting
• Lead/participate in cross-functional projects or initiatives

Join an ambitious team of finance professionals
Joining 11 dedicated colleagues in an open office space, you can look forward to becoming part of a great department where we share knowledge daily. Continuous professional development is an important cornerstone as we always look to challenge and transform the finance function.

Experience with financial controlling and reporting
You are the first to take initiative and thrive in a position where your judgements are trusted. You take an organized approach to your tasks, and you are thorough, yet you can decipher where it is best to put your efforts. Moreover, you have an eye for quality, and you:
• Hold a master’s degree in finance, preferably within business administration & auditing, finance, accounting or similar
• Have 2-4 years of experience, preferably from an international auditing firm and/or from a large international company
• Have a flair for IT systems and applications, and experience with AX/MS Dynamics, Navision and SAP BPC is an advantage
• Speak and write English at a high level
• Are willing to travel 20-30 days annually to our global subsidiaries
• Have IFRS knowledge though you do not need to be a specialist
