Business Controller

Dept Holding NL

Business Controller 

Do you like to crunch data, develop financial models and provide thoughtful business insights to management? Dept is looking for a Business Controller to do just that. 

The FP&A department works across a wide variety of stakeholders, countries and nationalities and its work is critical to the company’s strategic decision making. We are looking for an expert in critically evaluating data and building robust models that enable management to make sound business decisions. You need to be a proactive thinker who enjoys problem solving, communicating with non-financial stakeholders and being a team player. 

Your routine tasks will involve developing budgets and forecasts, analyzing monthly financial performance, creating insightful KPIs, supporting with the upkeep of quality data and challenging the business leaders. Also, as you will be joining a rapidly scaling company, you will play a key role in supporting projects that enable the company to build on its success. These projects can include systems integrations and replatforming, acquisition onboarding, rebranding, non-financial KPI development and more.   

You will work in a vibrant environment with clever minds that work for a variety of large global clients. Yes, we are eager to hire the most talented experts in the game, but we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn, inspires, strives towards a better world; a futurist at heart who takes the stage and will toast to a successful week with us. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who is able to strengthen our collective. We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
