DEPT is growing lightning fast, both organically as through buy & build. We are an established name in mainland Europe and seek to expand in the US, UK, South / Central Europe, and APAC in the next 18 months. For an ambitious Financial, this drive could be the ideal environment for a third or fourth step in their career whereby leadership, agile thinking, and continuous process improvement will be key requirements.

Finance in DEPT is organized along with two key responsibilities, one team is responsible for Accounting, Financial Control, and Reporting, while the other is responsible for Budgeting, Forecasting, and Business Partnering. The Global Head of Finance is leading the first group and is responsible for the EMEA International Finance Teams and the Group Control Team. While the Head of FP&A leads the other team. Both Heads report to the CFO.

Within the International Finance Team, we currently have two Financial Controller / Finance Manager roles, one is vacant. In this role, you will lead the end-to-end accounting for the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the UK. You will be initially responsible for leading a team of approximately six to eight professionals with mixed backgrounds. Some have been with DEPT for 20 years when the company was originally founded, and have grown ever since, others have joined a few months ago from the Big4 and hold a Master’s degree with dito ambition. Our company needs both ends of the spectrum since one is a true guardian of our culture and is the glue of our finance team and the other brings the professional experience of big companies that we need to adopt the change and move in the right direction.

What are we looking for?

Our ideal candidate has 8 to 12 years’ experience in the field of financial accounting, auditing or financial consulting, and preferably has recent experience as a Finance Manager, SSC manager or advisor/consultant dealing with transformation processes within finance. He or she is deadline orientated, has an eye for quality, and flags improvements. DEPT is growing very rapidly as a company meaning that not a day in the office is the same. Growth is the only constant, and that growth needs to be supported by a robust finance team.
