Finance (General Ledger) Team Leader

(Full time, 38 hours a week)
You will have a significant impact as a General Ledger Team Leader. From our Head Office in Noord-Holland, you and your team will be responsible for all of Action's international accounting. As an additional challenge, you will play an important role in the growth we are experiencing as an organisation. Changes and efficiency gains in the area of finance will run smoothly under your leadership.

This is your daily action

You will lead the General Ledger team, which is part of the Financial Shared Service Centre (FSSC). Your team will consist of 10 senior financial accountants, with whom you will work towards a single goal: delivering figures correctly and on time. As the team leader, you will focus on efficiency and continuity in your team. You will monitor the financial period, quarterly and year-end closing and ensure the appropriate follow-up. To achieve this to the best of your ability, you will build up good relationships with your fellow team leaders within the FSSC, Financial Control and Business Controlling.

You will analyse the role of your team within Finance as a whole on an ongoing basis. You will analyse what your team's role should look like and what you require to achieve it (in terms of systems, for example). You will also be involved in various tactical and strategic improvement projects. There is a strong focus on innovation within Finance. As a team leader, you will take our systems, processes and procedures to the next level.

Meet your team

More than 70 specialists work in various roles in the Finance department. The Financial Shared Service Centre takes care of the complete administration of our international organization. Treasury manages all cash flows and our Tax team handles all tax matters. Business Controlling provides financial advice to Store Operations, Commercial Control, Supply Chain and Financial Control. Not only do we provide important management information, but our analysis also ensures important process optimisation.
