Additionally, you actively contribute to the adherence to- and maintenance of the internal controls over the financial reporting, while also driving and engaging in various finance- and accounting-oriented initiatives.
As the main point of contact for various stakeholders within the finance function, your proactivity and stakeholder management are integral to your personal success and the broader achievements of the team and organization.
