At all times you seek to translate theoretical accounting concepts into practical solutions as we integrate the new IFRS implementation.

In addition to these core activities you also:

  • Participate in closing processes and AkzoNobel accounting manual improvements;
  • Review and resolve significant issues raised by liaising with all relevant internal stakeholders;
  • Lead technical departmental projects (as IFRS expert) and drive continuous improvements in and between accounting departments (Corporate Accounting & Reporting, RACs, GBS).

Candidate profile
To apply for this position you must possess all the following attributes:

  • Master’s degree in Economics, Accounting or Business Administration and certified accountant (RA/CPA or equivalent);
  • 6+ years of experience in relevant Accounting positions, ideally with one of the leading accounting firms or a multinational (HQ);
