With a track record of 140+ events and a network that truly spans the entire world, our mission is to positively impact the world by accelerating the renewable energy transition by facilitating knowledge-sharing at our events and through our content. Currently, we are expanding our service portfolio by adding more digital marketing options and digitizing our event experience.

Don’t hesitate and take this moment to apply and maybe you will be our new team member. 

The Financial Administrator, under the guidance of the Business Controller, is responsible for controlling the financial administration, consisting of both accounts payable and accounts receivable. This will not be restricted to keeping the records. It also involves improving processes, (proactive) management reporting and further professionalisation..
