Organisational and departmental description

Working at De Opbouw means working for 3 healthcare organisations. In the financial column, forces are combined and uniformity is introduced in the various financial work processes. A separation has been made between the financial administration on the one hand and the control function (financial control and business control) on the other. This provides stability and brings focus for professionalisation in supporting the three care organisations. The Senior Financial Controller reports to the Group Controller and is cooperating foreman of the Financial Controllers (3 fte). Within Group Control, you also work closely with the various business controllers, because of the input they provide for the reports within Financial Control. Together with the Manager Financial Accounting, you discuss the periodic closures.

  • Develop, manage and apply/ roll out reporting formats/ accounting manual

Job requirements

You are someone who works accurately, has and keeps an overview easily, and can plan and organise. Through your strong oral and written expression skills, and with humour, you know how to move and position yourself appropriately within an organisation.

“Beginnen als PMO’er bij Nouryon om IT-projecten te ondersteunen was al gaaf en leerzaam. Vervolgens doorgroeien om als jr. projectleider een bijdrage te leveren aan de nieuwe strategie van Nouryon door nieuwe organisatiestructuren te laten reflecteren in diverse applicaties maakt het helemaal af.”
