Om vår klient
Our client is a global organisation in the retail & e-tail space. They have several subsidiaries and this position will be based at the mother company, at the office in central Stockholm (work-from-home included). They have a presence in over 150 different markets (online) and own thousands of stores worldwide. One of the most exciting parts about this organisation is how they invest in their staff, ensuring that all have the capacity to help drive the company while maintaining a focus on their main mission: putting the customer first.
You will be one of two Senior Nordic Accountants, but will form part a total team of 6 finance professionals. Reporting directly to the Finance Manager, you will be responsible for managing the accounts under IFRS and local GAAP. Naturally you will have oversight over the VAT & moms declaration and will, from time to time, handle some bookkeeping and personnel costs. The main focus however will be on preparing accurate records, ensuring the monthly and yearly closing is done according to plan, managing internal controls and team-leadership/informal management. Your scope of responsibility will cover not only Sweden, but the other Nordic countries as well.
