Head of Finance at Volkswagen Semler Finans Danmark A/S

Volkswagen Semler Finans Danmark

Would you like to be a part of building a new finance company from scratch by contributing with your strong financial understanding? Do you have a background in accounting and experience leading a team?
Then you might be our new Head of Finance, who will play an important role in managing the ongoing financial health of the organisation.

The position
As our Head of Finance, you will have a unique opportunity to use your skills and knowledge in building and organising a well-functioning accounting department and leading a qualified team of employees.

Being a “hands on” leader of a small team you are responsible for creating and operating processes for accounting, taxation, procurement and treasury in compliance with legal, regulatory and internal requirements. It is also your responsibility to establish and monitor processes to ensure cost efficient and compliant procurement. You will be in close cooperation with the relevant local company functions as well as relevant functions on shareholder level.
Your key tasks include:
  • Establishing, maintaining and coordinating the implementation of accounting and accounting control procedures.
  • Preparing various statements and reports such as monthly closing and cost accounting reports in Danish GAAP/IFRS.
  • Interacting with external/internal auditors.
  • Ensuring correct tax handling/payment regarding VAT and corporate taxes as well as interaction with tax authorities.
  • Ensuring proper cash management and organizing cost optimal debt/equity funding in cooperation with a centralized treasury department.
  • Organizing and handling invoice treatments and payment transactions.
We expect your experience in accounting amounts to a minimum of five years and we would prefer if you have worked for an auditor company or within accounting in the financial services industry – but this is not a requirement. Your experience is combined with an educational background in business administration (e.g. a master’s degree, HD or comparable degree). With this background you have obtained a great knowledge of the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (Danish GAAP/IFRS) and have become conversant in operational Danish taxation.

Volkswagen Semler Finans Danmark A/S is a new project in Denmark and therefore your ability to take initiative with a hands-on attitude will do you well in our start-up culture. In the position you will take on project management within an agile and changing environment. With your experience and motivation, you can see yourself thrive in being part of setting the direction for our company’s financial management. As we are part of an international setup it is important that you master the English language verbally as well as in writing.

You show the ability to lead and motivate people in your team and you have excellent communication skills. Furthermore, you are known to be responsible, professional and loyal towards your workplace and colleagues.

At the same time we are a startup company building a new unique company from scratch. We have great support from our owners, who know the market very well.
