Finance Manager - European e-Commerce
Based in Amsterdam €80-110k plus bonus, plus shares and benefits.
This is without doubt one of the most exciting finance positions currently available within this large global ecommerce and technology led organization.
The career prospects are fascinating and international and this role is there to be defined by yourself from the off. You will report to the CFO and be their right hand person. The CFO reports to the CEO so your visibility and potential career growth as a result is unprecedented.
You are an independent self-starter who likes to work with little supervision and will be excited about building new ways of working which will in a large part be mapped out by you
The first job will be around a large budget process to help them figure out the returns which will set the tone for the direction of the business over the coming year.
Figuring things out will be a big part of your role and you should be able to deal with ambiguity, and if you're the kind of person who thrives in green field environments where you have the opportunity to steer the direction of future processes with some really interesting and varied work, then this could be the role you've been looking for.
Of course you will be a Financial Planning and Analysis wizard and you should also be able to present to the highest level of management and have great relationship building and influencing skills to get your points home.
If you have experience in the following this will be highly regarded: ecommerce, retail, fashion, mobile, payments, working in emerging markets and large multi-national organisations.
Emerging markets are very important for the business and you will have the opportunity to travel to the countries where they have operations if you feel it's necessary.
Longer term there are career opportunities for this person to develop into CFO, Head of, M&A Planning, or even General Manager for one of the group's businesses on a global basis.
They use SAP and Cognos so if you have experience with these tools great - smart people who have experience of other tools will also be considered.
If the type of questions you ask when considering your career opportunities are along the lines of "What do I have to do and what resources do I need to do it?" rather than "how many direct reports will I have?" then we would like to talk with you. This starts off life as an individual contributor role, but will quickly scale up and being one of the first key people in this new function has the potential for a great career path.
You will have fluent English and any other language would be a bonus particularly Polish.
If you wish to be considered for this superb role with this fast growing, profitable and well-resourced organization where you can really make a difference then don't hesitate to get in touch for a confidential discussion and how we may be able to best position you for success with our client. We look forward to hearing from you.
