Financial Controller – in the new European Finance Hub

Do you want to be part of a new finance operating model in LEO Pharma?

LEO Pharma is implementing a new way of working in Finance: Implementing SAP, outsourcing transactional finance processes to a Business Process Outsourcing provider (BPO) and teaming up with a Compliance Process outsourcing provider (CPO) to handle compliance tasks. This is managed through a recently established European Finance Hub. As such, most of the transactional tasks have been outsourced meaning that the Hub is focusing on the most value creating tasks.


Controlling, analysis, development, support, reporting….

You will be the responsible financial controller for Belgium and the Netherlands under the European Finance Hub. Your daily focus is on controlling and compliance tasks to ensure proper monthly reporting and follow-up, while at the same time considering how we can do things in the most efficient way. This is the foundation of the new European Finance Hub. In this way, you will have influence on the new setup and on establishing the processes. Amongst others your tasks will include:

  • Financial controlling and support
  • Review of reconciliations and preparation of comments for monthly reporting
  • Planning and managing the statutory financial statement process
  • Communication with auditors as well as collection of documentation for the audit
  • Controlling VAT reporting and other reports to authorities

In addition to the above, you will participate in in different projects, for example outsourcing selected compliance tasks due to language challenges. The position will give you a large interface across the international organisation and with external partners.



You have a finance degree, eg. HD(R) or cand.merc.aud., and solid accounting or financial controlling experience. Hence, your financial toolbox is in place, including working with MS Office. If you know SAP, this will be a clear advantage. You possess good analytical skills and have a good sense for details.

Your personality is equally important. You have a good sense of humor and a positive approach. Further, you should thrive in a changeable environment, where you will need to help establish and optimise new processes, while at the same time deliver on the specific tasks. It is important that you can work independently taking responsibility for your own tasks. Finally, as part of an international business you should be good at English, and if you speak Dutch this would be a plus, though not a requirement.  


Your new team

You will have nine good and committed colleagues in a relatively newly established team located at LEO Pharma’s headquarters in Ballerup, together with a group of colleagues abroad. We are part of Group Accounting with a total of almost 20 highly competent colleagues. We want to succeed in this exciting task, and we will do that with a mix of good mood, helpfulness and cooperation.

Contact and application deadline Please send your application and CV before April 3, 2018.

You are also welcome to contact Hub Manager Mille Frydendahl Iversen on + 45 7260 8922 if you have any questions about the position. We will invite for interviews on an ongoing basis.  

 We look forward to hearing from you!
