LEO Pharma

Financial Controller

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

Within the last couple of years LEO Pharma has applied 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 the European Finance Hub which is also expanding with more countries over the next few years. 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 some specific affiliates under the European Finance Hub. Your daily focus is on finance controlling and compliance tasks to ensure proper monthly financial 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 might participate in in different projects, for example in relation to VAT or outsourcing selected compliance tasks. The position will give you a large interface across the international organization and with external partners.

Travel activity within Europe is expected in this position – app. 2-3 days pr. month and in connection with year-end audit (1 week).


You have a finance degree, eg. HD(R) or cand.merc.aud., and solid accounting or financial controlling experience from another international company. Hence, your financial toolbox is in place, including working with MS Office and SAP. If you have experience with VAT reporting, this will be an advantage. You possess good analytical and coordination 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, optimize and implement 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 and drive these across the finish line. Finally, as part of an international business you should be good at English.

Your new team

You will have ten 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 30 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.
