As a Senior Financial Accounting Professional you are responsible for the IFRS monthly and quarterly reports to the Bank and ensure that these reports are provided efficiently and in accordance with IFRS standards.

In your role you provide guidelines and guidance to the Procure to Pay (P2P) and General Accounting (GA) department with the aim of improving the process and thus the period closings. You are also actively involved in the period closings by making memos to explain the balance and P&L changes to management. Every year, several audits are carried out by the internal and external accountant, in which you play an important role in guiding these audits.

You have an active role in maintaining the internal control environment. The bank uses an internal control environment in which it is important that the key controls are maintained. It is also important that the associated work instructions (SOPs) are up to date and that the End User Designed Applications (EUDAs) are used in a controlled manner.

Within the bank we are always looking for improvement and continuously learn from our experiences. Various projects are being carried out within the Finance department. You will have an active role in the evolution of processes, both by implementing small improvements and finishing bigger projects.

The aim is to get one step better every day.
