You are the curious kind of professional that “gets it” very quickly. Your analytical skills are exceptional and you are eager and enthusiastic to facilitate, always with the bigger company picture in mind. You have a strong desire to develop yourself as an all-round controller instead of a specialist in one focus area? Is this you in a nutshell? Then this position could be perfect for you. You will operate within our Finance & Control department with clear projects and goals but with lots of space to make a difference. We are entrepreneurs and we like entrepreneurs, but we are also “in control” and like to stay “in control” despite of our fast growth. This could be your chance to be part of, and to contribute to, one of Holland’s success stories.

Help keeping AmbaFlex “in control”, what does that mean?
Well, to start with you support the business in the Americas, Europe, and Asia in making the right short- and mid-term decisions and taking the right actions on a project basis. Not in every country our presence is staggering but the complexity lies with the fact you know, or will know, everything that’s needed to support managers at HQ and at local branches in different maturity phases in various control related issues. In some countries we are already settled for years, in others we just started-up and in others we are going to start operating. You will be analyzing (non-)financial data and observe potential improvements, managing cash positions and cash flow forecasts and creating risk and compliance awareness. You also will be assisting in the supplying/reviewing of legal contracts and information and assisting in the creation of business cases. It’s the broadness, variety and the chance to really contribute to a company’s success that attracts you in this role.
