What is your role about?

They are looking for someone to join our Financial Planning & Control team, currently consisting of 5 Financial Controllers. In your daily work, you will work closely together from their office in Rotterdam with Financial Controllers and Financial Accountants, but also with other corporate functions as the treasurer and the tax manager. Within this position you play a central role in improving the quality of the financial reportings and bring the insights in their numbers to the next level.

Since they are growing and professionalizing, they have the ambition to improve, change and/or expand our consolidation and reporting processes.

In this role there is room for your own initiatives based on your background and your ambition to grow as a professional as well as a person. Together with your other finance colleagues, Director Finance & Control and the CFO you will travel through the story behind the numbers. Amongst others, you will be involved in the following areas:

  • Improving the use of our tools. Take the lead in exploring and implementing further possibilities of Lucanet (reporting and consolidation tool). Key challenge will be to ensure one single source of data, by which both the actuals and forecast are clearly recorded and monitored in one tool. When this is established, you will contribute to improving the analyses of Sunwebs numbers.
  • Master of consolidation. Sunweb wants to make you the owner of the (monthly) consolidation process in which you play a key role in ensuring on time reporting together with the rest of the finance team.
  • Monitoring compliance processes. Monitor compliance of the transactions within various entities in accordance with the transfer pricing agreements of the group. Understand and assist in ensuring compliance of the local requirements of the legal entities within the legal structure.
  • Creating together high quality reporting. The tax manager, treasurer and other colleagues are looking forward working with you. You can share your knowledge and support them with preparing tax calculations, compliance information for external stakeholders (like banks and guarantee funds) and in the integration (or divestment) of acquisitions.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg, you will be able to shape this list of topics based on your analyses, relevant experience, strengths and ambitions.


  • First things first: you have a clear hands-on mentality and you are eager to spot improvement areas and bring a first solution to the table. You possess critical thinking skills, great communication skills, and a high level of motivation. You bring up new ideas and entrepreneurship so we can learn from each other.
