About the position

You will have the total responsibility of the finance function (including HR) for both companies, BI-QEM AB and BI-QEM Resin AB. You manage and support three coworkers focusing on accounting, salaries and personnel administration, and your main focus will be more on the controlling part. You make sure the books are closed and the result analyzed and reported in time on a monthly basis.

The organization is continuously developing, a progress you will be very much involved in. It could be for instance the development of KPI´s together with the production managers, creating business cases for investments, follow up the capex spending or evaluate an ERP-system. In other words, a lot of variation.

Here´s some of your responsibilities in bullet points:

  • Run the finance department with managerial responsibility for three co-workers
  • Ensure that the monthly result is correct and reported in time together with analysis and comments
  • Sharp analysis of costs, sales, margins and result
  • Budgeting, forecasting and reporting
  • Capex
  • Development of processes, KPI´s and other methods of measuring the business

So, who are we looking for?

What we see before us is a candidate with at least 5+ years experience from the finance department of a midsize manufacturing company. If you come from process industry or FMCG we consider it an advantage.

You have an academic exam within Finance or Business Administration and experience from controlling as well as accounting. Previous experience from corporate finance would be positive as well.

If you haven’t previous experience from managing staff that´s fine, but we do expect a great passion for people and the potential and interest to become a great manager.

Your personality and characteristics are of great importance. Obviously you are structured and analytical with a thing for figures. What we want on top of that is the ability to take initiatives, courage to challenge, creativity to find solutions, drive to make a change and energy to influence your surroundings. You understand that driving change in some cases requires both flexibility and stubbornness, as well as the ability to adapt to changing conditions.

Your communication skills are excellent, and since you work in an international environment we need you to master both Swedish and English verbally and in writing. Previous experience from Navision is positive, but great skills in Excel is more important.

The position is full time and based in Perstorp. Limited travel might occur.
