You’ll furthermore gather, analyse and present various financial topics in an accessible way to Group executives as well as perform ad hoc analyses, prepare projects and presentations and handle various other tasks.

Your competences include that you

Furthermore, you don’t hesitate to challenge the consensus, you have a strong analytical mindset and you’re not put off by complexity. In addition to being performance-driven, you have a strong personal drive, determination and initiative, and you’re flexible, which is essential as your workload may become relatively heavy during busy periods.
