Locatie: Utrecht, Den Bosch

We are looking for a:

Senior Accounting Professional

We are looking for enthusiastic Accounting Professionals who enjoy working in a diverse team that aims for the best quality of service possible towards all stakeholders and is always looking for ways to improve processes. What do you see when you envision the next step? Work on achieving your goals and develop yourself professionally and personally. Tell us your story. We want to hear it! 

Your job

As an Accounting Professional you stand at the basis of all financial data within ABN AMRO Asset Based Finance, so you are responsible for a timely delivery of accurate financial data to all stakeholders involved. This does not mean you just carry out the tasks that are assigned to you; as a Senior Accounting Professional you are able to look at processes and see the bigger picture. What is the desired outcome of an activity? What stakeholders are involved? How can processes be improved (radically) and who do I need to get on board to make it happen? These are some of the questions that Senior Accounting Professionals need to ask themselves over and over. Furthermore, you will have an important role in the integration of two Accounting, Treasury & Tax departments (see 'Your working environment'), looking for the best practices/solutions for all integration issues that we encounter. The processes that are performed by the Accounting Professionals are ranging from Accounts Payable to General Ledger/Tax activities and ultimately end with reporting the actuals towards ABN AMRO Bank. As a Senior Accounting Professional you will also be giving guidance to your Junior colleagues on both the recurring Accounting tasks and process improvements to enable them to develop into a senior role.  Within ABF we're not just performing a task; we are always looking for improvement and continuously learn from our experiences. This means that everyone working at ABF has an active role in the evolution of processes, both by implementing small improvements and finishing bigger projects.

Your working environment

ABN AMRO Asset Based Finance (ABF) is a subsidiary of ABN AMRO Bank N.V. and is active in business finance, asset leasing, accounts receivable financing, stock financing and credit management. ABF is active in 5 European countries (UK, Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands) and has the ambition to further expand its position abroad. ABF is a result of a legal merger between ABN AMRO Lease (office in Utrecht) and ABN AMRO Commercial Finance (office in Den Bosch), however, the former Lease and Commercial Finance teams have not been fully integrated yet. The two Accounting, Treasury & Tax teams are currently working relatively independent from one another, mainly because of the existence of two Accounting systems: SAP (Lease) and Smartstream (Commercial Finance). During 2018 one of the Accounting systems will become the target Accounting system, creating more space for cooperation between the teams. Furthermore, the whole organisation will be relocated to a new office in Utrecht (planned date: 1-1-2019).  The Finance function is a centralised function within ABF, where (former) Lease is fully centralised and (former) Commercial Finance is in the process of centralising the activities. More concrete: the Finance activities for ABF NL and UK are being done in the Netherlands, the activities for Germany and France are yet to be fully centralised for the Commercial Finance activity. The Accounting, Treasury & Tax team is an English speaking team of approximately 14 colleagues with a wide variety when it comes to their background. Some of the keywords that apply to the team are teamwork, challenge, self-development, and self-direction.

Your profile

ExperienceFor the Accounting, Treasury & Tax team we are looking for multiple new colleagues with varying levels of experience (Jr. and Sr.). Most importantly candidates need to have an open mindset towards people, processes and development. Expertise

  • Knowledge of business administration at vocational level (at least HBO or an international equivalent).
  • Knowledge of accounting and reporting (including accounting systems).
  • Knowledge of tax regimes in either NL, UK, DE, FR or (preferably) a combination of these.

  • Personal skills to build and maintain mutual beneficial relationships with employees within ABN AMRO, including colleagues in cross border entities.
  • Ability to identify and communicate the important recorded events that have a significant effect on the P&L - without getting lost in details.

 For these positions we are looking for candidates who are already living (and working) in The Netherlands.

What we offer

You get the space to help build the new ABF organization. Working at ABF means working with committed and energetic colleagues in a challenging environment. You can gain a lot of experience in financial services and manage your own development. Furthermore, the Finance department of ABF is designed in a way it offers lots of opportunities to build your career with clear career paths.  In addition to an appropriate salary (40-60K per annum, based on your profile) and ample training opportunities, we offer you a comprehensive package of employment conditions based on the ABN AMRO CLA that consists of attractive employee benefits. It concerns a job for at least 32 hours.  At ABN AMRO, we use our knowledge, expertise and network to help our clients within and outside the Netherlands achieve their goals based on responsible decisions. Our clients’ interests always come first. We want clients to understand our products, and we sometimes say ‘no’ if a product involves a risk that is too high for the client. Putting clients’ interests first also means communicating in plain language and smart solutions that genuinely make a difference. That is our goal.
