About the role

To manage such a large organization, we have of course rolled out an outstanding finance department over the years and more concretely in the structure of an RSSC. The heart of finance is located at DSV Road Holding NV, located in Puurs, from where we are in daily direct contact with our MDs and colleagues across Europe West.

The mission of a “Business Controlling Specialist” for the “RSSC in Europe West” is to analyze both the gains against the losses and the balance sheet, as well as reporting for the various entities within your responsibility. The Controller should support Management with clear and objective comments on various day-to-day business matters and, in addition, provide both Management and Operations (MDs of the various entities) with guidance and monitoring with regard to business performance. The Controller will closely monitor any risks that could arise from outstanding items in the balance sheet and will ensure that Management is alerted to any adverse risk.

Apart from that, there are also opportunities for profiles who want a long career within BE. Of course, these profiles will also occasionally go on a business trip, but not to the extent that this interferes with the desired work-life balance.
