by Admin

Are you passionate about finance and accounting and do you see yourself being a part of an international organization, leading a team of skilled back-office personnel? Then this might be the right position for you!

Bunker One is now looking for a skilled candidate to lead a finance team of 6. You will provide support in all areas of accounting which requires a service-minded and structured approach towards all stakeholders as well as a hands-on approach. You will be reporting to the Finance Director, Americas for Bunker One.

Focus on finance and accounting through a commercial mindset
The office environment can be described as dynamic, fast-paced, expanding, and versatile, in which not 2 days are the same. Therefore, the perfect candidate will be an experienced result-driven and commercially minded accountancy professional with a proven track record of providing comprehensive advice and effective solutions in all day-to-day accounting and finance matters. The position does not only require a hands-on approach towards tasks such as journal entry preparation, monthly account reconciliations and processing of month-end accruals, but also a candidate that thrives with a versatile workday with additional ad-hoc tasks going on, simultaneously with leading and developing the team.

In more details your assignments will include, but will not be limited to:

  • Preparation of accurate and timely monthly accounts including deviation analysis against estimates and budgets
  • Preparation of external and internal financial statements and liaison with auditors to ensure deadlines are met
  • Reviewing risk exposure on open positions and ensure hedging in line with group policies
  • Ensure correct valuation and reconciliation of physical inventory on all locations
  • Support and assist the account team with day-to-day operational matters
  • Preparation of annual budgets
  • Ensure reconciliation of intercompany transactions in line with Group instructions
  • Perform all other duties as assigned and required

Positive and collaborative mindset with focus on responsibility
Our new Financial Controller is positive and hold a confident, dynamic personality and manages to see things from a positive perspective. Furthermore, the right candidate enjoys a high degree of responsibility and independence and have great management skills. You are detail oriented, possess a high level of accuracy, a multi-tasker and team player. Additionally, you possess that gut feeling and challenge status-quo and dare to ask questions in situations where “normality” might be out of order.

In addition, you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree or advanced degree in accounting, finance, or a related field; certification such as a Certified Public Controller (CPA with natural flare for numbers)
  • Minimum of 2 years’ experience as Financial Controller/Finance Manager
  • Strong analytical intellectual power and knowledge about economic correlations
  • Commodity based company experience or general understanding of hedging – experience within oil and stock hedging would be considered an advantage but not a requirement.
