This scale-up based in Rotterdam is looking for a new assistent controller. The organization is internationally active, providing solutions for the construction of – for example – off-shore constructions and infrastructure projects.  This company is innovative, creative and ambitious and wants to attract people who have the same drive. As the company grows fast, this means it is a dynamic environment. This is perfect for people who like to think out of the box, and initiate change and progress. The people in the organization are described as nice, social and open-minded, which means there is always someone to help you or listen to your ideas. Within this organization you can shape your role and do more than your job description. This means that if you are someone who asks questions and takes initiative, this is a good fit for you.


As an assistent controller you will be the right hand of the financial controller. You will be responsible for a correct and smooth-running financial administration process, which you deliver together with the financial administrator. Your responsibilities include the accounts receivables and payables, the hour administration and invoicing and salary and tax administration. Furthermore, you generate ad-hoc and periodical financial reports. You also facilitate the monthly closing process. Due to your pro-active attitude and critical view, you are also continuously looking to improve processes and optimize your tasks. You will become part of a team of one business controller, a financial controller and a financial administrator. There is also a financial advisor with lots of experience who coaches and helps you and the team and whom you can learn a lot from.


  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Accounting, Business Economics or equivalent
  • 1 to 4 years of relevant working experience with a Dutch financial administration
  • Familiar with accounts payable and receivable processes
  • Working knowledge of Excel
  • Fluent in Dutch and English


As an assistent controller you will receive a monthly salary between € 2.800 and € 3.600 gross. You get 25 vacation days and a holiday allowance of 8% a year. Your overtime hours are compensated by either extra pay or extra free days, whichever you prefer. There is a chef who prepares a tasty and healthy lunch every day for free. You can receive a travel cost compensation up to 19 euros a day. This organization does not offer a pension plan, as they find that every one should choose for themselves what they want to invest their money in. There is a pension advisor who can advise you how to save for your retirement. After your first year, you get a permanent contract and a one time extra € 1.000 to spend on your pension plans (or otherwise). When you join this organization you will become part of an open, young, diverse and ambitious group of people. There are many internal workshops to help you with your personal and professional development. Also, this organization organizes a company trip for the whole company each year!


Are you the person I am looking for? I’m looking forward to your application.
