Every day, #peopleofdelaware help our customers take their companies to the next level and work to make them future-proof.
With more than 1500 colleagues based in Belgium & Luxembourg, delaware can count on a team of highly competent Financial Controllers.

On a day-to-day basis, delaware’s Financial Controllers are tasked with overseeing accounting functions, integrating finance operations, forecasting and budgeting and so on. They play an important role. You see, based on the team’s financial insights and reporting, certain strategic decisions will be made. Never underestimate the power of numbers!

We’re looking for an experienced Financial Controller who can join us in providing management with all financial support and information needed. Could that be you?

What will you be doing?

As a part of our internal team, you will be working together with your colleagues mainly in Kortrijk or in Ghent.
We are a very close bunch who like to bond over lunch, at the coffee machine, or during fun team activities.

As a Financial Controller, you and your colleagues are the go-to-persons for this broad range of things : 

  • Your main focus will be on project and solution controlling & reporting tasks such as margin analysis, project risks evaluation, actuals vs budget analysis, sales price analysis, forecasting… but next to that, you will also assist the business with ad hoc requests. Variety is guaranteed!
  • You’ll take ownership of a number of dedicated reports and processes during closing and provide financial support and information during budget rounds.  
  • You will also be involved in project accounting to guide our Project Managers through the different processes:
    • Advice & Quality Check on Project Setup
    • Creation of Purchase Orders
    • Quality Check on Billing Proposal
    • Controlling: follow up Ageing WIP and Outstanding Receivables
  • You’ll act as the point of contact for our business when they require financial services. This involves helping them to interpret or analyse KPI reporting, delivering insights, suggesting improvements,…

Is there a match?

  • We’re looking for someone with at least a first experience, this could be in controlling but we are open to hearing from you if you have experience in accounting and auditing too. Or maybe you’re an SAP FICO consultant, eager to switch to an internal role? Either way, experience in a controlling or audit function is crucial. If you already know your way around in SAP, that’s a definite plus.
  • Ideally you’ve acquired your finance skills at university: do you hold a Master’s degree in Business / Applied Economics, Corporate Finance, or Business Engineering?
  • Do you combine strong analytical skills with a keen interest in financial matters? Producing financial reports has become second nature to you.
  • Are you a result oriented and IT minded team player? You’re a go-getter who regularly aligns with colleagues. You are a (wo)man with a plan!
  • Would you say you have excellent communication skills? You express yourself fluently in English and Dutch or French.
  • Do our company values appeal to you? We take care of our employees and customers, we are committed, enterprising and respectful, and we do everything based on a sense of positive team spirit.
