The company has sales teams on the ground in 10 countries around the world: The UK, US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Sweden, Norway, France, Germany and Ireland. Our offices are located in Stockholm, London, New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, Paris, Berlin, Dublin and Oslo.

About the role
 
We are now looking for a Group Financial Controller with specialist skills in Consolidation and IFRS to our team in Stockholm. We're a tight team who thrive together, we laugh a lot and are open and supportive of each other.
 
The Finance team in Stockholm, including Accounting, Business Controlling, Risk and Internal Control and Investor Relations, is currently a team of eleven persons. Consolidated financial statements are prepared according to IFRS standards, and the parent company according to RFR2, in quarterly and annual reporting.
 
The key responsibility is to lead the group consolidation work on delivering Interim Reports and Annual Reports working closely with the Director of Accounting, CFO and broader finance team and business stakeholders. Working with monthly consolidation and to be a support to all functions regarding Group accounting and reporting matters, also forms part of the role’s responsibility, including keeping our accounting policies in line with best practice. Another part is taking good care of our Transfer Pricing transactions and reporting as well as oversight of intercompany consolidation. In case of M&A this role will be heavily involved in the accounting and reporting matters that flow from such transactions.
 
Since the team is quite small there are also – from time to time - chances to get into the nitty-gritty daily tasks; keeping deadlines and helping getting reports delivered in good order . This is a team effort!
 
Considering the expansion phase Acast Group is in, the role is both to keep the good current standard, and to develop and adjust policies and reporting procedures to meet any changes that will arise. Here an understanding of developments in IFRS is important and the ability to implement these working with the relevant business stakeholders.
 
You will be working in our ERP system Netsuite, also for consolidation. Other internal systems are Balancer, Task Manager and Matcher, for book-keeping and monthly closing.
This role will report to the Director of Group Accounting.
 
First introduction will be held in the office, a beautiful space in the center of Stockholm, but it is expected from you to work from home, until we fully open the office for work again.
Who you are
 
·       At least five years’ experience from similar work in group accounting and Annual and Interim reporting, for a listed company
·       A relevant academic degree in Accounting, Economics or Finance
·       Detailed knowledge in IFRS accounting
·       Understanding of MAR
·       Having worked with Transfer Pricing and taxation 
·       Sense for details and thoroughness – as always in finance work
·       Curiosity of and interest in different accounting issues
·       Good Excel skills
·       Fluent in English
