Everything in our business is connected, because every decision ultimately shows up as a reference in the accounting books. These different threads all come together in our department, but our range of responsibility is not solely tied to numbers. We develop Group-wide IFRS guidelines, provide support in their execution, take part in international projects, and cover operational accounting activities. We are also responsible for the preparation of Entity and Group Financial Statements from a specialist and technical point of view.
"I enjoy working in a very diverse team, because we have different traditions, different views, different ideas and opinions - that makes it very dynamic and interesting."
