Risk Controller - analyse and advise during finance transition - Deloitte
What do you do?
Deloitte NL is in the midst of creating a new set up for the Finance department, a transformation that is focussed on creating more synergy between the different teams, to create (more) added value for the internal finance structure. In light of this transition, this new position as Risk Controller is created, in which you will be the right hand of the Senior Risk Controller. The Risk team reports directly to the CFO and is considered a trusted business advisor, because of their cornerstone role within supporting both the business and finance.
As part of the Risk team, your main focus is managing, optimizing and advising on the Internal Control framework. You will support the process of enhancing the internal control framework in accordance with applicable requirements, based on the maturity and evolution of the company. The areas you will review and advise on will be related but not limited to financial reporting, segregation of duties / roles & security, including tax controls. Together with the Senior Risk controller you set up the In Control Statement (ICS), the core of the ICS is accountability for the operation of the controls. You will highlight potential consequences or risks, so that these can be eliminated or reduced in order to meet the quality standards and risk appetite.
Furthermore, you will identify potential risks, as a result of changes in laws and regulations, and proactively come up with suggestions to adapt the internal controls and processes accordingly.
Good to know...
As the Risk Controller, you will proactively review the current controls, whilst collaborating with your colleagues from different teams while always looking for opportunities to improve the processes and make it more efficient. One day you will advise your colleagues on complex IFRS topics, the other day you will have a meeting with your colleague from HR or Procurement to review the current internal controls and consult on appropriate adjustments, because of changes in regulations. The overall transition within the Deloitte NL Finance team generates different (ad hoc) projects, such as setting up new deliverables across the teams and optimization of the S/4HANA and Blackline workflows.
Who are you?
You are accurate, dedicated and very communicative. Someone who thrives in an international, dynamic environment. Always able to work on a detail-oriented level, but never losing sight of the big picture. You enjoy being the liaison for multiple stakeholders and having a diverse set of responsibilities.
“Deloitte is a dynamic, fast-paced and multicultural environment, it’s our intention to be “best in class” in everything we do. This requires everyone to be very eager and aim for the best.
