ACCOUNTANT (GENERAL LEDGER)


Job description
Most companies want you to join their finance function.
We need you to help create ours.

What you’ll love about being our General Ledger Accountant at A-Gas in Eygelshoven
You’ll be joining in a brand-spanking new role. Nobody’s resigned. Nobody’s left because they’re bored, underdeveloped or unfocused. Meaning your core strengths in transactional financial accounting will be put to full use. The rest of the role will be builtaround you. Leaving plenty of room for development.

You’ll be joining a team based on a site where a multi-million-euro CAPEX investment is being made. You’re going to get exposure to finance issues in a rapid growth, highly entrepreneurial environment.

You’ll work with our Finance Manager to develop a local approach to financial reporting and analysis, as we scale up the size of the site.

You’ll get the opportunity to help implement Great Plains accounting software. Some of this is partly in place. We want you to finish it. More importantly we’re going to encourage you to make some mistakes. We need you to learn, in preparation for a largertechnology project at a later date.

You’ll work with our SAP Finance Process Lead in the UK to implement SAP locally in the Netherlands. This is a global initiative. You’re going to play a key local role.

You’ll develop into a fully rounded finance professional with strong process development and projects experience. If you’re as ambitious as we think you are, then you’ll be ready to move into a Finance Manager position in the long-term.

What you’ll get in return
  • We offer a competitive starting salary, a good profit-related bonus scheme and a pension.
  • A definite contract, leading to an indefinite contract.
  • We value further education and encourage our team to add to their skills. You’ll get the opportunity to apply for study support if you want it.
  • We’ll invite you to annual events during the summer and at Christmas, as well as on-site socials.
  • You’ll join a supportive team-based environment, not just locally, but Europe-wide.
  • You’ll have a role brimming with challenge that’s going to stretch you in many ways.
  • You’ll open the door to global opportunities in a growing fast-paced environment.
Who you are
  • Since completing your Bachelor’s degree a couple of years ago, you’ve been putting theory into practice within a finance team.
  • You’ve built a solid couple of years transactional finance experience. You’re confident processing invoices and journal accounting. Junior members of the team often turn to you with questions.
  • You’ve had some experience of preparing the month-end closing process. Reporting on monthly and quarterly figures isn’t new to you. You often prepare the commentary to explain any variances.
  • You might have already had some experience of working in SAP or a similar ERP such as Oracle, Sage or Microsoft Dynamics.
  • You know you’ve more to offer.
  • The opportunity to re-engineer finance processes, implement new technologies and reduce financial errors is hugely appealing.
  • To do this as part of a much smaller finance team, in a high-growth and agile European environment makes this opportunity stand out as the right next step for you.
And who are we…?
We’re the European region of A-Gas, a global gases business with significant private equity backing. We have a market leading position and are growing globally. Our aim is to be the dominant player in reclamation refrigerants.

Today we’re represented across the globe with ambition to treble our current size in Europe over the next three years.

Which means huge opportunity for the people in our business. People like you.
