Your impact

  • Monthly closing process –  The Financial Planning & Control team is responsible for the monthly closing process whereby the monthly results are analyzed and challenged, by which they can be presented to our management. You will contribute by e.g. reviewing and ensuring correct recording of marketing expenses which are made by the various departments in order to promote our brands and increase the number of bookings.
  • Budget and Forecast process – Within our team we are coordinating together with our colleagues from Business Control, the budget and monthly forecast process. In addition to coordination within the Finance team, this requires also interaction with the business to understand the market developments and latest expectations. Specifically, due to the severe impact of Covid-19 on the travel industry recently, strong insights in the forecasts are essential. You will provide the latest insights in order to sharpen the latest forecast.
  • Business analysis – You will support the Finance team with improved business insights, both upon request from the business as on own initiative. The growth spirit of Sunweb and the overall business dynamics require the need to provide continuous insights in the latest developments of the business. Within this role, you can contribute significantly by providing ad hoc insights on data by means of creating clear analysis (supported by Excel).
  • Continuous improvements – As Financial Planning & Control team we are responsible for preparing various internal and external reporting. Together with the team, you support creating improved insights which support the various stakeholders. Furthermore, you will be involved in projects around the improvement of internal control policies, guidelines, and procedures for different financial activities.

Next to the above, there are several other areas in which you can contribute to the team depending on your personal strength and ambitions.
