You will have a chat with your colleagues and team, get relaxed, get focussed and prepare to smash your day.  We have operations in seven different countries (Ire, UK, Den, Swe, Neth, Nor & Fra) so we would love if you were familiar with local reporting requirements, but if not don’t be deterred we can show you the ropes. You will also be interested in mergers & acquisitions as we have an acquisition strategy in the region and your passion, skills and wizardry will be leveraged. On a daily basis you are going to be responsible for revenue assurance and reporting, alongside reviewing monthly management accounts.
