As a Group Accounting Specialist you will be working with the regular monthly, quarterly and annual closings of the books for Swedbank Group. The work also contains the reporting of the numbers which quarterly include Interim report and FINREP. You will be a consolidation and reporting expert of group numbers.
Since there are a lot of changes in reporting requirements both driven by IFRS related changes and changes in regulations initiated by EBA and other regulatory authorities, there is a constant change dimension in the work. You will monitor and interpret new reporting requirements and take an active part in communicating the changes to stakeholders in the group.
The monthly, quarterly and annual closings of the books include work with preparing group entries/journals, elimination of internal transactions, currency conversion together with follow up and monitoring of the numbers for Swedbank Group. We are now searching for an expert in the consolidation area with deep knowledge of equity reconciliations and experience from changes in group structures such as acquisitions, sales and mergers.
The reporting requirements constantly change and the work is also to a large extent about managing changes. The Group Chart of Accounts should be updated, new accounts should be mapped to different reports, changes should be implemented (together with technical experts) in our consolidation system Cognos Controller and communication to different stakeholders within the Group should be carried out. However the first step in the work with change is interpreting new regulations and requirements and here you will take an active part.
There is also a time factor in the closing and reporting work. We work against deadlines. We set reporting schedules which mainly takes off from external reporting deadlines.What you need to succeed
For this position we see that you have an academic background and at least five years of experience from consolidation.
We want you to be a driven and solution oriented team player who likes to work with change and can combine ongoing responsibilities with ad-hoc questions. You have good communication skills both spoken and written. You are furthermore interested in economic relationships and have the ability to explain them in a straightforward manner.What you may have worked with previously
I have been working for Swedbank and with group accounting for nearly 19 years now. Although I have been working in the same area for many years I cannot say that each year has been the same. I've got a university degree in business administration and also in teaching.
I like change and new challenges and especially when it comes to dealing with them together with my colleagues. The fact that we are working with cyclically recurring tasks and fixed time lines promote good and tight team work. We must pull together in order to reach the finish line and achieve our goals.
We help each other in the team and as a manager I'm involved in our tasks and participating in the daily work. I offer support and help and appreciate when my team members act in the same spirit. For some years now we have actively worked with job rotation in order to promote knowledge sharing and back up plans. However this is still an improvement area which I strongly support.
So if you are a person with a good sense of thoroughness who likes to work against time lines and finds it inspiring to face changes, please send us your application.
We may begin the selection under the application period, so we welcome your application as soon as possible.
