Examples of assignments


Commercial Controller 
As a commercial controller you will have two roles. First, you have the financial perspective, where FrieslandCampina expects you to be in control of the financials. This means understanding everything related to finance such as, the costs, profits, KPI's, cash flows, balance posts, overdues and translating this to understandable insights. Second, as commercial controller you work with marketing and sales departments on a daily basis. In this role, you are expected to be the financial business partner by providing strong financial insights, but also to challenge your marketing and sales colleagues to make the right decisions. The combination of these two parts makes it a diverse, analytical and challenging role.

Corporate Treasury 
In the Corporate Treasury role you work on day-to-day Treasury-related activities like cash and FX management while also playing a role in shaping strategic projects. In the latter, you get the opportunity to help implement processes and policies such as FX Hedging and Dividend Cycle Planning while also being able to take part in negotiations with banks and other external stakeholders.

A wide variety of trainings

"The traineeship offered a wide variety of trainings to work on my personal development and during the two years I learned a lot from my fellow trainees, trainers and coaches. This made the traineeship unique for me and added a lot of value compared to starting a regular job at the beginning of my career." - Thom Schuite, Category Finance Analyst in Hong Kong (former Finance Trainee)
