As a finance trainee at FrieslandCampina you will constantly be challenged. We need you to be proactive and you need to have the ability to persuade others. As a finance trainee, you will work on two different projects in two different roles within our finance departments. On the one hand, you can work in our financial shared services in which operational financial activities are being performed. On the other hand, you will have the possibility to work in a role in which you discover factors driving the business and explore in which direction the company should go to create more value.
Examples of assignments
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.
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.
