Overview:
At LOTS, the Finance & Controlling Department leads the financial planning processes as well as monitors the execution and fulfillment of the company’s business strategy. The department works in close integration with the management team, providing analysis, control and decision support. The company is steadily growing, and we are now looking for a global accounting executive to strengthen the reporting and accounting procedures together with our accounting service providers world-wide; today situated in Sweden and Brazil.                                                                                                                                                                     

The Position:
As a global accounting executive at LOTS, you would play a key role in the reporting and accounting procedures for our business. You will report to our CFO and work closely with all members of the finance team, our accounting service providers and finance system suppliers. You play an important role in helping the organization with its on-time reporting and implementation of sound accounting practices.The position is based at the LOTS Stockholm office, located in close vicinity to the central station. As we are a global organization, international travel is to be expected. You need to be comfortable working closely with key finance stakeholders as the role will occasionally require synching with clients and suppliers, sometimes on-site.At LOTS, our employees receive a high level of freedom and responsibility. As a LOTS co-worker you are expected to follow the processes and methods in place, but also to apply your own business sense, analytical abilities, leadership, interpersonal skills and good judgement to solve challenges and tasks for which no standard yet exists. The nature of being a young business forces – and allows – us to be exceedingly self-going and solution-oriented.Examples of work duties:
– LOTS Group monthly financial reporting and consolidation with Scania
– Monthly business reviews and accounting support of all operations
– Book closing activities – full balance sheet coverage and analysis
– Capitalization management for new businesses globally
– Finding, signing and managing accounting service providers globally
– Long- and short-term financial planning with our accounting service providers
– Upholding global accounting standards in the group, i.e. IFRS16 and similar
– General support to our CFO and regional finance heads

The Candidate:
Our ideal candidate thrives in a fast-moving environment and enjoys tackling new challenges. You see lack of specification as an opportunity to influence rather than a point of frustration and enjoy playing a part in getting LOTS to the next level. You like the fact that the company is young, with an entrepreneurial culture and ambitious colleagues.We believe that you have at least three to five years of previous experience from working as an accounting executive, accounting manager, accounting specialist, financial controller or similar with a rigorous understanding of accounting practices, global consolidation and book closing. You also have a good general business sense and find yourself quickly able to grasp what the key drivers are when examining new company setups, company consolidations, etc. Moreover, you either already are or aspire to be an Excel wizard; you find it strangely satisfying to build neat and clever spreadsheet models that complement business.
