INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE PROGRAMME - BROADVIEW HOLDING Opportunity for master’s graduates (Finance, Accounting and Control, Financial Management and related subjects) to become part of our group. Our business is only sustainable if we are able to convert sales growth into higher profits and cash. This requires a keen eye on financial performance and the proper safeguarding of our reporting requirements. Finance helps companies steer their businesses properly and identify opportunities for improvement. In addition to this, our financial professionals are responsible for all of the group’s external financial reporting. We see that our young talents play an important role in implementing new solutions for monitoring financial performance and bringing our internal controls and financial reporting to the next level. In this way, we can develop and monitor financial improvements and promote discussions with decision makers in different departments, from purchasing, R&D and production to sales and marketing. This requires organizational skills and analytical power to manage improvement projects and safeguard compliance with reporting requirements. Almost every finance job requires problem-solving skills, and some of your day-to-day tasks involve understanding complex problems. We highly appreciate the ability young talents have to analytically challenge our current way of working.
