You will also contribute with your accounting expertise to ongoing projects in different areas. You are curious and don’t hesitate to embrace complex questions to gain an overall understanding. You are not afraid to take decisions, but you have a feeling for when anchoring is needed.

Within Group Accounting you will be part of a global and diverse team of skilled and high-performance professionals who work with passion and trust each other in an open and positive atmosphere with a lot of discussions and laughs.

Who are you:
You have an academic degree in accounting with a minimum of five years accounting experience preferably combined with consolidation experience. Experience from multi-cultural and global finance operations is a plus. You need to be proficient in accounting policy, preferable IFRS. Since the Volvo Group’s external reports are presented in both English and Swedish you need to be fluent in both languages, verbal and written.

You are positive, flexible, driven and you have a solution-oriented mindset. It is important that you are structured and well-organized and have excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
