You will be working in a challenging environment where no two days are the same. Additionally, Lineage places a high priority on your personal growth and development. We believe it is important for you to grow as an individual. Therefore, we provide the space and support for you to develop yourself. In close consultation, we will determine together how to best arrange your contract hours.

Furthermore, this position offers you opportunities to advance to departments such as Control and/or FP&A within the Lineage organization.

  • You take responsibility for the general ledger and ensure that entries are made in accordance with relevant accounting rules.

  • You look for improvements in efficiency and the reliability of the records.

  • You assist with the year-end closing and the annual audit by the external accountant.

  • You file several VAT returns.

  • You maintain one or more personnel-related bookings such as vacation day provisions, personnel hiring costs, and the in-and out-lending of personnel to other Lineage entities.

  • You oversee the intercompany reconciliations for your entities and take responsibility for a portion of them.

  • You ensure that entries and balances of general ledger accounts are documented and that general ledger accounts are actively managed.

Who are we looking for?

  • At least HBO (higher professional education, Bachelor level).

  • 1-10 years of relevant work experience

  • Knowledge of automated (financial) data processing

  • Extensive knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel)

  • Knowledge of Workday Finance is a plus

  • You need to be within commuting distance of Rotterdam

You fulfil your job accurately and in a structured manner. You are an enthusiastic, eager-to-learn colleague who takes initiative. You work independently, but you also thrive in a team environment. You can express yourself well in English, both in writing and verbally.
