Be smarter, think greener – join us!

Food production is bound to increase immensely in the coming years to keep up with growing populations all over the world – a 60% increase in production by 2050, to be exact.

It is our mission to make sure that our customers, food and agricultural companies around the world can meet this higher demand without sacrificing sustainable values. To be able to do so, we need to rethink our financial reporting processes and business set-up. And this is where you come in!

You will be joining us on an exciting financial journey, where you will get to influence your role as well as develop your skills as we grow and evolve


A skilled team in business symbiosis

You will be part of our Financial Operation and Support team consisting of 7 dedicated colleagues. Here, we are responsible for the business controlling and bookkeeping for the production as well as the R&D and IT departments.

Doing so, we work closely with both the Group Financial department and our colleagues at our sites in Poland, Hungary, and China. And you will be working alongside a very experienced support base, with people who are always ready to help and share their insights.

From business controlling to budgets and accounting

Your goal is to ensure an objective financial support function to our key stakeholders, where you assess the proposals and projects and the estimated financial effects.

This also means that you are charged with conveying the message of your assessment, making sure that everyone is on board with the complex analysis and numbers. By doing this, we help create value for the business, our production and our colleagues.

Some of your tasks also include that you:

• Carry out various reporting and analysis that support business optimization e.g., performance management and controlling projects

• Support and initiate analyses and processes that ensure a stable financial control, including highlighting risks and handling business cases

• Participate in weekly meetings with key stakeholders from e.g., the R&D department, ensuring that our reporting processes are followed and that their production set-up is profitable

• Assist with the implementation of our strategy and secure the realization of anticipated KPIs

• Maintain a close and constructive working relationship with our Shared Service Center, who handles our basic accounting responsibilities


Partners in sustainable global development

Here, you get the comfort in knowing that your hard work does actual good in the world, as we are continuously working towards supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

To reach those goals, we are actively involved in the UN Global Compact to ensure that we are always on track. We are also members of SEDEX, which means that we allow independent audits of our supply chain every 2-3 years, guaranteeing that we uphold the highest standards in labor rights, health & safety, environmental impact and business ethics.

People and knowledge

People and knowledge. That has been one of our core values since FOSS’ inception 65 years ago. We are always looking for talent, and we are more than ready to nurture it.

Maybe you are looking to perfect your craft, maybe you want to develop your leadership abilities – whatever it is, if you have the potential and the determination, we have the resources to help you succeed.


Are you an ambitious and attentive controller with a detail-oriented mindset?

If so, you can see yourself in the following qualifications:

1 You have 3+ years of experience as a business controller – and you are ready for new challenges

2 You are a superuser of MS Office – and if you have knowledge of ERP systems, it is an advantage

3 You preferably have some insight into transfer pricing – a plus, but not a must

4 You speak and write Danish fluently, as well as English at a professional level

All applications for vacant positions will be welcomed and will be considered on the relative merits of the applicant against the role profile for the position regardless of nationality, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, parental responsibilities, age, religion, or belief.
