Building a Better Plant-Based Future together

Performance Management Controller

Are you an experienced Performance Management Controller who likes to take the lead and constantly questions the status quo? Do you have a clear vision on how to optimize cost control and continuously work on cost efficiency?  Are you ready to be hands-on when it matters? In this role you will be in the driving seat to help form our future finance organization in Germany.

About the Job 

When it comes to cost control and efficiency  we don’t want you to ask ‘Can I do this?” we need you to say: “This is what we need to do and this is how I will do it” and of course “Why do we need this?”

As our Performance Management Controller, you will work in a close-knit finance team in our Hamburg office, you report to the Head of Controlling and Performance Management. You are the driving force to help Upfield Germany meet their financial goals in the next years.

Perhaps you are currently working in an Assistant role or in a smaller company and you are looking for your next step and you want to be in the lead. You already know what it takes to build relationships within a company, and you know what it means to constantly be the person to say:” Do we really need to spend this money?” Sales & Marketing, HR and Operations you are the person they will turn to when it comes to spending money and if they do not turn to you, you will turn to them.

We don’t have to tell you what Performance Management Controlling entails, you are the professional and you’ve seen a thing or two in your career. What we can tell you is that working for us means that right now you have a blank canvas. You can set up processes, there are quick wins to have. You can build, transform and be in the deep of it. If job titles are important to you or you do not want to roll up your sleeves than we are probably not the right company for you. All of us are used to work on different levels. Take it it is yours – let’s fix what is broken is our mentality. If this is yours as well then, we definitely want to talk to you.

You are experienced in your field so we don’t need to tell you what experience is expected, but of course since you will be working with our team in German you need to speak German and English ,when dealing with your European colleagues.
