  • As a team, you manage the entire financial control cycle, VAT, corporate compliance (i.e. SEC requirements), and reporting on entity, country, and group level
  • The responsibilities of the Financial Control team are divided in topics, such as stock, turnover, assets, etc.
  • Each Financial Controller owns  several topics as process owner (rotating over time)
  • Being the liaison for your country’(s) also includes guiding the local external audit
  • Due to the recent public listing and the fast growth trajectory, there is a lot of room for improvement and professionalization. This results in various (strategic) projects, both underway and to be started
  • You are the financial business partner for the Managing Director(s) of your dedicated country('s) and the go-to person for all finance related matters

Good to know

With impressive growth figures over the last couple of years (between 2017 and 2020, the company's turnover doubled every year), Allego is well on its way to achieve its ambitious goal to a turnover of € 1,2 Billion in 2026. The enormous increase is possible due to the expected strong increase in the number of electric cars. But also, Allego has been backed up  by investors due to the listing (through a SPAC) on the NYSE in March 2021.

As a result of these exiting developments, a lot of projects will come your way. Think of financially setting up new countries, automation projects (AR, AP, system integrations), IFRS reporting, improved financial reporting and and the digitalization of VAT filing. Other projects are related to tooling, for example the implementation of Lucanet, SEC filing set up and optimizing the usage of Dynamics.
