What do you want to do?
In this dynamic position, you advise and support the management in the preparation of Planning & Control products.

For example, you may be asked to analyze the development of staff costs, or you may need to find coverage for an unforeseen cost item.

You translate this development into possible consequences and opportunities. In addition, you perform general activities within the planning and control cycle.

Who is our ideal candidate?
You enjoy connecting economic knowledge and people. Therefore, you have good advisory skills as well as knowledge and experience in the use of injury and injury instruments. You are naturally focused on collaboration and achieving results. You are proactive in your advice and do not care: you have a sense of administrative and political matters.

You have:

  • Bachelor in Business Administration / Accounting or similar area.
  • Several years of experience as a Plan & Control consultant (or similar position), preferably within a municipality.


  • Cooperation
  • Results orientation
