Finance / Internal control manager

Vlieland is known for its beautiful nature, peace and quiet, freedom and the authentic lively Dorpsstraat. Tourism is the main source of livelihood. The island is visited by about 220,000 tourists every year. However, Vlieland is also a small community with about 1,200 inhabitants. The mono-economy (tourism) provides a constant challenge to find a good balance between housing / life and recreation / economy. The municipality is financially sound and wants to be. Sustainability and quality of life are important administrative themes.
