Senior Group Financial Controller to LEO Pharma


A great opportunity to join a global organization, where you can contribute to the support and further development of Group Financial Reporting


If you want to use your solid experience within IFRS and Financial reporting, and if you enjoy working with continuous improvements in an international environment, then this role may be something for you.


Global Finance is in the middle of a strategy process, with the objective to move from a silo-structure to a stronger cross-functional collaboration and holistic mindset. Next to this, there is focus on changing and improving systems and processes. This affects Global Finance as a whole. In short, the transformation is intended to lead to a professional finance function that operates with high quality and business orientation.


In August 2020 it was announced that the LEO Foundation is considering sharing the ownership of LEO Pharma with other external investors. As part of Global Finance, you will play a significant role in this journey.


Development of a future external reporting set-up with high quality


Working alongside experienced colleagues, you will be an important player in the coming development of a future professional external reporting set-up. You will have a senior role and be responsible for running various highly exposed and exciting projects focusing on securing high quality and preparing for a potential listing of the company. You will join a team, where the roadmap for the coming year includes interesting projects, and where you will have a say about the execution of these.


We value a performance environment with equal parts of humor and professionalism, and where everyone contributes and supports each other in reaching our goals.


Primary responsibilities and tasks


  • Drive and be responsible for strategic- and development projects, e.g. M&A projects to ensure compliance with IFRS.
  • Participate in securing correct accounting of divestments and acquisitions.
  • Participate in developing a controlling set-up that ensures high quality in figures and reporting.
  • Develop LEO’s global financial reporting system SAP BPC, with attention to “as is” and drive improvements such as creating new accounts, building new reports etc.
  • Ensure IFRS compliance as part of a “Center of Excellence” regarding IFRS issues.
  • Prepare memo’s for external auditing.
  • Participate in developing the reporting set-up to the Audit Committee.
  • Participate in preparing consolidated accounts and Annual Report for the LEO Pharma Group in accordance with IFRS and Danish GAAP to the Management.
  • Financial controlling of subsidiaries.


Your profile   

We imagine that you hold a finance degree, such as M.Sc. in Auditing and bring a solid experience from a similar role in an international company. Furthermore, it is an advantage if you have experience with BPC Consolidation.


On a personal level, your positive, systematic and analytical way of working ensures that you strive to find the best solution to a process or a problem. You see the big picture, and you are also able to zoom in on details when required. You have drive and are motivated by solving both complex issues and daily “hands-on” tasks with high quality.    


You have a good sense of humor and a positive approach. Furthermore, you thrive in a change-oriented environment, where you take active part in establishing and optimizing processes, while at the same time delivering various tasks – sometimes with short deadlines.


It is important that you can work independently and take responsibility for your own tasks as well as run projects together with many different stakeholders.


Exciting career opportunities


You will become part of a highly dedicated team of three Group Controllers in Group Controlling and External Reporting located at LEO Pharma’s headquarters in Ballerup. The team is part of Global Accounting, Controlling and Tax.


We offer an interesting workplace with high professional standards. You will contribute to the financial communication internally as well as towards Management. For the right candidate LEO Pharma offers good career opportunities within the group depending on your expertise and interests.


We look forward to hearing from you!
