Are you the cost accountant we can count on? 

While ‘dynamic’ and ‘variety’ appear as clichés in many job vacancies, they are none the less appropriate for this job.

The work calls for flexibility and cooperation between team members. You are helpful, and concerned not just for your own results but also for those of your colleagues, in a collaborative approach. 

  • You are a pragmatic self-starter with strong analytical skills, able to take a helicopter view. You have the intelligence to distinguish important from secondary issues, to see logical connections quickly, to ask the right questions and to listen. 
  • With a talent for planning and organising, you can prioritise in an effective, targeted way. You use your time efficiently, and you make the best use of the available resources.
