How you'd explain your job at a party

I do financial analyses, so that I can give our board and management information and advice to help them make strategic and operational decisions

What you'll be doing

Sound finances are important to every organisation. And we're no exception. That's why we need you. Because your financial analyses can help us make the right strategic and operational decisions. Sound decision-making is vital to our mission: connecting people and organisations to promote safe and convenient digital living. You have a real talent for analysing, developing and improving financial information and data sources, and using them to give valuable input and advice. You also take a keen interest in market trends and developments, enabling you to make well-informed forecasts. Reliable operational and financial reporting is another of your strengths; you're no stranger to business cases and management reports, for example. You're at home with internal project management, and with risk and performance management as well. And that's why you're the person who can help us grow! Your professionalism and customer focus will be reflected in the way that you:

  • Support the board and management with all matters involving data and information, and assure the completeness and accuracy of the data and information provided

  • Ensure proper cost and progress reporting

  • Support the formulation and analysis of tender calculations

  • Provide insight into financial and operational risks and promote risk-return analysis

  • Take responsibility for bedding down risk management measures and undertaking or arranging checks to verify that the measures are working

  • Optimise internal systems and processes

What we want

At Connectis and SIDN, you'll be working for reliable, innovative employers. Being an independent, proactive person, you don't hesitate to take on responsibility. After all, you too want to see a secure and reliable internet go on delivering value to Dutch society. And, as a team player, you recognise the importance of communicating and sharing your financial knowledge within the Finance and Control team. Another of your qualities is the ability to genuinely connect with people from a variety of other departments, levels and disciplines. You also have:

  • At least a higher vocational qualification in Economics or Business Management Studies

  • Preferably university, postdoctoral training in Register Control, Econometrics, Science or similar

  • 4 years' experience in a dynamic and innovative working environment

  • Excellent command of Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint

  • Very good command of both Dutch and English

About us

SIDN, in full the Foundation for Internet Domain Registration in the Netherlands, is an independent organisation that manages the .nl domain. In 2017, we joined forces with Connectis to reinforce the market for digital identities as well.Connectis supplies software and ID tokens for secure access to public and private services. There's more to domain name registration and secure log-ins than you might expect. We therefore have a team of 150 people dedicated to ensuring that the Dutch internet is as secure and trustworthy as possible. Some are based in Arnhem, others in Rotterdam.

Take a look at the missions and visions of SIDN and Connectis for a fuller picture of who we are and what we stand for. At SIDN and Connectis, you'll see more jeans and tee-shirts than sharp suits. It's a setting where you can be yourself. And there's always something going on: family days, Christmas dinners, sports days, barbecues and even weekends away together. Join in or do your own thing; it's fine either way. Maybe we'll see you soon?

What you can expect

At SIDN, you'll be working at the heart of the Dutch internet. Your role will involve a lot of contact both with SIDN's CFO and with Connectis's management team, building close working relationships. So your time will be divided across two sites. You'll spend four days a week at Connectis's offices in Rotterdam. Plus at least one day a week in Arnhem, working within SIDN's Finance and Control team.

Connectis's offices in Rotterdam are well served by public transport. Rotterdam Central Station is less than five minutes' walk. SIDN's offices are easy to reach by car from the A12 motorway. Coming by public transport? We're about twenty minutes from Arnhem Central Station by bike, or you can get the bus heading for IJsseloord 2.

Pay and other benefits

We're not secretive about things like pay and holidays. Why would we be? After all, SIDN and Connectis offer really good packages. So we're happy to put our cards on the table. And we're not just talking about the little perks, like great coffee whenever you want it and a supply of fresh fruit for dipping into. We're confident that the pay and extras you'll get as business controller will put a smile on your face. Take a look for yourself:

Everything above is for a 38-hour week. You can work longer hours if you like. If you opt for a 40-hour week, you get thirteen extra days' leave.
