Oversee and control Codit's daily operations

Over the past few years Codit has grown from an organization with 6 mio € revenue and presence in 3 countries (Belgium (HQ), France and Portugal), to an organization with a revenue of about 15 mio € and a presence in 7 different countries European countries (Belgium (HQ), France, Portugal, Switzerland, UK, The Netherlands, Malta). This evolution of our organization has been a result of strong organic growth and a merger.

The current size of the Codit business requires us to further invest in the operational and financial management. The Group Financial controller will help the CEO in managing financial reporting and professionalize the financial processes..

In FY2016 Codit substantially invested in the migration from accountancy system and the creation of a Codit Finance & Accounting manual with Financial Reporting. This new way of working has been implemented in Belgium and needs to be rolled-out/fine-tuned in all other Codit countries.
