Profile & competencies

Hard Skills


  • Good knowledge of French accounting and IFRS.
  • Knowledge of insurance accounting would be a significant plus.


Basic knowledge of SQL.

Soft skills/ Behavioural traits


  • We handle topics that involve numerous stakeholders and that are vital to the company. We are therefore looking for someone able to
  • Take ownership of concrete topics and drive them from start to finish
  • Know when to involve additional stakeholders for input and support


The Finance team is small (6 people) and efficient. We are looking for a highly motivated individual who can balance and prioritise between different stakeholders both within the team and various external stakeholders.

Out of the box thinking

We don't do things one way because everyone does it that way. We always try to take a step back and think about how we can do things differently, better.
