Senior Business Controller for multinational medical device manufacturer


Humlebæk, DK

Job Family:  Finance
Country/Region:  Denmark

A worldwide producer and distributor of vital medical products needs a strong link between the long-term business goals and the everyday financial realities of operating – can you be that link?  


About the department
As our new senior business controller, you will join the Commercial Finance department, consisting of 14 colleagues. A part of the larger Finance department of Coloplast, our team is the bridge to the commercial and business support side of the organisation, providing reports, forecasts, insights, and analyses to senior management. We’re an enthusiastic and diverse group of people, ranging in age from the mid-20s to the 50s, with people from the US, Italy, Turkey, and Denmark. 


The job 
Your role will be as a financial business partner to the areas of the organisation spearheaded by our CFO & CEO, where you will be forming strong working relationships with stakeholders in Global IT, Legal & HR, Investor Relations and others. These teams are growing rapidly, and you will be the go-to-person from a financial point of view while also optimising our working processes. 

Besides continually improving our operational processes, you will have weekly, monthly and quarterly reoccurring tasks. In your day-to-day, you can therefore expect to be: 

  • Preparing and analysing cost and performance reports
  • Coordinating and conducting meetings and presentations with key stakeholders
  • Consolidating and presenting forecast input from the different departments to CFO
  • Overseeing finance optimisation and road map projects
  • Completing various ad hoc projects related to ongoing optimisation 


The opportunities
Commercial Finance is a dynamic team with a wealth of experience and expertise, and we make an effort to nurture an inclusive and mutually supportive workplace. You will have great colleagues to share knowledge with, as well as a high degree of flexibility and freedom to shape your own workday. As you will be heavily involved in developing our future work practices and be connected to several stakeholders, there is a level of complexity to the position. You will have the assistance and guidance you need in order to feel comfortable with your new role and its inherent intricacies. 


Good interpersonal and cooperative skills are critical to this position, as you will be working closely with key stakeholders, presenting and elaborating on business insights and analyses. It is important that you are able to work autonomously and can take the initiative, as you will not only be operating according to existing guidelines, but also be part of shaping and improving these going forward. 

In addition to the above, we expect that you: 

  • Hold a university degree within economics, finance, accounting, or a similarly relevant field of study
  • Have 7+ years of experience within business or cost controlling, preferably from a larger, international corporation
  • Are fluent in both spoken and written English


We will take candidates into the recruitment process continuously, so do not hesitate to apply. This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.


Pursuing an ambitious growth agenda, Coloplast develops and markets products and services that make life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs. Employing about 14.000 people and with products available in more than 143 countries, we are one of the world´s leading medical device companies. We are constantly growing our business and always looking for new ways to move forward – we explore, learn and look for new ways of doing things.


Coloplast is committed to being an inclusive organization, where people bring their differences to work each day, fulfil their potential and have a strong sense of belonging because – and not despite – of their differences. We therefore encourage all qualified candidates to apply regardless of gender, age, race, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious belief or physical ability.
