What your day would look like

The market for electric cars is growing rapidly and with that comes an increase in the need for smart-charging solutions. Zaptec is a Norwegian world-leading company in this type of solution, and with its in-house developed products has taken solid market shares both in Norway and abroad. The company is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange under the ticker ZAP.

In connection with the company’s growth and development, the complexity of the company has also increased, and the finance function is facing an exciting development to ensure that the management model, processes, and reporting reflect the rest of the organization. To meet the increased complexity, we are now looking for a new employee who will play a central role in the company’s journey forward and be involved in large parts of the finance function.

  • Other tasks within the finance team

Is this you?

To thrive as our new Group Controller, we believe you have a good overall understanding of the finance function in a larger company, and have a relevant background or competency. Further, we think you are motivated by improvements, are result-oriented, and  are concerned with progress.
