Would you like to join a growing leading Nordic Media Company?

Blocket and Schibsted Nordic Marketplaces (NMP) are looking for a driven and experienced Business Controller to join our Nordic FP&A team.

In NMP we are currently in a very exciting change process. As industry trends show increased vertical specialisation, we have made the bold decision to join forces across the Nordics and become Nordic specialists within each of our verticals: Recommerce, Real estate, Mobility and Jobs. On 1 January 2023, we went live with our new Nordic organisation where we are organised around our verticals across Nordics rather than around our countries. This ensures that the verticals have the autonomy and strength to deliver the best solutions to the market, just like the vertical specialists we compete with.

Our marketplaces have unique and strong positions as market leaders, with DBA and Bilbasen in Denmark, FINN in Norway, Blocket in Sweden, and Tori and Oikotie in Finland. Together we make up Nordic Marketplaces in Schibsted, collectively connecting millions of buyers and sellers every month. Whether you want to buy a car, a new home, find a job or want a pair of new shoes, you can turn to us.

In this role you will drive various financial processes and projects across NMP and be a business partner to selected functions.
You will prepare decision material for managers, presentations, management reporting and business plans.

  • Drive and contribute to financial processes such as Rolling forecast, Target and Long Term Plan
