At Mercedes-Benz Cars, we’re passionate about what we do. Whether we’re exploring ways to make motoring more sustainable, or pushing the boundaries of technology, innovation underpins everything we do.
How you’ll play your part
We’re looking for someone passionate and proactive, who understands the value of process efficiency, to take ownership of the service contracts across MBC and MBV providing valuable and comprehensive support to our Accounting and Controlling teams. You’ll develop autonomy in your role, taking ownership of the completion of the monthly group financial reporting process, including preparation and posting of service contract income and expenses for both MBC and MBV, and key balance reconciliations within MBAG deadlines and requirements ensuring that all accounting complies with IFRS standards.
We’re passionate about data-driven decision making, and your contribution will be key. You’ll develop a philosophy of continuous process improvement with a commitment to get things done. You’ll be able to confidently apply your knowledge and ability to manipulate and analyse large amounts of data as you take ownership of the customer service financial systems, including data quality maintenance and liaison on software rollout/upgrade requirements. Partnering with the business and IT, you’ll ensure the system complies with all accounting standards.
You’ll apply your strong problem solving and troubleshooting skills to review and report the monthly management accounts for the Parts & Service Contracts business, applying knowledge of the business operations and understanding the accounting principles behind the result.
At Mercedes-Benz Cars, we operate with integrity and therefore you are required to maintain ethical standards in accordance with Daimler AG Policies and the Company's Compliance Guidelines and Policies including Anti-Bribery and all relevant competition law.
What’s in it for you
As well as the opportunity to work in a fast-paced environment, with a great team and culture, we’ll offer you a competitive salary and discretionary bonus structure. We also hope you’ll love our products as much as we do, with access to our colleague car schemes. On top of that, you’ll be able to join our pension scheme and you’ll get a flexible benefit pot that can be used to find the benefits that are right for you. We are pleased to be able to offer a hybrid working approach – achieving a great balance between remote and office working.
We’re here to support you – we offer access to colleague wellbeing resources, including an Employee Assistance Programme and Mental health First Aiders, as well as flexible opportunities to support work life balance. We’ll also encourage your development, with the training and knowledge you need to reach your potential.
