Ready to become a forerunner enabling Neste in developing world-class finance processes?

We are looking for a

Finance Process Development Team Lead

to join our newly established Finance Development in Espoo, Finland.

Your part in Neste journey

It is a great time to join us!

Digitalization and process automation are a few of the big buzzwords that are also creeping into the world of Finance and reshaping the way we think and act as finance professionals. Neste is no exception to this and we have recently embarked upon a journey where we want to make a triple jump in the way we operate in Finance becoming an even more value adding partner to our businesses.

In your role, you will

  • Be pivotal in enabling Neste Finance organization (covering Group Accounting & Services, Planning & Control, Treasury & Risk Management) in working smarter and more efficiently to support our businesses
  • Define the development agenda with a focus on Finance Process Development and Automation
  • Build and coach a team of Process Development and Automation professionals to enable the change
  • Work closely with Process Owners in defining Development Areas
  • Promote Process Development trainings and concepts to Neste Finance organization

In this position you will get a front row seat to oversee the development of all key processes of a finance organization. Given the fact that this team has only recently been established, you will be in an excellent position to determine its agenda and way of working.

Keys to success in this role

The best combination of experiences, skills and background is

  • MSc (or similar higher university degree) in Finance, Accounting or Business Administration
  • Solid experience from Finance Processes (preferably +10 years of experience from multiple Finance work areas)
  • Background in management position (+3 years)
  • Process Development training (e.g. Lean Six Sigma) seen as an advantage, but not pre-requisite
  • Successful track-record in managing complex development projects with multiple stakeholder groups
  • Ability to persuade and lead people into new ways of operating and embracing a mindset of continuous development
  • Past experience from working with SAP seen as clear advantage

We also value

  • A pragmatic and “doer” attitude - this new team needs to earn its right to exist by clearly demonstrating value add
  • A forward-looking mindset where you strive towards a longer term vision by establishing clear an actionable milestones and targets
  • Ability to think in “E2E terms” also beyond the Finance process area - success requires the ability to influence processes also beyond Finance core processes
  • Keeping the customer in mind - Experience in design thinking seen beneficial as development is also to lead to a good end-user experience
  • Earlier experience from Process Analytics (e.g. Celonis, Fluxicon) and/or process Automation (e.g. UiPath, Blue Prism) seen as a benefit

Reaping the business benefits of process development work is never easy, but if you have a resilient mindset and a natural tendency to build networks around you and rally people you would have a good starting point for this role. A certain tech savviness is also needed for you to be able to also identify and build recommendations based on proven data points.

In accordance, we believe in people who find new ways of doing things – people for whom safety and sustainability are part of their professional skills. Customer mindset is essential to all of us at Neste and we work hard to find the best solutions for our customers. We believe everyone is a leader and share a natural desire for collaboration. If all this, as well as our values on responsibility, cooperation, innovation and excellence resonate with you, you are the talent we are looking for.
