Fullständig jobbeskrivning

Are you ready for taking Epista’s Finance Team to the next level?

We are looking for someone to help us manage the everyday logistics at Epista Sweden – are you the one?

Epista Life Science is expanding, and we need an experienced accountant allocated to our Swedish business based in Lund. We are a consultancy dedicated to continuously improving compliance and business in the Life Science industry. Since 2009, we have grown to nearly total 200 hard-working and fun-loving team members in several countries, with big ambitions for the future. Our team is our superpower – and we want you to be part of it.

Since Epista is growing constantly, this position will be a key role in building up the financial team in Sweden – this means, you will play an inspirational and important part in this growth.

You might be the only one with this function in Sweden for now, but your colleagues in the Corporate Finance team in our Copenhagen office are ready to guide you whenever needed – and our CFO (who is also Swedish) is just a Teams-click away when not present in the office.

Being great at planning and prioritizing, as well as respecting the importance of deadlines is required. We are looking for someone who is curious and motivated by areas for development and can fit into the dynamic environment of our office – with the flexibilty of working from home.

You’ll be responsible for a variety of tasks ranging from daily bookkeeping to expense and travel management to VAT reconciliation.

For this position we will only be considering candidates residing in Sweden, as well as being eligible to work in Sweden.

It´s about who you are – Important for us is not only the required skillset, but also that you’re a good cultural fit for the Epista Team. That’s why we are looking for a perfect match who:

  • Thrive working independently but also know when to ask for guidance and assistance
  • Are structured and detail-oriented
  • Take pride in delivering good results
  • Are service-minded and positive
  • Enjoy working in dynamic entrepreneurial environments where decision and execution go hand-in-hand
  • Work well in a “professionally relaxed” environment

Your required qualifications:

  • You have at least 5 years of experience within finance in a Sweden-based company
  • Comfortable working with Microsoft office
  • Swedish and English are a must. Understanding Danish is an advantage.
  • Bonus: Experience from a consulting business

Your primary assignments will be within Finance, including:

  • Daily bookkeeping and monthly invoicing
  • Period closing – monthly, yearly
  • VAT reconciliation
  • Bank & cash reconciliation
  • Reconciliation of financial accounting
  • Salary administration
  • Expense and travel management
  • Pension reporting

Note: We use TimeLog as time registration tool and FortNox for bookkeeping, accounting and salary administration. Prior knowledge of these specific tools is not a requirement, and we will provide the necessary training.

You’ll also be helping our team with office and sales support. We don’t require any experience in this area, but just that you are a flexible, self-starter who is willing to learn. These tasks could include:

  • Assist management and consultants with sales related material (setup & printing)
  • Participate in optimization of work processes
  • Organize company events & gifts
  • Manage office supplies

What you’ll love about us is that Epista is a team of pioneers. As a part of the team, you’ll have the chance to experience the entrepreneurial atmosphere of our rapidly growing company. On our team you can profit from the following benefits:

  • Atmosphere: Great company culture
  • Learning: Individual onboardings & trainings
  • Flexibility: Remote working possibilities
  • Future: Development & growing opportunities
  • Additional: Social events & gatherings

Furthermore, our unique team spirit makes a positive impact – on our clients and the Life Science industry. Here, you’re never alone. We all work together for everyone’s success. And each individual is strengthened by the knowledge of the group.

We’re proud to be Epista, for good reason. If you’re the cream of the crop, are you ready to join us?
