    We are looking for a talented Financial Accountant to join Sympower's Finance team where you will be involved in a broad range of activities across several different countries.

    As our organisation is growing rapidly (currently 80+ people - expected to double in the next 12-18 months) we need to further professionalise our finance department. The next major steps are to bring financial processes in-house, to go live in our new accounting / ERP platform (NetSuite) and to further grow the finance team. We have a relatively small finance team, so you will be involved in a broad range of accounting activities across different countries.

    Let's build the future of energy systems together!
