Head of Financial Planning & Analysis

Set the financial agenda for LEGO Education - and use your natural curiosity and drive to inspire proactive financial analyses that make a clear impact on the business.

Own and drive the financial agenda for LEGO Education

As our head of Financial Planning & Analysis, you will lead a team of 5 financial specialists - 4 in Billund, Denmark, and 1 in Boston, US. Our shared mission is to drive the financial agenda for LEGO Education, which includes providing financial analyses and insights, recommend actions as well as continuously developing the financial storyline for the business.

Joining our Finance Leadership Team, you will take on the overall responsibility for core financial deliveries and processes. Translating analyses into actionable recommendations, you ensure that we continue to add value to the business. In addition to leading your team on a day-to-day basis, you will design, execute and optimise:

  • Core financial processes such as budgets and financial estimates

  • The financial reporting platform

  • Activity-based costing analyses

  • The pricing process in the organisation

Join a value-driven organisation

LEGO Education delivers playful learning experiences to preschools, schools and afterschool programmes. We are based on the fundamental wish that we want every child to succeed. We believe that all children should reach their full potential by being an active participant in the learning experience.

Your team’s financial insight will be at the core of the decision-making processes that underline our overall purpose, and you will have a high impact on the business. Our values permeate through the entire value chain, tying together our efforts not only within the team but across the entire LEGO Education organisation.

Leadership experience and great financial insight

You are well-versed in leading a team of financial specialists, and you enjoy being an active member of the team. This is underlined by your natural curiosity which drives you to dive into detail and proactively analyse financial trends yourself. Having done just that, you know how to translate financial deliveries into insights, challenges and recommendations in a way that makes sense to and add value to the business.

To succeed in doing so, we imagine that you:

  • Have a master’s degree in economics

  • Have 5+ years of experience in a finance specialist function

  • Have 2+ years of leadership experience within the financial sector

  • Preferably have experience with SAP

  • Speak and write English effortlessly

Bringing it to life

“The role offers a very exciting opportunity to join a diverse and driven team. You will play a core role in terms of defining our financial agenda, and by converting financial data into insights, you will achieve a high impact on the business,” says Anne Katrine Jensen, head of Planning, Operation & Finance.

Join the global LEGO® family

In the LEGO Group, we succeed together, and you will be part of a global family where you can use your creativity and enjoy a fun working environment. We look forward to receiving your application. Please remember to attach your cover letter and a current CV in English.
