Your mission: Enable sustainable value creation

You will be finance business partner towards our internal marketing agency which is developing our global marketing campaigns and marketing materials. As a part of this, you will lead the financial processes and drive the financial agenda in close collaboration with the leadership team in LEGO Agency. Another core responsibility is to conduct analyses on our marketing spend and effectiveness and prepare funding recommendations for our current and future marketing investments - in effect, managing highly confidential data.

  • You have finance business partner experience
