Scantox Group is looking for a Business Controller to support the Executive Group Management Team (EGMT) and the Board of directors with executing the ambitious growth plans in a high pace environment.

The right candidate will play a central role in supporting the strategic development and be closely involved in implementing projects and processes throughout the organization.

Scantox Group is the leading contract research company within preclinical research in the Nordic region. The company is within the Life Science industry and conducts studies for the pharmaceutical industry (pharma / medico / biotech), thus playing an important role in the development of new medicines.

Our head office is located in Ejby, Lille Skensved close to Køge currently employing approx. 130 staff who all have a wide range of skills and educational backgrounds. In addition, Scantox has two subsidiaries in Sweden. Scantox was founded in 1977 and has an ambitious growth strategy in partnership with the company’s investor Impilo, both nationally and internationally.

The primary responsibility will be:

  • Preparing and distributing financial monthly reports and other management information – including the CSR/ESG strategy and reporting.
  • Responsibility for the annual financial calendar – including Budget preparation, processes, and strategy plans.
  • Supporting the Board of Directors and responsible for collecting and distributing Board materials as well as participating at the Board meetings and taking minutes.
  • Supporting the Group Management Team in implementing initiatives and preparing presentations and analysis as they find suited.
  • Assisting the EGMT with presentations, analysis, and project management.

We are looking for a candidate with a strong financial background and solid business understanding – preferably within drug development. The candidate should have the appetite to be engaged in both strategic agendas and practical matters. The candidate will have a close cooperation with the finance team and should be willing to engage actively in the daily tasks in the finance organization.

We are a small organization at the outset, so we are looking for a candidate that is willing to be very “hands-on” and engage in a broad variety of tasks but also capable of supporting the organization in establishing a setup and processes that can support the business as it grows both organically and internationally through M&A.

The Business Controller will report to the Group CFO and have a close cooperation with both the Group Management team as well as the Board of Directors and the main shareholders investment team, but also the broader organization, so we are looking for a candidate with strong communication and interpersonal skills to ensure stakeholder management and solid cooperation at all levels of the organization.

The position is based at the Scantox site in Denmark in Lille Skensved, but the role is international, and the development is running at a high pace, so traveling and a flexible approach is very much a requirement.

Deadline for applications: No later than 30 November 2022.

We continually invite relevant candidates for interviews and reserve the option to invite candidates before the application deadline expires.
