Your Role

Deloitte is a world leading professional services firm, providing management consulting, accounting and auditing services and legal and tax advice. In Belgium we are the largest professional service provider. Our offices offer services to multi-national and large organisations, public institutions and innumerable small, fast-growing companies. Thanks to a strong regional presence and our multi-disciplinary approach, we are ideally placed to meet the requirements of a wide range of public institutions and small and large companies.

Our Consulting practice within Deloitte has a strong reputation and track record as Business Performance Consultants. We are a recognized leader in helping clients solve complex business problems, differentiated by our ability to execute on the advice we provide. Our multi-disciplinary competencies allow us to address CXO issues from every angle.

As part of the Finance Transformation team, we have a strong group of professionals who are fluent in the use and configuration of SAP BPC for planning, budgeting, forecasting and consolidation purposes.

Joining us, you will be reinforcing the existing SAP BPC team to design and implement planning, budgeting, forecasting as well as consolidation processes and solutions based on SAP BPC for our clients.

You will coach and develop others, and at the same time be coached and developed by your peers and seniors. Your Profile
