Work in-depth on all tax matters
You will join our newly reorganised Tax department of 11 located in Aarhus, Sweden, UK and Germany. Situated in Aarhus, you will provide high-quality (inter)national tax advice, ensuring that Arla is compliant within the area of direct taxes, including proactively acting on international corporate income tax developments. This entails providing quality guidance on taxes, transfer pricing and finding the right solutions for business challenges.

Your main responsibilities include:

  • Participating and advising in tax audits, providing support to the local finance teams
  • Participating on tax related projects in collaboration with your colleagues in Finance and Accounting

Take charge of delivering the right advice

You apply your talent for stakeholder management to make sure that you take into account the advice of your colleagues as well as that of both internal and external experts. Doing so, you ensure that the guidance you provide leads to smart but sound decisions, high compliance and support from all stakeholders involved.

Tax-knowledgeable and great at stakeholder management
You are ready to put your knowledge of direct taxes and tax accounting into practice in a large global organisation. Also, you will be working in a complex stakeholder environment, so your ability to prioritise in a hectic setting is essential, and:
