The role of Financial Controller will be working with a highly dynamic and collaborative team across Europe and Asia Pacific to manage the accounting operations and financial performance for the Private Flight Group. We are in the process of creating a Slovenian entity to employ locally – at this stage the successful applicant will need to become a self-employed person, with a view to moving to a local agreement once the set-up is complete. This is easier for a Slovenian citizen.

  • Quality focused – adopts a thorough approach and achieves high accuracy

We are in the process of setting up a Slovenian entity of the Swiss operating company, however, in the meantime, we seek to hire the role on a contract – the perfect candidate will be able to register as a self-employed person in Slovenia.

  • Career development via the opportunity to play a significant part in the development of a world-class technology service.
  • Dynamic and strong team culture based on unity, fun and a pioneering spirit.
  • Management team driven to achieve exemplary innovation and best practice throughout the business
  • Competitive renumeration package
